Sheamus reveals the differences he's noticed between SmackDown Live and Monday Night RAW

Sheamus has had a pretty successful WWE career to date. 

The Celtic Warrior is a four-time world champion and has also had runs with the United States title and more recently, he was a tag team champ too. 

In fact, he's formed a great partnership with Cesaro - and The Bar dominated on Monday Night RAW between 2016 and 2018, holding the tag titles four times. 

THE BAR MOVES TO SMACKDOWN

After dropping the RAW belts in bizarre fashion to Braun Strowman and Nicholas at WrestleMania 34, The Bar's run on the red brand ended. 

In April, as part of the Superstar Shake-up, the pair were drafted to SmackDown Live. 

Unfortunately for them, it seems they've joined the brand that has a far more stacked tag team division, compared to RAW. 

SMACKDOWN VS RAW TAG DIVISIONS

On SD, The Bar have joined the likes of The New Day, The Usos, Team Hell No and SAnitY in challenging The Bludgeon Brothers for the tag titles. 

Compared to RAW, where a comedy pairing like The B-Team have a title shot against The Deleters of Worlds, opportunities on the blue brand are much harder to come by.

In fact, Sheamus and Cesaro have barely been seen on SmackDown since making the move over - purely because they don't currently have a programme to work. 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SD AND RAW

After spending time on both brands, The Bar know what it's like to perform on both. 

According to Sheamus, there are a few interesting differences between SmackDown and RAW, and some may further explain why we're yet to see him and Cesaro on Tuesday nights.

"It's very relaxed here. It's not as pressurized, and it's also a shorter show, so there are limited spots, and they have to rotate the stories more," Sheamus told CantonRep.com, per Wrestling Inc.

"On a three-hour show it sometimes feels a little stretched, but with a two-hour show, I don't think there's any danger of anyone getting over-exposed here.

"We really haven't got started here yet. We're just waiting to get that opportunity to really kick things off."

It's interesting to note that even the superstars feel less pressure on the blue brand, compared to WWE's flagship RAW show. 

Although it's less pressurized, the fact that it's a shorter show may be frustrating, especially to stars like Sheamus and Cesaro, who are yet to get going on SmackDown.
