Bad News Barrett on current WWE run, Jim Ross in Chicago

Wade Barrett talks current push, realism on “Total Divas”

Chuck Carroll passed this along.

Wanted to pass along an interview I did with Bad News Barrett for 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C.

We talked about ECW’s influence in the U.K. during the height of pro wrestling’s popularity.

I also asked him about where his current push is going. Is he the next man up with CM Punk gone and Daniel Bryan out with injury?

He also stated he wants to become the first British World Champion and that it’s long overdue somebody from there holds the title. To that note, Barrett talked about how he feels about his recent success given the setbacks he’s had earlier in his career.

Perhaps most interesting, I asked him about how much reality there actually is in WWE’s reality show, Total Divas. From what he’s heard, it’s more than you’d think. He also had a funny story about Tyson Kidd in there.
