UPDATE: Wade Barrett posted the following to his Twitter account, noting that he has flown back to America. As we exclusively reported late last week, his work visa issues have been resolved.
It's all gone a bit Pete Tong on this flight back from Europe. Tornado diversion. Only in America.

ORIGINAL WWE Superstar Wade Barrett met with Preston North End striker Kevin Davies this past week. Their meeting will air on Match Of The Day Kickabout this Saturday, November 16th at 7:45 a.m. on CBBC in the U.K
For what it’s worth, Barrett claims to have his Visa issues resolved but has yet to return to the United States. Barrett told WZROnline.com the following earlier today, “Visa problems were resolved 4 weeks ago.”
On October 16, 2013, Barrett said the following regarding his Visa issues: “I’ve been back sorting out a new Visa at the moment, we’ve had a couple of delays on that. I actually went and watched Preston North End a few weeks ago, I went and watched them play away at Walsall and met the manager and the players, which was pretty cool. I’ve been back for about four weeks. I was supposed to be back in the States two weeks ago and I think the Night of Champions pay-per-view I was supposed to be away for, but I also missed Battleground. It’s very difficult for me to do anything at the moment, being without a passport. Fingers crossed it gets cleared up in the next few days.”
