Sheamus says tagging with Cesaro revived his passion for pro wrestling

WWE superstar Sheamus recently spoke with Inside the ropes on a wide variety of pro wrestling topics, including his thoughts on the newly announced NXT Europe brand and whether he would like to be involved. The Celtic Warrior also discusses how tagging with Cesaro (Claudio in AEW) rekindled his passion for pro wrestling after feeling like some of it was gone. Highlights from the interview can be found below.

He says he got a lot of his passion back when he worked with Claudio (Cesaro):

You just stay motivated man. You have to have the passion. I’m not going to lie, there have been times in my career when I felt like I had lost that a bit. When I started tagging with Cesaro, Claudio, I got a lot of that in return when we did The Bar. I also learned an awful lot from him and just being in the ring with him and tagging with him was great for me, you know?

On NXT Europe:

I would definitely be involved, absolutely [Sheamus said about NXT Europe]. Every chance I get to come back home is great. I feel like 15 years in the United States – yes, about 15 years in America and I, you know, the first big part of my career, was very focused on everything that’s going on. I didn’t really come home much. I remember that even at the beginning of my career, when I went back for visas and stuff, I would try to get back to the US as soon as possible, but I would definitely like to go home more often. The older I get, the more I miss me daddy, me ma, you know what I mean? My family and everyone at home so if there is something European I would love to be a part of it. Help all the talent, of course, help the promotion get off the ground. I’m sure Finn [Balor] feels the same, Drew [McIntyre] feels the same and I’m sure Butch and Luke feel the same – Butch and Ridge [Holland]. Wow, I really need some more coffee… But no, honestly, to get them off the ground, to help them back and then of course get a lot more home would be great for me. That would be a perfect scenario. Also, there’s probably the European Championship that will be there, so I’d love to get my hands on that too. Bring back the old European title.
