Sheamus O'Shaunessy

The UK has had an amazing history in Professional Wrestling, and has produced many great talents. But there are only a few who have made the leap from the UK, into the International scene. Finlay, William Regal, Adrian Street, "Rollerball" Rocco, Paul Burchill, Nigel McGuiness and The British Bulldogs all spring to mind.

But the big question remains, the question never put more succinctly than by that great orator of our time, Bill Goldberg, when he said, "who's next?"

Many have already stepped up to the plate... Drew McIntyre, Doug Williams, Steve Lewington ( DJ Gabriel ), Stu Sanders, and Katie Lea... but the one guy who I believe is ready to break out and become the next big star in wrestling, is Sheamus O"Shaunessy ( seen here blinding tourists who may have mistakenly stared directly into the glare of his paleness ).
I mean, check out the guys credentials. He was trained by Larry Sharpe, the man responsible for releasing Bam Bam Bigelow, Balls Mahoney, Big Show, and King Kong Bundy into the world. Whilst wrestling for Irish Whip Wrestling, All Star Wrestling, and various other UK Indie promotions, he pinned the likes of Matt Striker, Xavier, Vampiro and D'Lo Brown, as well as the afforementioned Stu Sanders and Drew McIntyre. He's a former FCW Heavyweight champion ( pinning current ECW Champ Jake Swagger to win the belt ). He's already taken Triple H's Pedigree on an episode of RAW. And if you wanna know how tough he REALLY is... well he served as Bono's bodyguard for a time, and you've got to be tough to ward off the number of people that want to slap THAT guy around!!

Currently competing in WWE's developmental territory FCW, I think it's only a matter of time until the "fiery red hand" of the "big ginger headed fella" starts wrecking some serious havoc on a worldwide basis... "EASY!!" as Big Daddy might have said.
