Bad News Barrett recently spoke with SportsKeeda.com while doing promotional work for WWE in India. Below are some highlights:
You have been out of action for quite a long time now with your shoulder injury. When can we expect you to be in the ring?
Yes, I have been out for a while. I’m going through my recovery phase right now. It has been great, I’m feeling great. I will be back probably by December, with WWE doing their European tour this winter.
Upon your return, will you be aiming to regain your Intercontinental title back?
Definitely. Since I didn’t really lose the title, and was stripped off from it. I hope I’ll come back and beat him up, cos’ nobody likes the Miz. Everyone wants to beat Miz up. But, Dolph has it now, Dolph Ziggler. He is another guy who I think is a very talented performer; had some good matches with him in the past. And, if he is still the champion when I come back, I’ll go straight for him. I enjoy wrestling him, but I want my title back.
And, what about Jack Swagger, the guy who injured you?
Jack Swagger, he is a good guy himself. I don’t really blame him for the injury, I’ve been asked that before. It is just one of those things. And, unfortunately, you can get two guys, very experienced, like Jack Swagger and myself, and sometimes things go wrong, and that’s exactly what happened with regards to my injuries. I don’t blame him, but if I do get a chance I’m gonna hit him right away, just to be on the safer side.
Bad News Barrett or Wade Barrett?
Bad News Barrett. There you go that is the future. I mean Wade Barrett, I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved in the past, but right now, I’m performing as Bad News Barrett, that’s my name, that’s how I’m in the video game, and that is what my pictures says. So, yeah Bad News Barrett, that’s my favourite right now.
