Wade Barrett says he wasn’t happy in WWE

Oct 12, 2017 - by Steve Gerweck

“I didn’t really ask to be released. My contract was coming to an end, I’d been there just over nine years at that point – I was not happy with the way my creative had gone and not happy with some stuff behind the scenes, and the way I’d been treated by certain people there, so in my opinion it was time to move on and do something else, at least for a while. I’d been offered a new contract by them, I didn’t want to sign; I told them, I was upfront with them. I don’t think they were thrilled about it but there’s not a lot you can do – I felt that I was wasting my time there. There’s a lot of guys who are not happy with their lot there, I wasn’t happy with my lot there for several years but always believed I was capable of getting to the next level through my work or through my performances, and my ability to get over. It got to the point where I didn’t believe I was getting the opportunities to get to the level that I wanted to and I think once I’d seen the writing on the wall from that perspective, it was a very easy decision for me to leave and I’m guessing it was the same for guys like Ryback, guys like Del Rio, guys like Cody, who perhaps, like me, decided it was best to move on too.”

    He was there nine years? Felt like 20 minutes….the most boring, dull. 20 minutes one could stand.

    Wade was awesome when he had the bad news gimmick but all the other ones were boring. They count development also.

  3. Uncle Jasper says:

    The Bad News gimmick could have been good…but yeah when they say 9 years….wow….seems like a waste of 9 years.

    He didn’t get it that badly, he was a 5- time Intercontinental Champion.

  5. Billy Rouse says:

    He compares himself to Del Rio?! Del Rio was a World Champion! Wade was good, but he didn’t have the gimmick to go to world title reigns.
