Cape Town – New Jersey news website NJ.com, reporting on World Wrestling Entertainment, has noted that WWE superstar Sheamus used to be a bodyguard to U2's Bono.

Sheamus – The Celtic Warrior – worked at a Dublin pub when he met U2, who were regulars there, according to the report.

"Bono and other members of U2 would frequent a pub in Dublin named Lily's Bordello, where Sheamus was employed."

Sheamus is quoted as saying: "(Bono) came in all the time. It was his favorite spot when he got off tour because he wouldn't get hassled … he was a really cool guy, and took time to say hello to everybody."

At six feet six inches (1.98m), Sheamus is enjoying a top-level run in the WWE, and is the current "King of the Ring".
