While speaking to BT Sport, Sheamus was asked if Ronaldo is perfect for WWE. Sheamus immediately replied to it, saying, “He wouldn’t last five seconds in the ring. He is too soft.”

The WWE superstar even said that Ronaldo has got no physicality. Sheamus further revealed that footballers go down when the wind blows or a blade of grass hits their shin.

Now, this might not go well for the WWE superstar. We all know about the huge and crazy fan base Cristiano Ronaldo has. They will definitely not be happy on hearing what Sheamus had to say about their favorite footballer. As Sheamus is also known to be a Liverpool fan, this will only add more spice, as Liverpool and Manchester United are considered to be arch-rivals.

There always seems to be a debate between the football fans on who is the greatest football player ever.

Sheamus said, “Is he one of the greatest players ever? Absolutely not. He is not. But he is definitely a world-class player, among the best in the last decade.”


“But even if he scores a penalty, he’s all about the camera, you know what I mean. Shirt off, ‘where’s the camera?’… I’m not knocking the guy or hating him, he knows exactly what he is doing,” Sheamus added.
