NXT/WADE BARRETT: Wade Barrett signs new WWE deal for NXT commentary

Posted on 9/17/120 by Colin Vassallo

With the permanent departure of Mauro Ranallo, an empty spot
needed to be filled on the NXT commentary team. Former
Intercontinental champion Wade Barrett was brought in for a
few weeks on a temporary basis but now, that temporary job
has turned into a new contract.

Sports Illustrated reported that Barrett has now signed a
one-year deal with the company that includes an option to
extend. That deal will see Barrett join the NXT commentary
booth every week.

Speaking to SI, Barrett said he hoped that this partnership
will last for a long time. So there is no bad news to
share, but never forget, there is always a little bad news
up my sleeve, he added, giving a nod to his old Bad News
Barrett gimmick.

Our aim is to be different, a little more unique than the
other WWE programming, Barrett continued. We dont want to
be a carbon copy of what you hear on Raw or SmackDown. Ive
known Beth for years, and she is incredibly talented, and I
am just getting to know Vic. Im excited to learn from and
work with both of them, and Im really excited to develop
this into a really tight unit.

Prior to joining the NXT commentary team, Barrett was part
of the NWA broadcast team on their NWA Power YouTube show.
