However, Sheamus had attempted to resist the negative feedback. He reckoned that this could help could cement McIntyre’s legacy as a World Champion and seeing it as an opportunity.

He said: “I don’t think this is going to be a bad match for Drew. I think it’s another opportunity for Drew to cement his legacy by going in against people like Goldberg and ultimately beating them. Maybe, he can go in there and take him out pretty fast. It’ll be interesting to see.”
