WWE: Sheamus becomes first superstar to reach TV win milestone

Published Add your comment

Sheamus made his own version of history last month when he climbed the ladder and became Mr Money in the Bank for the first time, beating off the challenge of six other superstars in the process.

But it seems this isn't the only history making the Celtic warrior has recently accomplished. 


Sheamus' count out win over Roman Reigns on the sixth of July was his 200th singles victory in WWE. He is the first WWE superstar to win this accolade, with faces of WWE, John Cena and Randy Orton, lagging behind with 188 and 197 victories respectively.

Not so fast

Greatest in WWE history?

Perhaps not, remember the records held by The North American Wrestling Rankings blog only began in 2006, two years after John Cena and Randy Orton debuted, so it is likely the two have already beaten Sheamus' record but there is no proof of it. 

Sheamus is a former World Champion and was on an impressive debut run in WWE back in 2008, but this all changed after he dropped the world title and seemingly dropped off the map.

He also took a lot of time out of WWE in 2013 following a torn labrum in his shoulder, this caused him to miss six months of action but he returned at the 2014 Royal Rumble looking as sharp as ever.

Sheamus also took time out in 2014 to have surgery before he returned back in March with his new look and heel gimmick. 

More wins to come?

Sheamus faces Randy Orton at Battleground next weekend in a match that is still yet to be announced but has been months in the making, dating back to before Orton had some personal time to become engaged.

He returned to Raw last week and attacked Sheamus to reignite their feud. 

Sheamus is on his way to being in WWE history if he cashes in his Money in the Bank contract to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

He will be just the sixth man to hold the title after Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins, but it depends on who comes out of the match at Battleground with the title as Seth faces the Beast who is bidding to become the first ever two time champion.
