King Barrett says he will batter Roy Keane

As we all know, King Barrett isn't one to back down from a fight, and neither is Roy Keane.

The WWE Superstar heard about the Irishman's comments on Wednesday night on ITV Sport about Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's involvement in the WWE a couple of weeks ago.

Rooney was involved in a little bust up with Barrett, and decided to slap him, but Keane commented that he should never have been there in the first place saying, according to the Irish Post: “Why is he getting involved in all that nonsense?” referring to the WWE.

The King of Bad News, who isn't afraid of a fight, decided to issue a response on Twitter to Keane's comments by saying: "If Roy Keane's looking for a piece, I'll batter him too."

Could a potential tag team of Keane and Rooney vs Barrett and Sheamus be set up in the next couple of months? Highly unlikely, but it's good to see Barrett's character is starting to get some mainstream attention, which could lead to title opportunities in the WWE.

Barrett hasn't held a championship now since the start of the year and even then that was only the Intercontinental Championship, which he has won five times. He hasn't held another title in the WWE, and no, sadly, King of the Ring isn't really a title as it has lost its credibility. It seems more of a mid-card gimmick and that is what Barrett is solidified as now.

It's sad to say, but The Bare Knuckle Brawler's time may have come and gone already. The main event scene seemed to have closed on him once The Nexus gimmick was over, and he hasn't been given a chance to hold any other title other than the Intercontinental Championship since.

He has recently sided with The Authority which could bring him some more attention, alongside the online altercation with Roy Keane, but it just looks like he is forever going to be a mid-card heel which is a shame, and he doesn't look like he is in line for a push anytime soon.
