WWE star Sheamus: 'It's hard to balance a relationship and my career'

WWE wrestler Sheamus has admitted his busy career has affected his love life.

The Dubliner, who’s real name is Stephen Farrelly, revealed his busy schedule hasn’t allowed him time to find romance.

“Working in the WWE requires a strong level of commitment. It is very hard to balance a family alongside it,” he said.

“I’ve been a wrestler for nine years now and I’m still a single fella. If you’re on the road for five days a week, it’s very hard on your partner or kids.”

Speaking on Ireland AM, the 38-year-old is set to star in the latest instalment of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films and admitted he took the role as he was a fan when he was younger.

“I grew up watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and it’s basically come full circle,” he explained.

“Grown-ups are bringing their kids to watch a movie that they watched themselves as kids. So it’s a really cool vibe.”

Starring as Rocksteady in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of Shadows, the flame-haired wrestler revealed he auditioned for the part when he got injured.

“I didn’t think anything of it because there were so many going for the role,” he admitted.

“Then I went to New York and they said ‘if you want it, it’s yours’ and I couldn’t believe it.” “
