Wade Barrett On Possible In-Ring Return To Wrestling

Wade Barrett On Possible In-Ring Return To Wrestling

Former Intercontinental champion and WWE star Wade Barrett was a guest on Sam Roberts Wrestling podcast where he discussed an array of topics including a possible return to the square circle. Catch the highlights below (transcript courtesy of Wrestling Inc):

Barrett on pursuing acting:

“Absolutely it was a risk,” Barrett said. “I mean, it was a risk I needed to take. I hate to portray this as being a guy who wanted to leave WWE and go act in some movies and take it in that direction, but that absolutely wasn’t my plan. I left WWE because I was utterly miserable wrestling at the time and I needed to get away from the business.”

Barrett on possible in-ring return:

“I think one of the things that happened to me in the last couple of years in the WWE where I realized how unhappy I was in that environment, was that I realized that I needed variety and balance in my life,” stated Barrett. “I shouldn’t say never, but at this time a full-time wrestler with nothing else going on just doesn’t appeal to me. I like having the balance in my life. I like being outside doing other things like hosting a show on Netflix, or shooting a movie, and then I am going to go do a little wrestling commentary or this sort of thing, and then I am going to go spend a week in Greece with my girlfriend, which I had just come back from. These things were not available for me while I was working for WWE on a full-time schedule and would never be available as you work full-time with WWE.

“So, the older I got the more I started to appreciate balance and variety in my life and once you get a taste of that returning and realize how happy it can make you it is very difficult to conceive giving that up again.”
