WWE superstar Wade Barrett, who who has been off television for several weeks now, recently spoke to Neil Docking of Lep.co.uk to promote next month’s WWE Live Events tour of the UK.
During the interview, Barrett revealed that he should have been back on WWE television already, but he’s been stuck in the UK due to issues with his passport. He also addressed rumors that he’ll be returning to WWE with a new gimmick.
Here are some highlights of what Barrett said about:
Why He’s Been In England For The Past Month:
“I’ve been back sorting out a new Visa at the moment, we’ve had a couple of delays on that. I actually went and watched Preston North End a few weeks ago, I went and watched them play away at Walsall and met the manager and the players, which was pretty cool. I’ve been back for about four weeks.”
“I was supposed to be back in the States two weeks ago and I think the Night of Champions pay-per-view I was supposed to be away for, but I also missed Battleground. It’s very difficult for me to do anything at the moment, being without a passport. Fingers crossed it gets cleared up in the next few days.”
Being Disappointed About Not Being On The Main WrestleMania Card:
“Obviously you get a lot of guys coming back from the past, like Chris Jericho, The Rock, Brock Lesnar, Triple H and The Undertaker, so the spots on the card tend to fill up very quickly when you’ve got guys like that who aren’t normally around on the show come back and take spots on the card. For me personally that is very disappointing that I missed out on that, but it just kind of fuels me more to make sure I’m on next year’s show.”
Ongoing Changes To His Character:
“I think I’m always looking to change and develop and I think you’ve got to do that just to keep fans interested, because they can kind of get pretty bored of the same thing over and over again. There’s not many people who can really get away with not evolving and changing and giving different things constantly.”
