"He's a great pro wrestler. He's technically very astute and a great performer. But for whatever reason he gets more people coming up to him saying hello because they've seen him on the Divas show then they have seen him wrestling in the ring, which I thought that was pretty amazing."
Barrett also commented on his own goal:
"I want to be champion of the world. There's never been a British world champion before. I think that's a terrible statistic and somebody needs to wipe that out. Hopefully, it's me. I'm going to take it as far as I can. There's certain elements involved in pro wrestling that aren't solely down to the performer. There's only so much I can do. I've kind of stopped beating myself up about things not working out the way I want them to every time."
Barrett also discussed the influence of ECW in the U.K., unionizing pro wrestling, whether there's enough fans to support serious competition for WWE, and NFL players becoming pro wrestlers. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
