WWE News: Wade Barrett begins first project since leaving WWE
Looks like former WWE Superstar Wade Barrett, real name Stu Bennett, is enjoying his time after leaving WWE and has found a completely new direction in his career as an entertainer.
Wade who recently started shooting for his upcoming movie "Vengeance: The Film", tweeted the following after completing the first day of his shooting schedule in London:
He is playing the lead character, John Gold. The blurb about his role reads something like this:
"When ex-soldier now mercenary, John Gold, learns that his best friend has been murdered, he sets off to find the killers, only to discover a sinister conspiracy, and he sets about taking down those responsible one by one”
It's notable here that Barrett left WWE back in May this year after being poorly booked by the company for a long time. The argument could be made that it's not entirely the WWE's fault as some of their efforts to reinstate him as a star were curtailed due to his various injuries.
Wade Barrett is mostly known for being the winner of the first season of NXT and then leading the group of fellow NXT participants to form the alliance known as Nexus.
