Bad News Barrett Would Pick Manic Street Preachers Classic For His WWE Theme
Intercontinental champ - who has a Manics tatt - fancies coming out to the ring to 1994 tune Faster...
Manic Street Preachers devotee Bad News Barrett has restated his love for the Welsh rockers during a WWE Twitter Q&A.
Bad News - who has a tattoo of the Manics lyric ‘Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair’ from 1992 single Little Baby Nothing – revealed he’d select Faster from 1994 album The Holy Bible as his entrance theme, given the choice of any of the band’s singles to soundtrack his march to the ring.
Frontman James Dean Bradfield previously told Q magazine the band would be up for recording Barrett’s signature theme.
"Let's just put this out there - if you're listening Wade Barrett, we will do your f**king theme tune - just get in touch,” he said during the 2012 interview.
Intercontinental champ Barrett, 34, also revealed NXT superstar and Jumping Geordie Adrian Neville would be his ideal pick as a tag team partner during the social media quizzing session – and a couple of surprising names came up when he was asked who he shares footy bants with.
“Sheamus, Neville, Cesaro, Rusev, and (believe it or not) [Luke] Harper,” he tweeted.
