The League of Nations was an epic failure.

Sheamus disappointed by League of Nations run

Published 1 Comments

In a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, Sheamus was honest about his feelings towards the stable he has recently spent the best part of half a year wrestling in.

The Celtic Warrior said that he felt the League of Nations had not done him, or anyone else in the group, any favors during their run. This makes sense given their initial push to the top of the card before they were quickly relegated to opening act material.

It was an odd fall from grace as all four members of the League were strong individually. Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio have both held world titles with the WWE, Rusev is a monster heel, and Wade Barrett was once the leader of the hottest act in professional wrestling when he debuted with the Nexus.

The problem the League of Nations faced is that they ran into Roman Reigns at the time Vince McMahon was pushing Reigns to the moon.

After losing a 4-on-1 handicap match to the seemingly invincible Reigns the League lost any credibility they had as a legitimate force in the company.

Somewhat ironically this was the second time such potential had been lost with a Barrett group as the aforementioned Nexus angle was ruined when the seven men couldn't stop John Cena doing what John Cena does.

The League of Nations was only disbanded in April of this year, but it is pretty clear how badly it failed.

Both Del Rio and Barrett have left the WWE, with Barrett basically doing so in the middle of the story line. Sheamus is in the middle of a series of matches that will never end against Cesaro, while the company is trying to rebuild Rusev after a year of misusing his character.
