Sheamus explains why he’d cash in the bank for an Intercontinental title

Sheamus is more interested in the Intercontinental Championship than any other title right now, to the point that he told the Five Count he would cash in Money in the Bank for it. The WWE star was speaking on the channel and talking about the upcoming PPV and his goals if he wins the Money in the Bank briefcase.

“There are several things, but right now I want to do one thing at a time,” he said. “I’m not the kind of person to jump around. But the IC title is number one on the priority list. If I win Money in the Bank, I’ll probably use it to take a hit for the IC title. That’s how much I want this championship to go with everything, every other award I’ve won in WWE.

He went on to explain why, saying, “My goal is to be the first ever Ultimate Grand Slam Champion in WWE. And I’m so close I can taste it. But it’s just having that opportunity. And it’s not — it’s like a carrot hanging in front of me. And I can’t get near it right now. But I’m going to stay focused, keep my priorities there, keep my goals intact. And I hope that one day I will get my hands on it very soon.

Sheamus is yet to qualify for the men’s Money in the Bank match at this time, with only Seth Rollins officially confirmed. The show takes place on July 2 and airs on Peacock and WWE Network.
