King Barrett Speaks Out On Trying To Make His "King" Gimmick Work

The Straits Times recently spoke with WWE Superstar King Barrett. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On coming a long way from being the leader of the Nexus to being King of the Ring, and what’s next for him: “I’ve always said I wanted to be the WWE World Heavyweight champion so that’s my ultimate goal. My biggest focus right now is to enjoy my wrestling, enjoy as much as I can being a WWE superstar. It doesn’t last forever and be it through injury or retirement or getting fired, one day it’s going to end so at the moment, I’m really trying to enjoy it as much as I can. I’m enjoying the experience and coming to great places like Singapore. It’s my first trip here. I’m going to check out Orchard Road and some malls.”

On how difficult it is to get the King of the Ring gimmick to work for him, as it’s worked for some in the past and not others: “It depends on the opportunities afforded to me by our writing team. So far, I feel I haven’t been the focus of the show but hopefully, that’s going to change in the next few weeks or months. Hopefully, I get some solid storylines so that I can show what I can do.”
