Wade Barrett Interview – New Aggressive Wrestling Style, Missing WrestleMania

Promoting tonight’s SmackDown taping at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, Ontario, Wade Barrett addressed his hiatus from the squared circle due to injury, which coincided with WrestleMania XXVIII.

“(Being away from WWE) takes you out of the goldfish bowl and you’re able to look at the aspects of your own work. You can critique yourself,” said Barrett. “There’s a saying that it’s never a good time to get injured. We were four weeks from Wrestlemania. It was very disappointing. It’s a huge relief to get back on TV. I’ve been doing live events for the last four weeks. But it was great to get back under the cameras and bright lights.”

Now that he’s back, fans can look for a more aggressive version of Barrett after his character was depicted as having returning from the underground arena of bare-knuckle fighting.

“I’m going to be doing things to entertain myself. It’s a new style. There’s a lot more brawling, a lot more strikes,” said Barrett. “I’ve always been a fairly physical guy. You just have to look at my nose to see what kind of lifestyle I led … sports and fisticuffs. I’m a contact kind of guy. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I’m pretty laid back and relaxed, but I can get very intense quickly. I think it’s inevitable if you’ve been off the road and injured that you build up anger – things that I have to get out of my system.”
