Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Stu Bennett, better known as Wade Barrett, was recently interviewed by Mirror Sport to talk about various topics. During this interview, he was asked about potentially wrestling again. Here is what he had to say:
“It’s absolutely huge because British wrestling hasn’t been in the mainstream since the days of Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks which were 30 to 35 years ago,” said Bennett. “When I was coming through as a professional wrestler, as a young man in 2003 and 2004, there really wasn’t much of a wrestling scene in the UK to take advantage of or make a living in, so I was forced to have to go to the US and kinda make a living from it out there. But these days, with the platform that is offered now through ITV and WOS, it’s different.
“I’m on a bit of a career sabbatical at the moment. I wrestled for 14 or 15 years,” said Bennett. “I’ve got a bunch of injuries, I’m tired, I’m getting old, I’m getting some grey hair now. I promise you Morgan that at some point I will be back in the ring and maybe that will take place in WOS. We’ll have to see.”
