After calling action on NXT over the past couple of weeks, former Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett has signed a full-time deal with WWE as a commentator for NXT.
Below is what WWE posted about it:
“Wade Barrett has officially signed with NXT as part of the commentary team.
The former Intercontinental Champion has been part of the announce team in recent weeks alongside Vic Joseph and Beth Phoenix.
As first reported by Sports Illustrated, Barrett will now remain an official member of the announce team. The former King of the Ring returned as a color analyst for the black-and-gold brand after several years away from WWE.
Don’t miss Barrett and all the black-and-gold action tonight on NXT at 8/7 C on the USA Network.”
