“Every indy show I do, it’s so much different [than] what I did for the past five years in WWE, it’s an opportunity to do whatever I want and have fun most of all,” said Barreta. “[Because] for five years I wasn’t getting to just have fun. And I’m just really having a blast now, so I just look forward to every match.”
