Nevertheless, as noted by Dave Bautista aka Batista in a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Sheamus is apparently fit to get back in the ring and now simply waiting for WWE to include him in its Creative plans and reinsert him into the company's on-screen storylines.

The heart of the matter

Speaking to his tag-team partner Cesaro, Sheamus explained that it was boredom, that eventually resulted in the latter creating his Celtic Warrior Workouts YouTube channel.

Sheamus noted that he was simply bored of doing his workout routines and repeating the same exercises, which in turn caused him to start working out alongside other WWE Superstars.

Evidently, his workouts with fellow WWE Superstars helped provide content for his YouTube channel which now boasts more than 300,000 subscribers. Furthermore, Sheamus added that the wide variety of workouts helped him lose around 40 pounds and completely transform his body within a span of 6 months.

What's next?

Sheamus' incredible body transformation is a testament to his work-ethic and discipline - it wouldn't be hyperbole to state that the talented Superstar truly is a Celtic Warrior.
