Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned former WWE star Wade Barrett will be joining the NXT announce team this week.
Sources tell us this is just a one-shot deal for now and that the former leader of Nexus – who won the first original season of NXT – has not signed a full-time deal to re-join the company.
Barrett aka Stu Bennett was released from WWE in 2016 after telling the company he did not intend to renew his contract once it expired. Since then, he’s focused on his acting career and most recently did announcing for Billy Corgan’s National Wrestling Alliance.
