• Wade Barrett Thinks NXT Wrestler Is A Future WrestleMania Main Eventer
In an interview with WWE India, former Nexus leader Wade Barrett spoke about the new Million Dollar Champion LA Knight (fka Eli Drake in IMPACT Wrestling), who turned on WWF Legend ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase during last week’s episode of NXT.
Here’s what the 2015 WWE King of the Ring had to say about the NXT star:
“So to see such a great, historic, prestigious championship back in the world of NXT is fantastic and for it to be around the waist of LA Knight, to me, is just superb. He is the ideal person to continue the legacy of ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase and he might even go one further.
Ted DiBiase never main evented a WrestleMania, I think LA Knight can certainly do that.”
Barrett is actually wrong here, as Ted DiBiase main evented WrestleMania IV in 1988.
