Former WWE star Wade “Bad News” Barrett is joining the NWA commentary team at the Into The Fire pay-per-view on Saturday, December 14. He’ll use his real name, Stu Bennett.
Bennett will join Joe Galli, replacing Jim Cornette. Cornette departed from the company following his controversial line on the Nov. 19th episode of NWA Powerrr. This week’s Powerrr episode is the final episode with Cornette, as the YouTube description read as follows:
“Lastly, it’s the final episode of the NWA Powerrr called by analyst and pro wrestling legend Jim Cornette. We thank Jim for his support of the National Wrestling Alliance in Season 1, and his over thirty plus years with the organization. His call of the Rock N Roll Express match is an exemplary display of his many talents, and we wish Jim nothing but the best moving forward.”
Bennett left WWE in May 2016 and has been relatively quiet in the pro wrestling world. He worked for Lucha Underground in Nov. 2018 and has done some acting. No word if he’ll wrestle for the NWA.
