Following his excellent win over Cesaro at the WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view on Sunday night, United States Champion Sheamus has revealed who he would love to face.

Speaking to Sirius' Busted Open Radio the 36-year-old explained how he felt that WWE is attempting to promote Championships such as the US and Intercontinental titles.

"There is only one WWE World Heavyweight Championship which is held by Brock Lesnar. Brock isn't there all the time and there is going to be a situation where it's a great opportunity to push those [other] titles."

The Celtic Warrior also spoke about the possibility of having the opportunity to face Lesnar. It is fair to say the Irishman did not shy away from showing how in favor he is of the idea.

"I would love a crack at Brock. I have been asking for a long time for a crack at Brock Lesnar. There is no one more physical in the ring than Brock. That is something I would love to do. Who knows what the story is and where it's going but I would love to face Brock."

The Dubliner certainly proved his worth during his match against Cesaro, as he had an answer for everything the Swiss threw at him and ultimately defended his title by landing an infamous Brogue Kick.

Roman Reigns

Sheamus also touched upon how he feels Roman Reigns will cope with returning from injury after a prolonged period of time off from WWE. The Irishman had a serious shoulder injury, which saw him out of action for months while it was recently announced that Reigns required emergency surgery for a hernia.

The Celtic Warrior opened up

"I think Roman will fit back in. Like for example when Daniel Bryan went down, Roman came in and stepped up. Maybe some new guys from NXT will come up and get an opportunity. I think Roman will come back stronger and sometimes when you go away for a bit and the fans appreciate you when you come back. Roman will come back stronger and more determined."
