After appearing for the first time on RAW a couple of weeks ago on episode 59 of Universe Mode Bad News Barrett has officially landed a spot on the RAW roster on a full-time basis after Smackdown General Manager decided to make the trade with the RAW Management team. In exchange for Bad News Barrett, Smackdown received the tag team of Gold & Stardust who join the Smackdown roster to help boost the division dominated by tag champions The Usos.
Bad News Barrett was a long time serving member of the Smackdown roster, a member of the inaugural roster from two years ago. Barrett won the Intercontinental Championship two times and is the longest reigning intercontinental champion in Smackdown history with a title reign that spanned 28 weeks. Barrett also challenged the Undertaker at last years Summerslam for the World Heavyweight Championship. Barrett will now join a plethora of up and coming rising stars on Monday Night RAW and will have the opportunity to become one of the top contenders for the United States Championship in the up and coming weeks.
How will this shake up both rosters? We’ll find out in the next few episodes of WWE 2k15 Universe Mode.
