The message, coupled with him changing his display name to his real name, got people all hot and bothered that Barrett was finally on his way out of WWE. I admit I fell for the hysteria for a hot second, but then again, several WWE superstars use their shoot names in the display portion while keeping their stage names in the @-handle. A similar hysteria overtook the wrestling world when Ryback changed his display name to Ryan Reeves.Heading home. Not a moment too soon. 🇬🇧⚽️🏉🎥🔫🍺👊🏼— Stu Bennett (@WadeBarrett) August 25, 2015
Anyway, the reason why Barrett went back to the United Kingdom is because he's filming a movie for WWE Studios. So he'll more than likely be back to dispense bad news to Stardust when filming wraps. The Bad News Barrett character was amusing, and it probably had a lot more shelf-life before it was curbed in favor of the King of the Ring stuff, but I thought the Cosmic King thread had more than just two weeks of material to offer. Either way, Barrett's not going anywhere for now.
