Sheamus recently spoke with Zap2It to promote TMNT 2 and commented on WWE SmackDown going live. The full interview can be found at this link and below are highlights:

The Brand Split:

"I think it's great. I think the brand split is good. When I came into WWE in 2009, I had a huge opportunity and got a huge push. It was fantastic. Myself and Daniel Bryan made it because of Smackdown. We were doing two-minute segments on 'Raw' before we moved over to the blue brand. To me, Smackdown is much more the wrestling style show."

New talents taking advantage of the split:

"The great thing about Smackdown was, when things were separated last time, a lot of guys were able to breakout. We've got great characters and such a vast pool of talent that hasn't really gotten the chance to shine yet."
