Wade Barrett to make shock RETURN to WWE on NXT as special guest commentator

ENGLISH wrestling star Wade Barrett is returning to WWE tonight.

The 40-year-old, real name Stu Bennett, has not appeared for Vince McMahon’s company since his 2016 release.

Now Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin says the man famed for his deliverance of "Bad News" he will be back on-screen for the latest episode of NXT.

Barrett will reportedly be a special guest commentator in what looks like a one-off deal. 

The Lancashire-born grappler is not believed to have penned a contract to return full-time.

The five-time Intercontinental Champion was let go by WWE shortly after WrestleMania 32.

Despite being the leader of the League of Nations, his stablemates turned on him and delivered a vicious beatdown as he was written out of WWE storylines.

That came after he had informed McMahon he would not be committing his future to the company.
