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.

For the longest time, Sheamus wanted really badly to work a Wrestlemania match against the Undertaker. He feels that the opportunity is now gone because his streak has been broken. The Celtic Warrior now wants to work a match against the man that broke that streak, and he wants it to happen at the biggest wrestling pay per view of the year. He stated during an interview that he hopes that WWE finally gives him a crack at Brock Lesnar.

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.

While his vignettes have been playing on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown for what seems like an eternity now, WWE has no plans on bringing Sheamus back to television just yet. The idea being penciled in at the moment is to have him make his comeback at Wrestlemania itself. Management is still trying to decide which match he will be involved in. The two choices are the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal and the ladder match.

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.

Another potential Wrestlemania opponent has surfaced for Dean Ambrose. Depending on how well his match against Wade Barrett at Fast Lane goes, WWE could opt to make the switch at the big pay per view by replacing Barrett with the soon to return Sheamus, who is still heavily rumored to be making a heel turn to freshen up his stale character. Management definitely wants to reward Ambrose for his hard work with a spot on the card.

While he does not have the backstage power to convince management to give him a sustained and serious run in the main event again, Daniel Bryan does still wield some stroke within WWE. Reports have surfaced that he was able to convince management that it would be better for everyone is he were to wrestle against Dolph Ziggler at Wrestlemania instead of Sheamus as originally planned. The match could steal the show.
