Life currently isn't going well for either Sheamus in the WWE, or for Martin Skrtel at Liverpool Football Club.
While The Celtic Warrior and the League of Nations may have won their WrestleMania 32 match against The New Day last weekend, on Monday Night Raw, they lost to the same team, except this time the Tag Team Championship was on the line, meaning they missed out on the titles.
As for the Liverpool defender, his side is currently residing in ninth position in the Premier League table, eight points adrift of a Europa League spot with eight games left to play. The Slovakian had missed a vast majority of the season through injury, and only recently returned against Southampton on March 20.

He came on in that game at half time, when Liverpool were still 2-0 up, but he made several errors during his time on the pitch, which ultimately provided a way for Southampton to get back into the game, and they went on to win by a scoreline of 3-2.
As a passionate Liverpool fan, Sheamus has revealed to NBCSN's Men in Blazers how he would deal with the problem that is Martin Skrtel.
He said, according to Bleacher Report: "One brogue kick, fella. That’s about it," he told hosts Roger Bennett and Michael Davies, referring to his signature wrestling move, via Talking Baws. "Just put him down, put him down so he can’t cause any more calamities in the team. I do like Skrtel, he’s been a great servant, but, man, it’s tough to watch."
One simple Brogue Kick is what Sheamus believes could help turn Skrtel into a better player and, in turn, help Liverpool's season. Someone ought to pass the message on to Jurgen Klopp! Ethically, though, it's probably not the right thing to do.
The Reds have at least one game on their positional rivals competing for fifth place in the league, so they still have a good chance of earning European football next season via the league. However, this isn't their only way they could achieve this aim, as they're still in the Europa League.
If they win this competition, they'll be entered into the Champions League, but in their way at the moment is a tough two-leg quarter-final game against Borussia Dortmund, Klopp's former team.
Obstacles are in Liverpool's way to earn European football next season in any direction they look. They certainly will have to do a lot of wrestling with other teams in order to achieve their goals, so a Brogue Kick here and there probably wouldn't hurt.
