bad news barrettWhile on tour with WWE in India this week, injured superstar Bad News Barrett did an interview with DNA India, and the following are some interview highlights:

Who are his current favorite WWE stars?:

“I am a huge fan of Ryback, he’s a big dude and a good friend. I think Bray Wyatt is one of the most exciting guys I have seen in a long time, he’s very different and very innovative, great character. When he is on the mic people really listen, they can’t get enough of him. Another guy who’s gonna be huge over the next few years is Roman Reigns. He is a big guy, he has amazing ability, he’s a great athlete. He’s smart, very well spoken and has the look. All the girls like him too. So I think he will be a big superstar, a top star one day.”

On John Cena getting booed:

“He has been the face for ten years, and he’s really good at what he does. But everyone knows that I don’t like John Cena, and he doesn’t like me either. You’re right, he does get booed by a lot of fans, lot of people don’t like him. But he sells a lot more t-shirts and other merchandise than anyone else. So there are a lot of people out there who like him too. Either way everyone has an opinion about him, I respect that. Personally I don’t like him and he doesn’t like me, we are not friends.”

On the Attitude Era vs. Today’s WWE product:

“When I started watching WWE back in the late 1980s and early 90s, it was much more family oriented. It’s a good thing because during the Attitude Era we lost a lot of fans because parents wouldn’t let their kids watch those things. It wasn’t good for eight or nine year olds. The product now is much better in that way because everyone from the kids to the adults to their grandfathers and grandmothers can watch the show. It’s a lot more wholesome. I don’t think we will ever be going back to the Attitude Era.”
