Football News

WWE is currently dealing with the fallout of a fairly eventful Night of Champions PPV which saw titles change hands, a failed Money in the Bank cash-in and the return of the Demon Kane.

Kane has returned and instantly targeted WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins in a feud that has been a long time in the making.

Another one coming back

Returns are becoming a fairly common thing in the WWE these days with several of their stars disappearing to film new projects.

Dean Ambrose, The Miz and Big Show have all had time away in recent months in order to film their new projects and all have now returned to the ring.

A superstar who was absent from WWE programming is the 2015 King of the Ring, King Barrett who hadn't been seen since the night after Summer Slam.

The former leader of the Nexus and a former Intercontinental Champion had been rumoured to return to the WWE any time soon.

Barrett has been away while filming a new project away from the WWE and with the film being shot in Barrett's home country of Britain, he may have taken a bit more time than expected for some personal time away.

However King Barrett is now back, and he picked a very interesting target.

Barrett's attack on Stardust raises one big question, will he be a heel or a face superstar now that the King has returned?

Expected change

Barrett had been sporting the King Barrett gimmick prior to his departure but there had been rumours for a while that he could be set to return to an earlier gimmick.

Prior to winning the King of the Ring tournament earlier this year, Barrett had been known as Bad News Barrett - a gimmick that was very popular with the WWE Universe.

That was however, the very reason that the WWE forced him to drop it as they felt that as a heel superstar, he shouldn't be so popular.
