Wade Barrett's return to WWE
Wade Barrett is usually known for his initial run with WWE when not only did he lead The Nexus to start with, but the five-time WWE Intercontinental Champion also did brilliant work with multiple gimmicks. Ever since his departure from WWE in 2016, Barrett has barely competed in a pro-wrestling ring. Earlier this year, he replaced Mauro Ranallo on commentary for NXT.
A former King of the Ring winner, Wade Barrett has shared the ring with some of the finest in WWE history. His past opponents include the likes of John Cena, CM Punk, and Sheamus, all of whom are former WWE World Champions.
McIntyre's current focus is on Randy Orton, who once again will be challenging for the WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell. However, the current WWE Champion would surely be open to welcoming Barrett back into the ring.Published 13 Oct 2020, 02:33 IST
