Wade Barret On Possible In-Ring Return
"The only thing I didn't achieve in WWE that I always wanted to achieve was to become the WWE Champion," Barrett said.
"And that title is now held by an old friend of mine, Drew McIntyre. So taking him on for that title is something that certainly might tempt me back for a match or two." Barrett made his debut several years ago at NXT.
He appeared in the first season of NXT. NXT was a reality show at that time. His first year on the WWE main roster was extremely good. He became the leader of the popular heel group called The Nexus and fought popular superstars such as John Cena and Randy Orton.
After Nexus, he became a solo wrestler and was about to win the WWE Intercontinental title 5 times. He also won the 2015 King of The Ring Tournament. Barrett left WWE in 2016. He then became a commentator and an authority figure for various promotions including WCPW, World of Sport, Lucha Underground, and NWA.
Bareet stated that if he was to return, it would be for a very short time. "In truth, if I was to come back as a full-time in-ring guy, I really would be chasing the sunset of my career. I don't think there's that many more years left in me," Barrett said.
Bareet stated that he is a big music fan. He spoke about The Manic Street Preachers. He stated that they actually wanted to record his entrance music for Bareet. "It turned out that the Manics, at that point, were in the combination of writing their new album and they were also doing a tour," Barrett said.
"So, they were very busy at that point and they weren't actually able to dedicate the time to writing the theme music. So, it never actually happened, unfortunately." "If they would allow me to kind of borrow ['Faster'] for my music, that would be very cool," Wade Barrett said.
"And it would be very nice if we could have the match and bring a pay-per-view over to the UK - me against Drew at Wembley Stadium."
