Two months ago, we brought you news of WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins being the world’s biggest Hit The Lights fan. But it turns out he’s not the only pro wrestler with good taste in music: On a recent episode of the WWE Network’s new series Unfiltered With Renee Young, Young welcomed the WWE’s current King Of The Ring, Wade Barrett, and they got into some serious music-nerd talk. First, the two discuss the potential of a full-fledged Oasis reunion, then Young hits Barrett with a hell of a follow-up, challenging him to name his top five Britpop bands. Talk about a loaded question! Barrett’s list is as follows:

  1. New Order
  2. Joy Division
  3. Happy Mondays
  4. The Stone Roses
  5. Manic Street Preachers

(That last one shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, as Barrett has a massive Manic Street Preachers tattoo on his right shoulder.)

If you have the WWE Network (and you should, because it rules), you can watch the episode here; if you can’t afford the $9.99 a month, though, you can watch the episode below (the music talk starts at 1:02). Yo, Wade: If you’re reading this, drop a Twitter DM our way and let’s set up an interview, dogg!
