Wade Barrett Shoots On The 1st Season of WWE NXT

During an appearance on Corey Graves’ After The Bell podcast, Wade Barrett talked about the 1st season of WWE NXT in 2010:. “I’ll be honest the eight of those who were on that first NXT season one, the entire concept of it. I think universally we hated it. First of all, we were termed as rookies which the vast majority of us on that show had been working in the wrestling biz for at least six years or something at that point. I know you [Corey Graves] did the Indies before you came anywhere near FCW and I know you’re a pretty big deal on the indie scene in the UK at the time.

Wade Barrett Gives High Praise To WWE NXT 2.0 Star

WWE NXT announcer Wade Barrett was asked who has caught his attention in WWE NXT 2.0 during an appearance on Corey Graves’ “After The Bell” podcast. “I think you just need to go back a couple of weeks to NXT WarGames,” Barrett said. “I would say my favorite match of the year in NXT was the men’s WarGames match. I think at this point in my career, I look at things a little differently than I did when I was younger. I look at more of the future of the business and the business work that’s being done. What I really liked about the men’s WarGames match is the victors in that match were the new 2.0 stars, Bron Breakker, Grayson Waller, Carmelo Hayes, and Tony D’Angelo.

Wade Barrett Comments On A Possible Return To The Ring

During an appearance on the After The Bell podcast, WWE NXT announcer Wade Barrett commented on how he enjoys his current role but isn’t ruling out a return to the ring:. “It was always a career goal of mine from way back to be an announcer. I always thought I’d do it one day after I retired. I was lucky enough in 2008 under the tutelage of Dusty Rhodes, who was one of my mentors for Florida Championship Wrestling. I did the commentary for the FCW TV show, the developmental version of WWE back then. I always knew I wanted to be an announcer one day, fortunately this opportunity came up for me at the right time, got a call from Michael Cole, invited me along and it’s been a lot of fun ever since.”
