Sheamus is certainly keeping busy as of late. In addition to his WWE duties, he’s currently deep into the press rounds for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, in which he plays goon-turned-rhinocerous-goon Rocksteady.
During Sheamus’ latest press conference for the movie, he intimated that he might want to go toe-to-toe with Stephen Amell, who plays Casey Jones in TMNT 2. Amell, the star of the hit series Arrow, is certainly no stranger to the WWE, as he made his in-ring debut at last year’s SummerSlam, teaming with Neville against Stardust and the then-Cosmic King Barrett, in what is often hailed as the best celebrity match of all time.
Here’s what Sheamus had to say about fighting Amell, via Comicbook.com:
“He did a stellar performance at Summerslam. I’d love the opportunity to take him on in the ring! The first time I sat down and met Stephen on set, he surprised me being a huge WWE fan, and so knowledgeable about it for all his life. I talked a bit about what I do, I was like, ‘Oh you know, come off the top rope, this and that,’ then he shows me this video of him doing Parkour, jumping off walls, doing flips, coming down, another flip, jump out to another wall… I was like, oh, I’ll stop talking about myself now. I was pretty impressed.”
Given that Amell recently referred to his SummerSlam match as “terrifying” (and that was a tag team match with Stardust and King Barrett), I’m not sure he’s too eager to step in there one-on-one with as notorious a bruiser as Sheamus.
