: Stuart Alexander "Stu" Bennett is an English professional wrestler, signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (under the SmackDown brand) as Wade Barrett and is a four-time WWE Intercontinental Champion. After honing his skills in Florida Championship Wrestling, Wade Barrett went on to win Season One of WWE NXT in May 2010. Barrett rose to power, notoriety, and dominance as the founding leader of the Nexus for the latter half of 2010 and from early to mid-2011 formed (and later disbanded) another alliance, the Corre, during his first reign as WWE Intercontinental champion. The latter part of 2011 saw the Barrett Barrage propel the English superstar to his greatest height thus far as a single competitor. (Continued

Sharing photos of his recent trip to India, WWE.com caught footage of Bad News Barrett coaching a football game with youngsters.
Akhilesh of TenSports.com spoke with BNB during the India tour –
What was the first thing that made you realize you were in India? Any special instance that stands out from your trip so far? And how has the experience been?
BNB: The first thing that really stood out when I landed in India was the kind of outfits that people wear here when they’re working; like in the US and the UK way I’m used to where they wear jeans and T – Shirt and shorts or something like that. But here they were extravagant outfits with a lot of gold on, with crazy hats and things like that. So I noticed that right after I stepped out of the plane. I had seen people in very wild outfits, which I thought was cool. And in terms of the experience out here, it’s been great to me. So many Indian fans who are so obsessive about the WWE and I’m talking about the mall appearances and bars, and things like that. Just to know that there are so many crazy fans out here in India who love WWE has been a really cool experience, and that really stood out to me.
How was it for you as a superstar to be involved with the biggest name in the business today, John Cena, right after debuting on the main roster?
BNB: That was a pretty intense period in my life, to go from being pretty much an unknown wrestler, which I had been for 6 years at that point since I’ve started wrestling to suddenly get the opportunity to go out there and be a main event level character, and be the guy that’s opening up every RAW on the microphone and closing every RAW, wrestling all the top stars and beating up John Cena, which is a huge jump for me to go from that unknown around the world; I wasn’t recognized to immediately being one of the most important guys on the show. So it was a pretty intense period in my life, but I also loved every second of it. It was what essentially I was aiming to do, what I had sacrificed for, for over 6 – 7 years in my career to get to that point. So, to get that payoff, it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders; so I didn’t really feel the pressure much. I was just enjoying the reactions we were getting and I knew it was working. Everything we did was working perfectly, so that felt good.
Regarding the way how the whole angle played out, do you think Nexus could’ve been booked better towards the end of the feud?
BNB: Yeah, 100%. I think there was definitely more life left in Nexus at the time. If I had been in charge, I wouldn’t have ended it like it ended. But then again, we got great opportunities for young superstars to come into the WWE, make a huge impact and then 4 or 5 years down the line, most of us are still around, and most of us are still making a very good living in the WWE, and are involved in great angles. So I don’t really look at it in a negative way; I think we were very fortunate to get that opportunity, and I’m also very grateful for the fact that Nexus came along when it did. I wish it could’ve gone a bit longer, but I think there’s always that appetite left for people where they want to see some more of Nexus. They know it didn’t end the way it should’ve ended, and I think there’s always a potential in the future where we could bring it back. So we’ll have to see how that goes.

Bad News Barrett
has also done an interview with SportsKeeda
on various topics –
Q: You have been out of action for quite a long time now with your shoulder injury. When can we expect you to be in the ring?
Yes, I have been out for a while. I’m going through my recovery phase right now. It has been great, I’m feeling great. I will be back probably by December, with WWE doing their European tour this winter.
On 2K15: Q: Will you be saying your catchphrase “I’m afraid I’ve got some Bad News” in the game?
I will be. Actually, it is really important because I’ve in the game for a few years now. Since 2010, I’ve been the game every year, but this is the first time, I’m actually in it as Bad News Barrett. So, yeah, it’s pretty cool for me that this new character that I’ve been doing has been doing so well, fans have responded to it pretty well. And, now I’m in the 2K15 video game as Bad News Barrett, so that’s pretty big in itself.
