Put Sheamus in Rudes position back in the day and he probably gets fired. Sheamus isn't on the level Rude was even if it was a mid card level. Put Rude in sheamus's position and he would be doing a lot more than what Sheamus has done, will do and be remember for. I can't believe Sheamus is on this list let alone 'easily beats' Rude. How is that the case? Sheamus has got some impressive victories and has been a world champion but if Rude was in an era were there was 2 world title belts do you guys honestly think he wouldn't be atleast a one time wwe champion. As someone pointed out earlier I can't actually remember Sheamus winning a clean match against someone who is above him in the WWE. All have been gimmick matches or someone has interrupted the opponent. Since there has been one belt Sheamus has been champion once, from a result of a cash in (the whole thing was stupid, even him winning the MITB) and then lost it pretty much as soon as he had to defend it and is now the leader of a team who literally everyone thinks "what the hell are they doing". I haven't watched as many Rude matches as so should have but from what I have seen he is far more entertaining to watch than Sheamus could ever be. Rudes resume doesn't speak for what he actually was.
