Halifax, Nova Scotia native Liam O’Brien was the biggest surprise of Capitals training camp this season. The scrappy fourth-line forward received a jersey on opening night and managed to play in 13 NHL games for the team through the season’s first two months. He even scored his first NHL goal and became beloved by fans for wagging his tongue. While his fairytale story has been compelling I’ve been fascinated with something different entirely: O’Brien’s resemblance to two-time WWE champion, Sheamus (see here, here, and here).
O’Brien must have seen this because he dressed up like the “The Celtic Warrior” over the weekend in Hershey. Goodness, this is the most amazing hockey/wrestling-themed thing I’ve ever seen.

Let’s take it a step further because that is what we do here.
With the help of Amanda Bowen, here’s O’Brien’s new WWE entrance.
We actually managed to mine some old footage of Liam in the ring too.
