Watch WWE's King Barrett Reveal How Film Co-Star 'Knocked Lumps Out Of Him'
WWE tough guy King Barrett has told MTV he was more than happy performing his own stunts in his latest film - even though he was caught with a heavy blow from a martial arts expert co-star.
And although the Brit superstar admitted he was winded by a stray kick from The Expendables 2 and The Bourne Ultimatum actor Scott Adkins, Barrett - taking his film credit under his real name of Stu Bennett - told us: “We’re definitely knocking lumps out of each other in the movie.”
Preston-born Barrett, who has now returned to WWE rings after several weeks' filming in the UK, said: “You’ll see my face right the way through the stunts and the fight scenes. They were 100 per cent done by me.
“I actually took a kick from Scott, he’s kind of a ninja. He does some incredible jiu jitsu and Taekwondo kicks.
“I’m a meat and potatoes puncher and wrestler and he does all these spinning, crazy kicks.
“He caught me with one and I literally couldn’t breathe for fifteen seconds afterwards!
