5 opponents for Sheamus when he returns to action on WWE SmackDown
It’s not unusual for WWE Superstars to return after a lengthy time off from the ring with the use of promos and vignettes, as we recently saw Authors of Pain return to the ring similarly and make an impact on RAW right away.
Sheamus, on the other hand, is a much bigger Superstar whose return should not be wasted by the company. This week on SmackDown, Sheamus, spotting his old look, appeared in a vignette announcing that he'll return soon.
In the vignette, Sheamus expressed his displeasure at the current state of affairs on SmackDown and vowed to put the house back in order. With that, the Celtic Warrior made a simple yet effective statement that may change the course of the entire brand in the coming months.
In this article, we'll look at the 5 possible opponents for Sheamus once he returns to the ring on SmackDown.
#5 Shorty G
One of the men Sheamus referred to during his promo and poked fun at was none other than the newly repackaged Shorty G. The Superstar has proven to be a handy singles competitor after breaking away from his usual tag team pairings and has gotten a massive push in recent times.
Shorty’s stock began to rise after his great performance during the King of the Ring tournament, followed by his feud with King Corbin. If Sheamus is to return as a heel, getting Shorty out of the way would prove to be the perfect return for the mammoth Superstar.
The company could bring back Sheamus as a man who’s there to stop the rise of newer Superstars as he doesn’t see them worthy enough and could take out Shorty first before moving onto other major feuds.
Shorty G is currently red-hot and raring to get into more feuds with top Superstars, which can help increase his popularity. A rivalry with Sheamus will surely help him stay in the spotlight.
