Sheamus has yet to return to the ring, but he feels better than ever.
Sidelined since April, Sheamus returned to WWE television on Nov. 29, appearing in a vignette to promote his eventual return to WWE SmackDown. Sheamus reportedly suffered a concussion in April and there were even rumors of his retirement, though the rumors were denied by other WWE talent.
Speaking on After The Bell, Sheamus addressed his layoff and how he's feeling now.
"I think everybody on the main roster is dealing with injuries. It's definitely been a lot with me. Obviously, my neck was one of those rumors. Honestly, the last seven months I've been off, I've used it really well. I've been in the gym really hard, focusing a lot on my fitness, well-being, diet, nutrition, I got a chance to go around the globe. Time off is great. A little bit of time off can heal the body, God knows, from my perspective, (being a) WWE superstar, there is no harder job. There's no one who works as hard as we do and no athlete who can do what we do. I have a YouTube channel, Celtic Warrior Workouts, where I do workouts with different WWE superstars. I was focusing on that quite a lot. I learned an awful lot from that channel and I started to apply a lot of those techniques that I wasn't aware of before into my workouts. It definitely helped change the game for me. I've never felt better. I feel better now than I did ten years ago," he said.
It is unknown when Sheamus will officially make his in-ring return. He last wrestled on Apr. 9 in a six-man tag team bout against The New Day.
