Sheamus Life

Stephen Farley (born 28 January 1978) is an Irish professional wrestler and actor.

He is now signed to WWE, appearing under the brand Sheamus (pronounced ) prior to joining WWE, and was a two-time World Heavyweight Champion during his time in Irish Whip Wrestling (IWW).

Since joining the WWE main roster in 2009, he will continue to be a four-time world champion, winning the WWE (World Heavyweight) Championship three times and the WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once more.

He is the first Irish world champion and a five-time tag team champion (four Raw and one SmackDown) with his partner Cesaro.

He has won the 2010 King of the Ring tournament, the 2012 Royal Rumble match, and the 2015 Money in the Bank ladder match, making him the second wrestler (after Edge) to achieve all three titles.

Early life

Stephen Farley was born in Dublin's Cabra suburb on January 28, 1978. He was born in Dublin's North Great George's Street. He speaks fluent Irish and has attended Scoil Caoimhin Primary and the Gaelscoil Collegiate Mhuire Secondary School. He performed in the Palestrina Choir until the age of 13. During this time, he appeared on the Irish shows The Late Late Show and Live at 3. He played Gaelic football for the Erin's Isle team, where he was once named "sports star of the month." He also played rugby for the National College of Ireland, where he obtained a National Diploma. He is a former computer programmer and also worked as a bodyguard for a nightclub, resulting in him occasionally serving as a bodyguard for Bono and Larry Mullen, Jr. of U2, as well as actress Denise van Outen.

Personal life

Farley lives in Nashville, Tennessee, having lived in Lutz, Florida, as of 2020. He is a fan of the Celtic FC, Liverpool FC, and the Tennessee Titans.

Farley revealed in November 2017 that he suffers from spinal stenosis.


Sheamus Career

Professional wrestling career

Farley was inspired to become a professional wrestler by watching British wrestling on World of Sport and American wrestling on the WWF. He began training at Larry Sharpe's Monster Factory wrestling academy in April 2002, alongside Tank Toland and Cliff Compton, after Bret Hart's advice. Sheamus O'Shaunessy, a fan favorite against Robert Pigeon, debuted six weeks later. After smacking an opponent in the groin, he acquired the nickname of the "Irish Curse" (a play on a slang term allegedly denoting a man's inability to function sexually after drinking an excessive amount of whiskey). After botching a hip toss, he soon suffered a serious neck injury, ending his career for two years.

Farley portrayed a fiann, a mythical Irish warrior, by relying on Celtic mythology, leprechauns, and alcoholism, moving away from Irish stereotypes of lucky charms, leprechauns, and alcoholism. He was aware of the four cycles of Irish mythology and, inspired by Jim Fitzpatrick's artwork, incorporated sword- and axe-wielding images into his gimmick. This included the creation of his own pendant, the crossos, which combines the Celtic cross with a Celtic War sword to illustrate his character's "indigenous roots" with a combination of warrior strength and a solid moral core.

Farley, who is still using the ring name Sheamus O'Shaunessy, started wrestling at Dublin's recently opened Irish Whip Wrestling (IWW). He then played in his first match for the promotion at Mount Temple on July 9th, defeating Mark Burns in a thrilling attempt. He went on to win a battle royal the next month.

O'Shaunessy spent the remainder of the year in a feud with Vid Vain after losing to his tag teammate Joey Cabray on the night he won the war royal. The tag team was defeated by the game on October 22nd and 23, resulting in O'Shaunessy recruiting CJ Summers to assist with the defeat. In singles action the following day, O'Shaunessy was still struggling to defeat Vain. Despite these losses, his good showings earned him a spot against Alex Shane in a guest match for the Frontier Wrestling Alliance (FWA) in the Frontier Wrestling Alliance (FWA) British Heavyweight Championship. Despite having a winning show and coming close, Red Vinny interfered in the competition and cost him the championship.

He recovered from this loss by teaming with Raven to defeat Shane and Vinny in March 2005. This victory was part of a winning streak over the month of March, where O'Shaunessy wrestled twice a day, including an 11-man Rumble victory, and a ten-man tag team match took place on March 27. A string of victories, other than one disqualification to Vain, put him into a good shape for the inaugural IWW International Heavyweight Champion. When O'Shaunessy defeated Vinny and then Vain in the quarter and semi finals on March 28, respectively, he put an end to his key rivalries. He met Darren Burridge in the final round and became the IWW's first champion, but he had to play again in a Dublin evening show after defeating Burridge and Vinny once more in a tag match with Vain.

O'Shaunessy's first successful title defense came against Burridge the following month, but Burridge would not let his grudge rest, blaming O'Shaunessy for his continued assault and ultimately costing him the trophy against D'Lo Brown on May 29. O'Shaunessy earned revenge in July by defeating Burridge in a revenge match, but lost to him in an arm wrestling match the following day. Nevertheless, he kept his quest to regain the title by beating Vinny and Red Viper in August, setting him up to win the International Heavyweight Championship in October from Brown in Newcastle, England.

O'Shaunessy found himself embroiled in a recent feud with rising Scottish wrestling star "Thee" Galloway, who later admitted that he was his most feared opponent. He won his first championship match on January 28, 2006, extending their rivalry from previous non-title matches. Galloway's blue hues of Scotland quickly took on a patriotic hue, mirroring the Old Firm's football derby between Rangers and Celtic. This football allusion became particularly prominent when the two teams met again at Verona Football Club again for the title, but the match became a Lumberjack match, and the winner and champion remained the same.

With Galloway defeated, O'Shaunessy continued to dominate by defeating Valianto on March 17th. Galloway won two out of three falls matches against the champion the next day, but O'Shaunessy won two falls to one the next day; O'Shaunessy's match ended in the same manner as O'Shaunessy's on the independent circuit, with the same result. O'Shaunessy took on Pierre Marcaeu briefly and defeated him in two consecutive title matches only to find Galloway had earned another shot after Galloway was briefed. Galloway's next challenge to O'Shaunnesy was stipulated as a result of a Last Man Standing match, owing to their rivalry growing. O'Shaunessy retained the name as he did in June with the same stipulation. Also, in what would be his last match with the promotion, O'Shaunessy dropped the IWW International Heavyweight Championship in a singles match against Galloway on August 28th.

O'Shaunessy has occasionally visited Great Britain to make appearances on the British independent circuit as well as wrestling in Ireland. He was invited to Wales' Celtic Wrestling promotion in April 2006 as a contender for their top spot, but was defeated by champion Chris Recall. He was recruited by London's LDN Wrestling in November 1999 to appear on their Capital TV show where Benedict defeated William Hill early in the game and then insulted O'Shaunessy after the match.

During his stay in Asia, he worked for Brian Dixon's All Star Wrestling, giving him a glimpse of large audiences that he had never seen in Ireland, as well as wrestling English veteran Robbie Brookside and other British wrestlers, such as Nigel McGuinness and Doug Williams. In a losing effort against Chris Raaber, Michael Kovac, and Robert Ray Kreuzer at the European Wrestling Association's Night of Gladiators, he also represented the United Kingdom in a Battle of the Nations tag team match against the UK and Austria with Drew McDonald and The Celtic Warrior.

O'Shaunessy also took him to Britain, where he long-running rivalry with Galloway. He had already wrestled in Galloway's home province, British Championship Wrestling (BCW), twice in 2005, losing to Jay Phoenix on the day before Phoenix lost to Galloway in March and then defeated Wolfgang, one of BCW's top performers, by countout in September. O'Shaunessy returned to Scotland to compete in BCW's Path to Glory tour in the first year, but then conceded a loss to him the next night. Although the feud came to an end in Ireland in August 2006, it didn't appear in the Irish Sea when the two fighters fought for the umbrella title Real Quality Wrestling (RQW) the following year. The two first met at Taking On The World show in April, which resulted in a double countout. In June, a match that was out of a decision resulted in a replay and one of O'Shaunessy's last on the independent circuit, where Galloway defeated O'Shaunessy in a No Holds Barred match versus RQW Heavyweight Championship matches.

Stu Sanders, a Scottish wrestler, appeared on the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) show Raw in Manchester, England, on November 13, 2006, eschewing D-Generation X from ringside, but only for O'Shaunessy to later receive a Pedigree from Triple H. He received another set of tryout matches against Galloway in Milan and London, as well as Sanders, WWE wrestler Jimmy Wang Yang, and Monster Factory shaming Domino. This culminated in an interview and the signing of a long-term deal with WWE, which required him to leave the United States.

On October 2nd, O'Shaunessy debuted in the WWE developmental territory Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), defeating Bryan Kelly in a double-debute match. Although wrestling regularly, he was not part of any long-running feuds, but he did compete with a variety of short-term tag teams, including Hade Vansen and Jake Hager, before joining with Kafu (and supervised by Dave Taylor) in the inaugural FCW Florida Tag Team Champions. After beating The British Lions ("The Rebel" Christopher Gray and "The Rascal"), they advanced to the second round, but they lost to Brad Allen and Nick Nemeth in the second round.

By September, O'Shaunessy had honed his attention on singles competition and fought his way to the top of the card, defeating former partner Hager for the Florida Heavyweight Championship. On October 23, he defended the title against Hager and took on a slew of opponents, with Eric Escobar and Joe Hennig both rising to prominence. In a four-way match involving Hennig and Drew McIntyre (formerly Drew Galloway), O'Shaunessy eventually lost the title to Escobar on November 11th.

O'Shaunessy spent 2009 on gold, winning two shots in January and February at the Florida Tag Team Champions Johnny Curtis and Tyler Reks, but both attempts were unsuccessful. He challenged the two races for the first time in March, this time with McIntyre as his partner, but he was unable to defeat McIntyre in the Florida Heavyweight Championships the following month. He had a string of chances throughout the year, but he didn't win any more titles until being called up to WWE television, unsuccessfully challenging Justin Angel for the Florida Heavyweight Championship in November.

O'Shaunessy was in a tense match on SmackDown taping losing to R-Truth on July 22, 2008. O'Shaunessy began appearing at the Raw brand's house shows in May, and he defeated Jamie Noble on both 8 and 9 May with another dramatic match win over Noble ahead of an episode of Raw.

Farnham made his unannounced debut as a criminal under the shortened ring name of Sheamus, defeating local competitor Oliver John on Sunday. Sheamus soon found herself in a heated rivalry with Goldust after defeating him on July 29. They met in a no disqualification match on September 1st, which was won by Sheamus after exchanging victories in the following weeks. Sheamus then began a rivalry with Shelton Benjamin, which had erupted into a final match on October 27th, which Sheamus won.

When Sheamus was transferred to the Raw brand, his rivalry with Benjamin came to an end prematurely. He made his Raw debut on October 26 by defeating Jamie Noble on October 26th. He continued to criticize Noble, causing him to leave, and then on November 16, he assaulted timekeeper and commentator Jerry Lawler, who was angry in the ensuing weeks. Sheamus played on his first WWE pay-per-view tournament, Survivor Series, on November 22nd, when he was part of The Miz's team in a classic five-on-five elimination tag team match. Finlay, a fellow Irishman, was shot and died in the final pinfall to dismiss opposing captain John Morrison, as well as longtime rival Drew McIntyre.

Sheamus defeated a "break-through" battle royal for wrestlers who had never won a world championship to advance to the top contender for John Cena's WWE Championship the next night. Sheamus brought Cena through the table immediately afterward, and Jesse Ventura, the Raw guest host, confirmed it would be a Tables match. Sheamus defeated Cena to win the WWE Championship, his first appearance in WWE, making him the first Irish-born WWE champion. He won the major title in just 166 days after his WWE debut, making it the third fastest to win a championship since his WWE/ECW debut. Sheamus was named the 2009 Breakout Superstar of the Year Slammy Award on Raw the following night. In a rematch against Cena, he will make his first title defense on the final Raw of 2009, having been disqualified.

Sheamus lost the WWE Championship at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in the Elimination Chamber match after being disqualified by Triple H, who did not attend Raw the following night. He attacked Triple H on his return to revenge, bringing a match between Sheamus and WrestleMania XXVI on March 28. Sheamus struck Triple H at the start of the show and then defeated him in a Street Fight at Extreme Rules on April 25th. He continued his assault after the match ended, resulting in Triple H being ruled off television for ten months after a string of kicks to the head.

Sheamus defeated John Cena for the second time and was named the one-hundredth WWE Champion in history on Sunday at Fatal 4-Way pay-per-view, following misuse from The Nexus, who allowed him to pin John Cena. On a day in the Money in the Bank's pay-per-view, he defeated Cena in a steel cage fight to keep the title alive until The Nexus intervened again. He retained the title against Randy Orton at SummerSlam by disqualification on August 15, 2008. Sheamus lost the WWE Championship to Randy Orton on September 19th in a six-pack elimination competition that also included Chris Jericho, Edge, John Cena, and Wade Barrett. Sheamus completed his rematch for the title at Hell in a Cell on October 3rd, but Orton defeated him in a Cell match in a Hell in a Cell match.

After losing a bye in the second round, he bounced back on November 29th with victories over Kofi Kingston and John Morrison to become the 2010 King of the Ring. On Monday, he met Morrison once more as "King Sheamus" at the TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs pay-per-view for a upcoming WWE Championship match, but he lost in a ladder match. In 2011, he began to lose to Morrison in a combination of singles and tag team matches. Triple H returned on February 28th, bringing Sheamus through the announce table in honor of his scripted ten-month absence.
