APWWE.COM EXCLUSIVE FEATURE : Beyond the Matt Episode 2 : Wade Barrett Returns.
::Matt Striker is seen with a neck brace on, with his forehead a bit sweaty. It appears he is nervous about something.::
Matt Striker : Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to welcome you back to BEYOND THE MATT. I'm your host Matt Striker and we are broadcasting live, exclusively on APWWE.com. Now this show...was created to give APWWE Superstars a place to vent before their big matchups. Last week... ::Striker sighs:: Last week, Episode 1 featured Wade Barrett. It was...it went a bit different then I was hoping. This week we had a poll on APWWE.com to vote for who the next Superstar would be to appear on the broadcast and well...in Episode 2, we already have our first returning guest.
::the camera slowly pans over to see Wade Barrett smirking and looking at the ceiling, nodding his head.::
Wade Barrett : Hello Matt, how are you doing this evening?
Striker : Uhh, frankly Wade, I've been better.
Barrett : GOOD! GREAT! It's great to hear that Matt. Thank you for having me on the broadcast once again.
Striker : ::sheepishly:: Wade, uhh..Mr. Barrett this past week on RAW you defeated two veterans of the ring and long time best friends Edge and Christian, in a triple threat match, which made you the #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title. ::Striker takes a deep breathe before continuing :: Many backstage have said this was done in a very controversial way as you pinned Edge after Christian performed the Killswitch, to knock him out. What are your thoughts?
::Barrett laughs a bit, then pauses::
Barrett : Matt, it's alright. You've got nothing to be scared of. I heard the talk backstage.. I know what the "boys" are saying. But I also heard backstage that Stone Cold drinks too many 'brewskis!' ::Barrett mocks american accent:: and beats his wife. I also heard JBL popped a squat in The Miz's gym bag and the Miz took it as a token of appreciation. Matt, I hear a lot of things the blokes say backstage. Frankly, I'm not here for rumors. I'm here to make a statement. Nobody can hang with me in the ring and as far as I'm concerned, Edge and Christian can bunk off.
Matt Striker : Mr. Barrett, you were voted by the APWWE Universe back on to the second Episode of this broadcast to speak about your up and coming match with the "One Man Rock Band" Heath Slater. Heath and you...you guys have a past. You two were both members of the faction Nexus. What memories do you have of Heath Slater and do you have anything to..offer up to him, as you now are the #1 Contender for his Championship.
Wade Barrett : Actually, if you can believe this..I don't have many memories of Heath Slater. In fact, I'm not even sure the APWWE Universe has memories of Heath Slater. Matt, I think your wrestling career was a more successful campaign then Slater's.
::Matt eyes widened::
Wade Barrett : When I get my rightful shot at Slater's Intercontinental Championship, you best believe I will be victorious! When the referee raises my hand as the winner of the match, it will mean that I am the Intercontinental Champion of the WORLD, Matt! I'm not the APWWE Champion, the Champion of a Wrestling Promotion that means nothing beyond the ingrates in it. I will be the Recognized Champion of the WORLD!
Striker : Well...well, it's good that you are in better spirits this week. I do wish you luck in your up and coming matchup Mr. Barrett. I'm glad we can sort everything out for you. No signs of aggression, which I thank you for!
::Striker cartoonishly wipes the sweat from his forehead::
Barrett : Well, I'm glad we had this discussion and got everything straightened out. You're quite the gentlemen to have me on your show again. I'll be seeing you!
::Barrett walks off camera smiling::
Striker : Well this has been BEYOND THE MATT, I'm your host Matt Striker. Thank you for tuning in, you can tweet me at @Matt..
::Barrett appears quickly from camera left, as he Souvenir Elbows Matt Striker. Striker hits the ground, knocked out cold. Barrett looks down at Matt Striker on the ground, then the camera.::
Barrett: Aggressive? Me, aggressive? I'm not that aggressive at all..
::camera fades to black, ending Episode 2 of BEYOND THE MATT.::
