Sheamus Says Today’s Product Is Missing Characters

Jan 18, 2019 - by James Walsh

In an interview with Solo Wrestling, Sheamus spoke about today’s product and he said that it’s missing characters, unlike the 1980s and 90s when there were various characters everywhere. Here are highlights:

On what today’s product is missing: “Today a very different product is offered. I think we’re missing some characters. Yes, I believe it. I think we are leaving the creation of characters a little abandoned. Any important series like Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead base their product around the characters and their background. I think the athletes and wrestlers that we have today are the best in the history of the business, although in turn I think the business has changed to what people want to see.”

On how characters should be reinforced: “Then you see Finn Bálor with his alter ego from The Demon, you also have the Bludgeon Brothers – there are a lot of characters, but I think they should be reinforced a bit more. Perhaps one of the most popular characters that WWE has right now is the prodigy of NXT, The Velveteen Dream. He is a 23-year-old star, talented and with an arrogant character who is destined to do great things in the future.”

On what he means by his comments: “I do not mean characters like The Berzerker or Papa Shango. I do not mean unrealistic characters. I mean things about which people can feel identified. But that’s one thing that talent should do itself, and it’s taking the opportunity to show fans a personal side. Although I reiterate again, we have never had as many talented stars as we have today.”

On his favorite wrestling character: “As for personality, without a doubt my favorite of all time is Macho Man Randy Savage. As for character, there is no doubt that the greatest of all time is The Undertaker, right? Look at all the time he has spent in the business and everything he has achieved. He is one of the greatest in history and I will remember him forever.”
