: Stuart Alexander "Stu" Bennett is an English professional wrestler, signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (under the SmackDown brand) as Wade Barrett and is a five-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

WWE also took a look at some of the Superstars’ nastier scars, including the infamous one of Bad News Barrett –
Location: Right underarm
“As you know, my reputation as a bare-knuckle fighter often precedes me — it’s how I made my way in the world before being signed to WWE. That being said, due to the ‘less-than-legal’ nature of that particular sport, I’m not so inclined to give too many details about how this 12-inch scar came into my possession. These are the types of things that tend to happen when you’re fighting in an ex-communist country.”
“As you might imagine, the scar didn’t come from the actual fight — which I won soundly — but from the getaway afterward. Let’s just say the local authorities weren’t thrilled with the outcome, or the fact that I was leaving with ‘their’ money. All told, I somehow managed to keep my winnings, though I have a constant reminder of why I’ll never visit that country ever again.”
