Rumors came out over the weekend on Sheamus possibly coming up on the end of his in-ring career due to his health. The Celtic Warrior reportedly suffered a concussion in April, which is why he’s been off WWE TV since before the 2019 Superstar Shakeup.
Drew McIntyre, who is good friends with The Celtic Warrior, recently spoke withtalkSPORT and was asked about the rumors.
“To see him go on and win multiple titles, Royal Rumbles, Money In The Banks and pretty much everything you can win is really awesome,” McIntyre said. “I’m so proud of everything he’s done, but I wouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet.”
Sheamus has a history with spinal stenosis, but there’s been no official word on his status, or any kind of career-ending injury. While Cesaro was brought to RAW in the Superstar Shakeup, there’s been no update provided on the status of Sheamus.
Cesaro spoke with the UK Express and confirmed that The Bar is taking a break right now. He left the door open for a reunion between the two with the WWE Wild Card Rule, and mentioned that Sheamus is focused on the WWE Intercontinental Title, currently held by Finn Balor.
“Of course we could [take advantage of the Wild Card Rule],” Cesaro said. “I think right now we’re still trying to figure out what we’re going to do, obviously I’m on RAW he’s on SmackDown. So, will we see The Bar in the future again? I definitely think, yes. When? I don’t know. I think Sheamus is very focused on the Intercontinental Championship right now. And I’m just trying to get my Singles run on track. So, The Bar is still existing but I think right now we’re definitely focused on our Singles careers.”
Sheamus continues to work out while he’s away from the WWE ring, as revealed on social media. Cesaro said he doesn’t know when Sheamus will be back in action, but he expects an update to be shared on Sheamus’ Celtic Warrior Workouts YouTube channel soon. Cesaro said Sheamus is doing great, but he’s not sure about his return.
“I have no clue about his return date,” Cesaro said. “I know he’s doing great, I know he just built his Celtic Warrior home gym that he had painted orange in nice Celtic Warrior-y colours. He’s one of the hardest workers I know and he’s making the most out of his time. So you should probably check his YouTube channel for updates, I’m sure he will let everybody know once he knows exactly what’s happening.”
