Wade Barrett On Pressure In WWE, Working With CM Punk On TV Series

Wade Barrett spoke with TV Insider to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.

WWE run:

“When I was in WWE I went from being a complete nobody to a main event guy in 2010. I was battling all the top stars like John Cena and Randy Orton. People asked me then if I felt the pressure of being in the top spot. Did I feel the pressure of everyone watching what I was doing? The true answer is no. The pressure I felt in my wrestling career was when I was the guy who wasn’t known and had to try and build a name for myself and build a career for myself.”

Hosting Ultimate Beastmaster and CM Punk:

“You imagine Ninja Warrior being the obstacle course challenge show. Now imagine it with a few extra bells and whistles. They have me come in and host the British team. I enjoyed that. The cool thing about it is also CM Punk being one of the U.S. hosts. You get to see us interact on camera again. It was good to see him. I haven’t seen him in a few years. He is doing great for himself and seems to be enjoying his life away from WWE. I was happy to reconnect with him and see what he is doing.”
