According to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet, Wade Barrett will be making his return to WWE this coming week for an announcing gig in NXT.
Before you go getting all excited, it is indeed a gig in the sense that it’s a one time deal and he has not signed a contract with WWE for any kind of full time return. He’ll just be joining the NXT announce desk for Wednesday night’s show.
Announcing is what he was last seen doing in pro wrestling, as he did color commentary for the National Wrestling Alliance before that promotion ceased operations due to the coronavirus pandemic. He originally left WWE back in 2016 to focus on his acting career, where he’s garnered a few roles and some acclaim.
Now, he’s back, if only for one night.
But you know how it is in pro wrestling: never say never.
