Barrett looking to shake up WWE TV run

By James Caldwell, PWTorch assistant editor


King Barrett’s singles run in WWE has been filled with five years worth of ups-and-downs. Now, the 2015 King of the Ring winner is looking to … tag team wrestling.

“I’ve always feel like I play off people well and I was hoping the run with Stardust might last a little bit longer,” Barrett told the U.K. Sun in a new interview.

“But going back, I know there’s a few guys that are kind of in the doldrums at the moment career-wise so maybe pairing up with someone new and trying to go in a completely different direction to what I’ve done before is the next step for me.”

Barrett paired up with Mr. MITB Sheamus on this week’s Raw episode. It’s unclear if that will be a long-term pairing. However, Barrett wants to try something new.

“Pretty much consistently since I’ve been with WWE since 2010 I’ve been the bad guy singles wrestler so I would like to do something a little different,” Barrett said.

“I would really like to go into the tag division. It isn’t something I’ve done very much in the past.”
