If reports are to be believed, WWE has plans in place for it's Irish star Sheamus to turn heel in the next few weeks.

This is a move that will be welcomed by fans as the character has been going nowhere fast lately.

Sheamus himself will be relieved as well as he hasn't had a meaningful match for a long time now.

The 'Celtic Warrior' made his WWE debut in 2009 on an episode of ECW as a heel and went on to have a feud with Goldust.

Just a few months later Sheamus won a battle royal to become number one contender for the WWE championship, which was held by John Cena.

Sheamus defeated Cena at the PPV 'TLC' to become the WWE champion.

With that win, Sheamus became the first Irish-born WWE champion.

It also took him only 166 days after making his debut to win the top prize, meaning it was the second shortest time taken to win the title after making his debut.

Impressive!

But, despite a second WWE championship win and becoming 'King Of The Ring' in 2010, Sheamus needed a change.

That change would be a face turn.

This would ultimately lead to a World Heavyweight championship match against the then champion Daniel Bryan after the Irishman won the 2012 'Royal Rumble'.

Sheamus went on to beat Bryan in a record 18 seconds.

He ultimately lost the title to The Big Show, ending his 210 day reign.

Since then it has been a slow painful demise for the fans favourite.

Rivalries with the likes of The Big Show, The Shield, Mark Henry and Alberto Del Rio have seen the ginger haired hard man slowly climb down the talent ladder.

Now though, it looks like the WWE creative team have decided Sheamus needs a change of direction.

A planned heel turn is expected to take place after the European tour, thus allowing the change to go smoothly.

The worry from WWE is that if it takes place before or during the European tour, the fans won't react how officials would hope.

With the change due very soon, we take a look at the ten reasons a heel turn will mean Sheamus is going to dominate the summer.
