Bad News Barrett was recently interviewed by Sportskeeda.com. He had plenty to talk about, including his time in Nexus, his injury and Sting. Below are some of his comments.
His injury and when he will return:
“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.”
On if he thinks Sting will be in a WWE ring:
“Who knows? I’ve never actually met Sting, I’ve never seen him backstage in WWE or anything like that, and I don’t know what his plans are. I’ve heard rumours that he wants to have one last match, and he wants it to be in the WWE. I think it is almost inevitable that this is going to happen at some point. Who his opponent will be, I’ve no idea though. It would need to be a big, big match. I am a fan of his.”
“It is great we got him in the video game this year, and I know if you pre-order the game, you actually get a free downloadable version of Sting’s. I think there is two versions of Sting: one where he was face painted with the dark hair and the leather jacket, and there is one early in his career when he had the blond hair. So, it is cool that you can get both of those if you pre-order the game. But, yeah I think we might get to see him in the wrestling ring very soon in the WWE.”
On his time in Nexus:
“I think Nexus is one of the favourite periods of my career, and I think we had a lot of success, and I think people responded to it really well. The WWE Universe loved it. I hope in some point of the future we can bring something like that. I don’t like the way it ended, and maybe in some point, I’ll need some help with the WWE Heavyweight Championship, I’ll make a few phone calls, and see if I can get those guys back together.”
