During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, Sheamus revealed that he had some backstage heat with Shelton Benjamin when he first started out in WWE. He stated that Benjamin had a weird fascination about pointing out how the Celtic Warrior was a rookie, even though he had worked in the industry for approximately seven years before joining the company. The Irish born wrestler stayed professional despite being bothered by it.
