Former WWE Star Wade Barrett also known as Stu Bennett has some BAD NEWS! for the fans who think that he will be heading into AEW to wrestle.
In a recent interview to promote his new movie, Barrett spoke on when he was asked on, Cody’s comment saying that Barrett will be a champion at some point in his career, Barrett replied, “Part of my issue is that I’m close to 40 now. I’m 40 in two months, so the prospect of going back and working a full-time professional wrestling schedule isn’t particularly high on my agenda at the moment. That might change. It was very kind of Cody to say that, I’m still very good friends with Cody, We’ve been tight for ten plus years, and he’s done an amazing job with AEW.”
Barrett also said that the landscape of wrestling has changed since WWE was the only game in town but not anymore, other promotion like ROH, Impact Wrestling, and others in Japan and UK is up with their game now.
