#5 WWE Champion and RAW Superstar Drew McIntyre teases a feud with Wade Barrett
NXT commentator and former five-time IC Champion Wade Barrett recently took a shot at RAW's WWE Champion Drew McIntyre during an interview. The former Nexus leader said that he used to bully Drew McIntyre and that the WWE Champion is scared of him.
Here is what Wade Barret said:
"I used to bully him. Kick the hell out of him. Pour cans of beans over him. He'd be in the corner crying, begging for mercy. As a man, he knows I can destroy him anytime. He knows I can batter him"
In response, Drew McIntyre called Barrett 'grandpa' saying that he should keep behind his commentary desk.
Reports suggested that Wade Barrett has signed a deal with WWE, where he will primarily be a commentator on NXT but has a few matches as part of the contract.
The back and forth between the two Superstars has given rise to speculation of a possible match between the two men soon. Wade Barrett was primed to be the first English WWE Champion, but those plans did not take off and it was Drew McIntyre who became the first UK-born WWE Champion.
