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.”

It is never the wisest of ideas to try and pin down one of the biggest men in the WWE – but Wade Barrett will happily take a three-count if it means talking about Preston North End.

The wrestling superstar is a lifelong fan of the Lilywhites having been born in nearby Penwortham and began his support for the club at the age of five when his dad started taking him to Deepdale.

And even though he joined the WWE in 2007 Wade’s passion remains un-dimmed, even though he’s not had chance to get to a game for some time.

“It is difficult [to follow the games and news] because we are on the road a lot so I try to keep up to speed while travelling, and my dad keeps me updated too,” he told football-league.co.uk.

“Unfortunately we do not get enough time off as WWE is on for 52 weeks of the year so it has been several years since I last got to a game.”

- WWE Superstar Wade Barrett spoke with NaplesNews.com to promote WWE’s TLC pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:

Becoming WWE Champion:
“I’ve dreamed about it since I was a kid. I realized, statistically, the chances of me getting to the WWE and being very successful were very slim. I always hoped it would happen for me. I was very lucky to get the opportunity and I was going to make sure I was going to make the most of it. Wrestling was my first passion and something I wanted to do from a very young age.”

Going from main events to the mid-card:
“Wrestling is quite cyclical in its nature. If you have the same guys at the top of the card all the time, people get bored of it. They don’t want to see the same guys wrestling over and over again. I had a bit of a lull, but it allowed other guys to move up to the spot I had. The feud with Orton propelled me to the top of the card again. Things have been going very well for me. I didn’t take it personally when I moved down the card. People have to move up and down to keep things fresh. That’s the nature of the business.”
