We go to commercial.
We are back and since we are in the United Kingdom, it is time to get some tips from a native, Layla El.
She says that the hardest part about moving to the United States was the language. There are some differences.
The police are called ‘Bobbies’ in England.
The subway is called ‘The Underground’ or ‘Tube’.
An elevator is a ‘lift’.
The bathroom is a ‘loo’.
A number of wrestlers have come from the United Kingdom and it is a time to take a look at some in the Video Vault.
The first man is William Regal. He is a multi time champion, WWE Commissioner, and King of the Ring.
Next is Davey Boy Smith, the British Bulldog. He was trained in the Hart Dungeon and was one of the top Intercontinental Champion of all time.
Paul Burchill was another wrestler from the United Kingdom.
Finally, the leader of the Barrett Barrage, Wade Barrett.
We go into the Saturday Morning Spotlight to look at Wade Barrett. The grim realities of life smack you in the face where he comes from. He had enough of not getting his way. His goal was to become a World Champion. He is relentless and remorseless. His barrage will not be stopped.
