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.

As some of you may already know, Brock Lesnar worked a match against Sheamus at a special live event in Houston over the weekend. Many were under the assumption that WWE would use Lesnar in the main event because he was the biggest draw on the card. However, that was not the case, as Brock worked his match during the middle part of the show. The belief is that it enabled Lesnar to leave the arena as quickly as possible.

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.

However, it now appears that management purposely wants to cool off the MITB winner so that it would feel more like a surprise when they do get elevated into the top spot.
