Initially, WWE had planned on giving Sheamus a big heel push so that he could challenge Roman Reigns for the world heavyweight championship. However, those plans were scrapped, and we now have a heel champion in Seth Rollins. The front office knew that there was only so much they could push the Celtic Warrior before he hit the ceiling. Well, rumors are floating around now that they are going to give him the Intercontinental Championship to work with.

A lot of people are under the impression that Sheamus is going to be a mystery entrant into the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania. However, WWE has been telling fans that there are only going to be 20 contestants. Each of those spots have been filled. So now, the belief is that the former world heavyweight champion is going to be thrown into the ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship instead.

One of the ideas floating around backstage in WWE right now is to have Sheamus making his much anticipated and much promoted return during the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestlemania. He would initially do so as a baby face before getting the fans to turn on him by costing Daniel Bryan the match. A title feud between the two would then take place for the next month or so.

There are talks that he could be thrown into the ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship at Wrestlemania.

When Sheamus finally makes his return to WWE, expect some big things for him. Reports have surfaced that management intends on giving him a big push, one that will see him become one of the top heels on the roster again. Management needs strong opponents to put over Roman Reigns, who is still expected to win the heavyweight championship at Wrestlemania. The Celtic Warrior would need to be built up first to fill tat role eventually.
