While being interviewed by Chris Jericho for a recent episode of his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast, WWE Superstar Sheamus told a story about being offended by Shelton Benjamin during their 2009 feud in WWE.
“I’ve got no problem with Shelton, he’s an amazing athlete. But every time we were sitting down he was calling me rookie. I don’t know what it was. I’d never been anything but nice to him and I just wanted to make the feud good,” said Sheamus during the podcast.
Benjamin, who claims to be unaware of this incident, took to Twitter to offer an apology to the WWE performer.
“If in fact I offended you by repeatedly calling [you] rookie, please accept my sincerest apology. But I personally don’t recall one time,” noted Benjamin on Twitter.
