The Independent in the UK is featuring an interview with WWE star Sheamus talking about the current European tour and why he feels WWE bringing WrestleMania to London would top the NFL holding games in the city this year.

“I think WrestleMania would be bigger than the NFL, way bigger. I think NFL is a great sport, it’s a fun sport but let’s be honest, football is number one. It’s the number one sport in the world. I think when you compare NFL to WWE there’s no comparison, WWE would blow it out of the water. I think NFL is cool because they come over once a year or whatever and I think people are intrigued by what it’s about, but we come over here twice a year, sell-out arenas all over the country. That’s consistency, and I’m pretty sure we could come four times a year and sell-out all over the country. The NFL thing is cool but I think WrestleMania would be 100-times bigger than the SuperBowl. I think you’d really see what sports entertainment is really all about and I’d guarantee we’d fill that stadium across the way there. It’d be unbelievable.”
