Wade Barrett Speaks On Survivor Series, Wasteland, Fighting



Nexus leader Wade Barrett was interviewed this week by IGN to promote Sunday’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view. You can read the full interview at IGN.com. Here are some highlights of what Barrett said about:

His Experience As A Bare Knuckle Boxer In The UK:

“Yeah, that’s something I started doing in my early 20′s. I used to live in Liverpool and I knew some people who were involved in that world. They made me an offer to do some fighting for them. It was something that wasn’t strictly legal. It was something that was under the cover of darkness, as it were. But it was something that I enjoyed at the time and I made some decent money out of it and it was something that I was quite successful at. So I enjoyed doing it.”

Who Taught Him His “Wasteland” Finishing Move:

“That was something that was actually taught to me by a wrestler on the independent scene named Colt Cabana. He showed me that a few years ago and it was a move that I’d never seen used before.”

“Apparently it gets used a bit in Mexican wrestling circles, but it wasn’t one that I was familiar with. I liked it because it was different and it was a move that I could use on the vast majority of people in a lot of different circumstances and in a lot of different areas in the ring. I could pull the move off from almost anywhere. So it was a versatile move that I thought looked good.”

His WWE Title Match Against Randy Orton at Survivor Series:

“This time I’m going to be on my own against Randy Orton with John Cena as the referee, and it’s a huge moment for me and it really shows how much I’ve come in the last year, considering one year ago I was wrestling in developmental for FCW and I wasn’t on TV or anything like that,” said Barrett. “And now, less than a year later, I’m Main Eventing one of the top pay-per-views of the year. It’s a big honor and I’m very proud of it.”
