Since he is viewed as a major marketing chip in Europe, Finn Balor is currently overseas with the top WWE stars as they tour the continent. He and Sheamus are both from Ireland, so the hope is that they can draw in a packed house. Another reason why Balor is on the tour is because management is seriously considering a promotion to main roster in the near future. This would enable the front office to get a much closer look at him.

As many of you already saw on Monday Night Raw, Sheamus made his return to WWE this week. The front office gave him a little momentum boost by doing a heel turn. That is not the only change that we will see with the character. During the Smackdown taping, the former world heavyweight champion was given a new entrance theme song and a new entrance routine. For them to go through this much trouble, a push is obviously expected.

WWE has had a change of heart with Sheamus and his impending return from an injury. Initially, the plan was to have him making his comeback on the next episode of Smackdown. For whatever reasons, management has decided to postpone things.

For those that might not have noticed, Sheamus has not worked a televised match for WWE since November. The reason for that is because he was sent back to Europe for the holidays, so that he could heel an assortment of injuries and ailments. Management wanted him to be fresh because they intend on giving him a substantial push upon his return this month. They feel that now is the right time to put him back into the main event scene.
