Speaking to Battle & Eli on Battleground, Barnett was asked if he'd welcome Claudio at Bloodsport or a return to AEW.

"Yeah, yes to both. A pro wrestler’s job is to show up wherever the ring is, whatever the rules are, and go to war. So if I’m being invited to go compete in AEW, I’m there. If they’re up to stepping into the Bloodsport ring, then let’s go. I’m not here to try and swim the waters carefully, taking breaks, hiding behind a rock. I’m here to go right into the ocean. If the sharks are there, come take a bite," he said.

Elsewhere during the interview, Barnett commented on working with WWE to allow Shayna Baszler to compete at Bloodsport X. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
