Sheamus, the indomitable leader of The Brawling Brutes, has been on an awe-inspiring journey in his wrestling career, leaving a trail of unmatched tenacity and determination. With a passionate desire to claim the elusive Intercontinental Championship, the Celtic Warrior embarked on a relentless pursuit of glory, coming tantalizingly close to victory at events like Clash At The Castle and this year’s WrestleMania.
However, during his fervent quest, a twist of fate brought his longtime friend, Drew McIntyre, into the title picture, turning their camaraderie into bitter rivalry. The European superstars, once inseparable allies, found themselves on opposing ends, sparking a heated feud that sent shockwaves through the wrestling world.
Recently, Drew McIntyre took to Monday Night RAW to unleash a sly jab at Sheamus, playfully mocking their age difference when they first met. “When we first met, I was 19 and Sheamus was about 42 years old,” McIntyre quipped. Ever the quick-witted competitor, Sheamus couldn’t resist the perfect comeback.
In a Twitter post that set the internet abuzz, Sheamus shared two intriguing pictures from different points in time. By skillfully placing the images side by side, he humorously suggested that McIntyre now appears older than his own father. Not stopping there, Sheamus lightheartedly labeled Drew as a “backstabbing bast*rd,” a playful yet cutting reference to their transformed relationship.

Their paths last converged at WrestleMania 39, where the stakes were high in a fierce battle for the coveted Intercontinental title, with Gunther adding to the mayhem as the reigning champion. The bout was an intense triple-threat clash, and at a crucial moment, McIntyre thwarted Sheamus’ chance of pinning the Ring General, leading to a shared downfall at the hands of Gunther.
The aftermath of their encounter saw both superstars drafted to different brands following the WWE Draft 2023, adding even more intrigue to their simmering rivalry.
As the clash of egos and ambitions continues to reverberate through the WWE landscape, fans eagerly anticipate the next chapter in the epic saga between Sheamus and Drew McIntyre. With pride and honor at stake, the battle between these formidable competitors promises to be a showdown for the ages.
