Piotrowski usually competes as Barry Ryte and was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma back a few years ago. He made a full recovery and returned to the ring in the spring of 2011. He had the following to say about his WWE experience:
"Yeah, I got my butt whipped, but I got my foot in the door, and I got some good pointers and some good compliments. It was basically a tryout for one of the two spots, and I got picked. William Regal helped work with me to get me ready."
"They told me they liked what they saw, and they said to keep checking their website for future shows where I could be available. One thing they did mention is that I need to be more confident out there. They said that the crowd won't be taken by you if they sense you don't have confidence."
