Study, for a moment, the expansive shoulders pictured above. If the carrot-orange hair isn’t a giveaway, that broad back belongs to World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, and that photo was taken shortly after he defeated Triple H in a Street Fight at WWE’s Extreme Rules 2010.

You can begin to see the welts on his skin. Now scars, they are among The Celtic Warrior’s many takeaways – some physical, some symbolic – from that match.

Ahead of Sheamus’ 2-out-of-3 Falls Match against Daniel Bryan at this year’s Extreme Rules, WWE.com caught up with the World Heavyweight Champion in the first edition of “Remember When,” a new feature that details legendary pay-per-view matches that can be viewed, in their entirety, on WWE.com. In this “Remember When” debut, Sheamus discusses the significance of his Street Fight with The Game – a modern classic that ended with The Celtic Warrior standing tall and Triple H out of action for close to 10 months.

The Extreme Rules event is accustomed to all things carnage, but even by the hardcore holiday’s stiff standards, the Sheamus-Triple H brawl of 2010 ranks among the most savage. The reason: Sheamus’ “do or die” mentality.

“I had to make sure I took him out, otherwise I might not be standing here now,” Sheamus said, while on tour this week in Europe. “If not for that situation I might have become a lost, forgotten Superstar like so many others.”
