- WWE's website has a interview up with Wade Barrett talking about his elbow finisher - The Souvenir. Barrett says he used the move back during his bare-knuckle fighting days. He added:
"It's a variation of a knockout blow. In bare-knuckle fighting, you're always looking to disable your opponent as quickly as possible. I have gone back to my roots as a fighter and it was something I wanted to bring into my arsenal. Wasteland and the Winds of Change are still there in my arsenal. I just think people are more intimidated by the prospect of getting an elbow smashed into their temple than the prospect of a slam."
"So I hear @TheBethPhoenix and @NatbyNature had a great match last night #shouldabeenappv #imagineiftheyhad15mins"
