• Wade Barrett Says He Should’ve Been The First British WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre Responds

While speaking to 411 Mania, former WWE Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett said that he’s really happy for Drew McIntyre’s success in WWE.

Below is what Barrett said:

“Just to be clear, I’ve known Drew since I think 2005. I used to wrestle together with him in the UK. We both got hired by WWE on the same day. We still lived together in developmental.

To this day, we’re very good friends. I congratulated him when he won the championship. We speak regularly. And yeah, still very tight with him. So, I’m thrilled for him, but let’s be honest, Drew McIntyre knows I would kick his a**. If I ever got to come back into a ring with him, I would kick his a**, and he knows that. It’s that simple.”

Barrett then changed his mind and said on Twitter that he should’ve been the first British WWE Champion:

“Actually, I’ve had a re-think and I’ve decided I’m not happy for him after all. In fact, I’m ruddy furious. It should have been me.”

McIntyre then replied to Barrett, while plugging his new movie.

“Don’t be playing the big man on here because you’ve got a movie to promote (I am Vengeance – Retaliation, OUT NOW!!!) I still remember you in tears of joy when I won the big one. If you don’t shut up I’ll start acting and win an Oscar before you as well.”

Barrett then thanked McIntyre for the plug.

“Thanks for the plug, champ. Let me know if you ever need your car(s?) washing.”
