We have previously witnessed how huge stars like WWE Hall of Famer Edge and Daniel Bryan had retired in the first place due to life-threatening neck injuries. Though they made their returns eventually but that does not rule out the fact, they missed out on several years of their careers.

The former WWE Champion Sheamus also assumed that the injury issues would put an end to his illustrious career. ‘The Celtic Warrior’ was absent from WWE television after WrestleMania 35 in 2019 but recovered from his issues before returning in January 2020.

Sheamus recently spoke to ComicBook, and revealed that he had struggled, but physical therapy, a different diet, and dynamic movements helped him heal and recover.

“Yeah, I did mate (thoughts on his career ending). I did. I’m not going to lie. I had a really, really bad concussion, and I had some other issues going on. But, I went through the physical therapy. I got myself in great shape. I went to the dietitian Jerry Ward so I could get fast and carry the ice out. I was determined to get myself in the best shape possible.”

Sheamus also stated that the last year and a half has been a great time for him in the ring. He has been able to work with a wide variety of WWE talents, especially the up-and-coming stars.

The former WWE United States Champion revealed dynamic stretching is the secret to his career revival. He feels great as he has a better understanding of his body.

“I’ve never felt better. I feel better than ten years ago when I debuted, just because I know a lot more about my body. I do a lot more dynamic stretching.”

He had won the United States title from Riddle at WrestleMania 37, but eventually lost it to Damian Priest last month at SummerSlam. He recently fought Priest and Drew McIntyre in a triple threat match for the title but was unsuccessful in reclaiming that after Priest retained the title.
