- Above is the latest episode of Celtic Warrior Workouts from Sheamus' personal YouTube channel, featuring WWE NXT Superstar Xia Li. This is the first episode in several months as The Fella quit uploading new workouts while he was away from WWE TV. As noted, Sheamus returned on Friday's SmackDown to save Shorty G from a beatdown by The Revival, but the segment ended with Shorty G being laid out by a Brogue Kick.
Sheamus wrote the following for his 95th episode, featuring Li: "WWE Superstar Sheamus aka The Celtic Warrior here... NXT's Chinese powerhouse Xia Li is fast building a reputation away from the WWE Performance Center, backstage at Raw & Smackdown, as being an absolute beast in the gym. It was Sasha Banks who first brought her to my attention, so I checked her out her social media stuff and immediately knew I had to get her onto Celtic Warrior Workouts. And how right I was, this kung fu kicking crossfit girl hit me up with two back-to-back insane workouts at the PC in Orlando. Not embarrassed to admit, Xia Li's workout was the toughest I've done on this channel to date and it really has to be seen to be believed. Sometimes it's worth the search to find new talent when you... Brave Change."
