Wade Barrett debuted his “Bad News Barrett” character on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. From a podium, similar to what Michael Cole used as the voice of the Anonymous Raw General Manager, Barrett hosted the segment, where the company flashed the hashtag #BadNewsBarrett.
In the segment, Barrett said he had some good news and bad news. The good news was they were live on Raw. The bad news they were stuck in an arena full of hillbillies and overweight miscreants who had to name their city after their state just so they could remember it.
Barrett debuted the character on The JBL & Cole Show as you can watch it in action at this link.
Barrett has been off shows in the United States recently due to work visa issues. As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, those issues are now sorted.
