Wade Barrett permanently joins the NXT announce team

This felt like little more than a technicality after we learned of Mauro Ranallo’s departure, but WWE and Wade Barrett went ahead and made it official today (Sept. 16).

Sports Illustrated broke the news - the former Intercontinental champion inked a one-year deal to become a fixture (along with Vic Joseph & Beth Phoenix) on NXT’s announce team.

The best part? Wade is jumping right into kayfabe with two feet. Check out who negotiated his new deal!

No bad news here!

We’ll see if this is one of General Manager William Regal’s MAJOR announcements when tonight’s show starts in a little more than an hour. Follow along with us in our live blog here.
