Last week when Wade Barrett and other WWE Superstars traveled to Fort Bragg for Tribute to the Troops, an article was written up on the official Army website about the WWE’s visit. Barrett is quoted numerous times in the article, including here where he speaks on the excitement of trying out combat skills -
“We are out here for our annual ‘Tribute to the Troops’ show,” said Wade Barrett, a WWE Superstar. “At the WWE, we like to support the U.S. troops in all our endeavors around the world.”
Besides signing autographs and taking pictures, the Superstars and Divas also had a chance to try their hand at some Army training during their visit.
“It was a lot of fun throwing the live hand grenade,” Barrett said. “I was amazed of the size of the grenade versus the size of the explosion. I didn’t think something that small could create an explosion that big. It was definitely a lot of fun, and an experience I will keep with me a long time.”
