Since he was spotted wearing a cast over his arm, the internet wrestling community was quite curious as to how Sheamus was doing. Reports have now surfaced that the cast was simply a precaution. The former world heavyweight champion is dealing with tendon issues in one of his arms. WWE still has plans on using him on television, but he's not going to be very active because they don't want to risk not having him at Wrestlemania.

While much of the internet wrestling community has been predicting that Roman Reigns will recapture the WWE Heavyweight Championship at TLC, odds makers feel the opposite. Right now, Sheamus is a heavy favorite at -750. Odds on Reigns are +450. The belief is that the Celtic Warrior is going to keep the belt so that he can build up more momentum as a heel champion. That helps Roman in the long run.

One of the reasons why WWE put the world heavyweight championship on Sheamus is because they want the fans to root for whoever he is up against. The Celtic Warrior does a pretty decent job of generating heel heat. Plus, a lot of fans aren't keen to the idea of him being in the top spot. Management has noticed that the reaction to Roman Reigns has been a bit warmer because of it.

When Sheamus cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase at Survivor Series and stole the WWE Heavyweight Championship away from Roman Reigns, fans complained that the Celtic Warrior did not have enough momentum for the role.
