Name: Wade Barrett Birthday: August 10, 1980 Ring Names: Bad News Barrett, Wade Barrett, Stu Bennett, Stu Sanders, Lawrence Knight Short Biography: 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)

Tonight’s episode of SmackDown put the focus on the Intercontinental Championship, the WrestleMania Ladder Match, and Bad News Barrett‘s opponents, of which Daniel Bryan started the show proclaiming he would be a part of the fray –
The Intercontinental Title was soon front and center on the best show on Thursday night as R-Truth flaunted the coveted championship on the ramp with every other participant in the upcoming contest sharing a spot inside the squared circle. Before the British champion could chase after the rapping Superstar, though, an all-out brawl broke out, with the “Yes!” Man, Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler clearing the ring of Barrett, Stardust and Luke Harper.
The rollercoaster ride that is the Intercontinental Title chase reached fast and furious levels in SmackDown’s Six-Man Tag Team Match main event. And amid the chaos in the contest’s final moments, Daniel Bryan tagged himself in on Dolph Ziggler and hit a Running Knee on Luke Harper to pick up the victory for his team in the battle of Ladder Match participants.
The feel-good moment would not last long, however. The Showoff and Dean Ambrose seemed to take exception to The Beard attracting all the glory during a post-match interview with Michael Cole, with both Superstars calling the “Yes!” Man a “turd.” Can the pursuit for the Intercontinental Title get any crazier?

WrestleMania 31 is set! There’s going to be heights to ascend in San Jose as well as falls to take…will Our Hero come out victorious with his Intercontinental Championship?
It would be a good idea if Bad News Barrett could keep the belt itself in physical reach, in the meantime —
SmackDown Results from February 26th, 2015 –
Atlanta, GA —The Road to WrestleMania headed into overdrive on Thursday’s hottest show, with three Superstars playing capture the Intercontinental Title, another poking a stick at The Demon of Death Valley and six more battling in an explosive WWE Fastlane Six-Man Tag Team rematch!
Daniel Bryan kicked off SmackDown, reflecting on the fact that, after losing to Roman Reigns at WWE Fastlane, he will not be fighting for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania. But before he could continue, Bad News Barrett interrupted, addressing Bryan with much disdain, taking issue with Dean Ambrose stealing his Intercontinental Title and ordering WWE’s “Yes!” Man out of “his” ring.
It wasn’t long before The Lunatic Fringe joined the fray, though, lighting the fuse on a brawl between him and his English adversary. In the end, it was a combined attack from Ambrose and Bryan that created some very bad — and painful — news for Mr. Barrett.
Daniel Bryan def. Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett
Following an altercation earlier in the night with Daniel Bryan and Dean Ambrose, Bad News Barrett took on The Beard — with R-Truth joining the SmackDown announce team and eyeing the titleholder’s reclaimed Intercontinental Championship. In fact, it wasn’t long before Truth tip-toed his way over to the ring and stole the title once again.
In the contest’s final moments, Barrett looked ready to hit the Bull Hammer elbow, but at the last second, Bryan countered with a Running Knee out of nowhere and picked up the three-count. With that defeat, Barrett had lost three matches in a row:Truth on last week’s SmackDown, Dolph Ziggler on Raw and now Bryan!
Later, R-Truth returned the stolen title to Dean Ambrose.
In most recent news, Bad News Barrett had an engaging interview with The Pain Clinic to promote WWE’s show in Rochester. Listen to the interview in its entirety here!
Some slick work went down at the Fed-Ex Forum in Memphis tonight –
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dean Ambrose will have to wait to see his face up on WWE World Headquarters’ wall of champions, but he was able to walk out of WWE Fastlane with the Intercontinental Title. The Lunatic Fringe may have lost his match against Bad News Barrett by disqualification, but when the unstable Ambrose wants something, you better believe he is going to take it, whether or not it’s rightfully his.
The bout contained no shortage of action as both the British brawler and his unstable challenger traded heavyweight strikes. The contest moved inside and outside the ring with both men showing a remarkable ability to bounce back from damaging blows. However, the title holder seemed to grow tired of facing his opponent’s relentless attack, at one point even trying to walk off with his championship.
Barrett would go a step further when he tried to escape into the WWE Universe before Ambrose grabbed his adversary and pulled him back into action. Unfortunately for The Lunatic Fringe, his unrelenting assault would have its consequences as the referee disqualified the challenger after he refused to stop his attack on Barrett in the corner.
Although the Intercontinental Champion would retain his title with the disqualification victory, Ambrose would get the last laugh. The wild Superstar enlisted a post-match attack on Barrett, hitting the British Superstar with Dirty Deeds before walking off with the Intercontinental Title.
Barrett technically came away with the Intercontinental Championship, but it doesn’t look like he will be able to wear it around his waist any time soon. With Ambrose walking out of Memphis with the Intercontinental Title in tow, what is next for these growing rivals? And how will Bad News Barrett react after having his coveted title taken from him?
