VIDEO: Irish WWE star Sheamus AKA Rocksteady chats '90s cartoons, Fat Frog ice pops and fighting Conor McGregor

A giant ginger gentleman...

Over the past few years, Dublin-born Stephen Farrelly has taken the world by storm in the gargantuan shape of his snow white-tanned, flaming red-haired, Celtic warrior wrestling alter-ego, Sheamus.

Now though, the WWE champion-turned-actor isn't just hitting the big screen in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, the sequel to 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, he's absolutely SMASHING through it as Rocksteady, stealing the show alongside comedian Gary Anthony Williams as Bebop.

Trust us, you really haven't seen the 6 ft 4, fire-headed Irishman quite like this before. He's the good-looking one on the right...

Sheamus was home sweet home for the film's Irish Premiere and ahead of his hometown screening in Dublin, we caught up with the wrestling star and friend of JOE to chat about making one of our favourite cartoon's most iconic villains Irish, how tasty ice pops fit into his strict spandex-stretching diet and we find out if he's ever going to kick some ass against The Notorious, Conor McGregor.

Oh, and as a bonus, we even got to poke his massive muscle.

Sheamus muscle

Lucky us.
