In the WWE, Wade Barrett is infamous for his bad news, but now he’s saying he’s looking for a little bit of good news for himself, and would love a shot at challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE title.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, some believe it’s possible that Brock Lesnar’s beating of John Cena represents a “changing of the guard,” and there’s talk of WWE losing the Face of the WWE if Cena doesn’t take a break soon.
While bad news Barrett is used to handing out the ill tidings to other wrestlers, this summer he suffered an injury that sidelined him and took away his status as intercontinental champion. However, Wade went all British when he discussed the injury, saying it wasn’t bad but unfortunate how he separated his shoulder during a barricade spot in a match with Jack Swagger on WWE Smackdown.
“I think with me and the injury, it was kind of an unfortunate situation,” Barrett said. “We can do that 100 more times, and it wouldn’t have happened. Sometimes you have this element of bad luck. It would be a struggle to go out and not give a 100 percent, especially when you have the loud crowd behind you and the adrenaline pumping. I would find it hard to step back and do things a little different. Maybe it’s something I need to look at with a bit more maturity. However, with this particular injury, I think it was just a case of bad luck.”
Back in character, it’s now all bad again. Or good, rather. According to the Miami Herald, Barrett has been busy lifting weights in the gym again and he’s working his rehab hard so he can return to the ring posthaste. He misses the fans of the WWE universe, and once he’s back, he wants to set himself a new high goal.
“There is never really a good time to get injured. I felt like I was in the middle of a good run. I had some good matches, and people were enjoying what I was doing. Obviously, I also had the Intercontinental championship, which was huge in itself. There are elements of this happening that really did suck, but I want to be back and better than ever. I want to push forward. Eventually, I want to win the WWE world heavyweight championship.”
Of course, whether the WWE would push a match of Brock Lesnar Vs. Wade Barrett remains to be seen. The rumor is that the WWE title belt is being held out for the upcoming reign of Roman Reigns, but until then Lesnar will have to defend his title along the road to WrestleMania 31. Randy Orton has been champing at the bits demanding a match, saying he’s “owed” a chance, but otherwise the only match we know for sure is John Cena… and as Barrett might say, the bad news is that Lesnar can count past 16.
