Sheamus, real name Stephen Farrelly, from Dublin, Ireland, made a name for himself at WWE Wrestling in USA. 4 times World Champion, 4 Times Raw Tag Team Champion, twice USA Champion, and 4 times WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus first joined WWE in 2009, making a lot of the fiery red-haired Irish looks, and after winning 2010 King of the Ring, and twice USA Champion, he won the 2012 Rumble in the Ring, which paved the way for him to beat Daniel Bryan in 18 seconds at WrestleMania to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. He also won the 2015 Money in the Bank Contract and joined forces with Cesaro to win the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team titles. He went on a break in 2015, and returned in 2020 to critique WWE’s current stars, conquering the Blue Brand, and turning his attention to the Red Brand.
