Bad News Barrett: 'I'm Going To Be The Bloody King Of WWE'
Barrett has some Bad News for any other WWE stars reckoning they're in with a chance of winning King of the Ring...
Bad News Barrett intends to follow in the footsteps of fellow Brit William Regal and win WWE's King of the Ring tournament.
Preston-born star Barrett advanced to the semi-finals after beating Dolph Ziggler on Raw last night - and he reckons he is the heir apparent for the role.
“I’m the only man capable of winning this tournament because I’m the only man with the class and the excellence to do so,” Barrett commented after his win.

“I will be the ruler, I will be the bloody King!”
Barrett faces R Truth in the semi-finals, set to air on the WWE Network tonight - but he's not the only Brit left in the hunt to be crowned WWE's King.
A regal stretch crowned me King of the Ring in 2008. So very interested in seeing who will emerge as my successor, maybe @WWENeville?

High-flying Geordie Neville is also in the last four, having defeated Luke Harper on Raw.
He faces Irish star Sheamus, the most recent winner of the lapsed tournament in 2010, for a spot in the final.
Previous winners to have taken the throne include Macho Man Randy Savage, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Brock Lesnar.
