Call it Six Degrees of Separation from Kevin Nash. WWE’s Celtic Warrior Sheamus has landed the role of Rocksteady, one of Shredder’s powerful but dimwitted henchmen, in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.” The master of the Brogue Kick posted the picture above to his Twitter, with co-stars Gary A Williams, Brian Lee and Mirelly Taylor. Williams will be Rocksteady’s partner in crime Bebop. The pair are an important part of the Ninja Turtle mythos, even killing Donatello in the comic books recently.
Sheamus is in the midst of reinventing his WWE character as a villain too. With the mohawk, when I heard he would be in Ninja Turtles I initially thought he would play Bebop. Knowing WWE, the Ninja Turtles may show up to fight Sheamus at next year’s SummerSlam. As I alluded to earlier, Sheamus isn’t the first WWE superstar to battle the Heroes in a Half-Shell. Kevin Nash portrayed a mutated-version of Shredder in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze.” I love how his armor still fits perfectly.
