Stay in school. Do not do drugs. Do not bully.
They all are familiar messages directed at high school students these days, but it is not every day that they get to hear those words from a muscle-bound Irish wrestling superstar with flaming red hair.
On Thursday, at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, students cheered and roared as Stephen Farrelly, also known as "Sheamus," entered the Kean gym for a special appearance.
Sheamus debuted with World Wrestling Entertainment in 2006, after twice capturing the Irish Whip Wrestling International Heavyweight Championship. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Sheamus worked as a bodyguard for two members of the band U2 and was an IT technician before becoming a professional wrestler.
Since signing on with World Wrestling Entertainment, he has starred in cable and pay-per-view broadcasts for three WWE brands, ECW, Raw and Smackdown. In 2010, Sheamus won the King of the Ring, and in March 2011, he captured the illustrious United States Championship, televised in the pay-per-view series Smackdown.
In April 2012, he was crowned the World Heavyweight Champion.
"I was bullied when I was a little kid, so I try to teach kids that if they are being bullied, they need to come forward," he said. "Lots of times, kids who are being bullied feel ashamed. They think it's a problem with them, when it's actually a problem with the bully.
"Also, with social media, now for them it never stops," he said. "It used to stop when the kids go home, but now it's all the time, so I try to teach them that this kind of behavior on Facebook can have really negative consequences for kids."
