However, Big E has taken to Twitter to add even more feul to the fire for the two teams feud:
I met Sheamus in 2009. I was 23 & he was significantly older. Although he was on the main roster, he used to come down to FCW to bully the new kids & hear the boys tell him how great he is. In those days, it violated wrestling etiquette to swing on him. Etiquette be damned.

Big E insinuated that Sheamus was a bully when he’d come visit FCW as a big-time WWE superstar. Sheamus didn’t take the tweet lightly and offered a response:
In this fairytale I see you scribing this tweet a with quill, wearing a smoking jacket, and surrounded by many leather bound books. Any more from Big E’s BS Stories of Yore? https://t.co/gBGAWGmpDw

As if these two teams needed new reasons to dislike each other, Big E will have his chance to “swing on” Sheamus tonight. Tune in to Smackdown Live tonight to see if Big E topples The Celtic Warrior.
