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 as well as 2015 King of the Ring. 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)

News and Media Update for April 10, 2015
Posted On: Apr 10, 2015 | By: Dame Tiffany of Wasteland | Under: Digital Photos,News Update,Smackdown!,Television Recap,WWE.com | Comment

Now that we’re back to business after such a hectic and grand time in San Francisco for WrestleMania 31, we know that Bad News Barrett isn’t playing about invoking his rematch clause against Daniel Bryan, the big winner in the WrestleMania Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Champion. BNB sat down with WWE commentator Byron Saxton with these words on the subject –

Also not shy to speak on his leaner, more streamlined frame, Bad News Barrett spoke with WWE.com about the noticeable changes in his physique –

When Bad News Barrett walked out at WrestleMania 31, the WWE Universe took notice.

“If I had abs like Bad News Barrett, I would never wear a shirt,” ESPN anchor Robert Flores tweeted.

Putting it in plain terms, the dude was shredded. So much so that WWE.com had to approach the five-time Intercontinental Champion in the Raw locker room to get the secret behind his new look. The cocky Brit took a break from dishing out unhappy tidings (and Bull Hammer Elbows) to tell us how he changed his physique.

20150408_light_wade-hp

WWE.COM:What led to your recent change in physique?
BAD NEWS BARRETT:Well, I took a few months off because of an injury. As always, when I take time off, I want to come back better than ever. I felt that by improving my cardio and my physique, I would come back as an improved Bad News Barrett.

WWE.COM: Did you change your workout routine at all?
BARRETT:My workout routine is the same as it always was. I’ve always worked out very hard, very intensely, with a lot of free weights. Very little cardio, I get most of it from wrestling 20-plus minutes every day. With my genetics, you have to be careful of doing too much cardio. I’m an ectomorph and you can lose a lot of size quickly if you overdo it on cardio.

WWE.COM: What’s your diet like?
BARRETT:My diet is very good. I don’t eat junk food anymore. I stopped drinking alcohol, which probably was the biggest change. I used to be a very big beer drinker. Being from England, that’s a very common thing. I haven’t drunk alcohol in about five months, cut out the junk food and eat a lot more salads.

WWE.COM: How hard is it to maintain a physique like yours on a Superstar’s travel schedule?
BARRETT:It’s almost impossible to maintain a physique like mine on a Superstar’s travel schedule, which is why I’ve got the greatest physique in WWE right now. To be honest, you need to do a bit of planning, if you know you’re going to be traveling for a long time or the food in the area isn’t going to be too good, you need to think ahead and bring protein bars and shakes, maybe salads.

WWE.COM: How does it make you feel when so many people take notice of your physique?
BARRETT:I couldn’t care less what anyone thinks about me. When I look in the mirror and see what’s looking back at me, I’m incredibly happy. Nobody’s opinion is going to change that.

WWE.COM: You were recently ranked No. 36 on WWE.com’s “Most Beautiful People” list. If the list was to be re-ranked, where would you put yourself, new physique and all?
BARRETT:I think if you took Divas out of that list, which I think is only fair to do, because I’m a guy and, naturally, I’ll get ranked lower, I think I was top 20 already. With my new abs, which weren’t taken into account, I think I’d have to be top 3.

SmackDown Results from April 9, 2014

Daniel Bryan kicked off SmackDown, pulling no punches on the recent nefarious actions of both Sheamus & Bad News Barrett. But before he could finish his conversation with the WWE Universe, The Celtic Warrior and Barrett interrupted to attempt a “European-style arse kicking.”

While the outspoken Dolph Ziggler emerged to even the odds, he quickly found himself “eclipsed” by the arrival of Big Show. That was until Roman Reigns opted to join the party as well. And despite a warning by The World’s Largest Athlete, The Big Dog wasted little time unleashing his attack — sparking a 3-on-3 brawl between the six Superstars and ultimate leading to the expulsion of the bigger competitors from the ring.

Moments later, Big Show and Reigns were added to what was originally scheduled to be a tag team main event. Accordingly, Ziggler, Reigns & Bryan would go head-to-head with Big Show, Barrett & Sheamus!

Reigns, Bryan & Ziggler def. Big Show, Sheamus & Bad News Barrett in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

In the height of the colossal Six-Man Tag Team Match, Roman Reigns delivered a pair of Superman Punches that sent Big Show off the apron to the ringside floor and Bad News Barrett to the canvas.

When Sheamus broke up a pin-attempt by the black-clad powerhouse, Dolph Ziggler sent Sheamus flying over the top rope. Then, moments after Daniel Brian hit the reengaging World’s Largest Athlete with a Running Knee off the apron, Reigns countered Barrett’s Bull Hammer attempt with a mega Spear for the victory.

News Update for April 7, 2015
Posted On: Apr 07, 2015 | By: Dame Tiffany of Wasteland | Under: News Update | Comment

Check out SmackDown this Thursday on SyFy to watch Bad News Barrett team up with Irish nemesis Sheamus against Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan!

sdfriday
As announced on RAW, Bad News Barrett will invoke his rematch clause for the Intercontinental Championship against Daniel Bryan at Extreme Rules

20150402_LIGHT_ER_Match_DBBnB_HP

Daniel Bryan rose above six other Superstars to capture his first Intercontinental Championship in a Ladder Match at WrestleMania. However, if the ever-popular “Yes!” Man hopes to hold onto the title, he’ll have to get past the Superstar who lost the championship that day, Bad News Barrett, at Extreme Rules.

A five-time Intercontinental Champion, Barrett’s most recent reign was marked by ignominy, as a packed field of contenders took turns stealing the title and playing a game of keep-away. Though Barrett officially lost the title at WrestleMania, he was never pinned or made to submit during a championship match over the tenure of his reign.

Looking to take out his frustrations on the newly crowned titleholder, Barrett targeted Bryan beginning the night after WrestleMania. Sheamus’ shocking reappearance interrupted the British brawler’s opening salvo, but Barrett succeeded in causing Bryan to lose to The Celtic Warrior by count-out days later on SmackDown. While the referee’s back was turned, Barrett — who was sitting in on commentary — left the announce desk and leveled Bryan outside the ring with a clubbing Bad News Bull Hammer Elbow.

Cheap shots, however, will not be an option at Extreme Rules, when Bryan and Barrett meet one-on-one. As both Superstars broke into WWE together as competitors on the first season of WWE NXT, the champion and challenger no doubt know each other well. How will their familiarity, not to mention their striking expertise, affect the outcome at Extreme Rules?

Will Barrett use his reach and size advantage, coupled with his blistering arsenal of forearms, big boots and Bad News Bull Hammer Elbows, to reclaim the title for a sixth time? Or will the tenacious and feisty Bryan rely on his encyclopedic knowledge of submission holds, as well as his face-smashing running knee, to retain the championship that many consider the title of purists?

Watch the excitement and when Extreme Rules airs live on WWE Network on Sunday, April 23, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Monday, March 30 (Raw after WrestleMania)

Daniel Bryan’s Intercontinental Title win stole the show and the hearts of the WWE Universe in equal measure despite a last-second effort by Dolph Ziggler. But a burly Brit and a newly nasty fella might have something to say about WWE’s two most beloved underdogs. Having knocked off Bryan twice before WrestleMania and after nearly knocking him off a ladder at WrestleMania, “Zig Man” earned the first pass at D-Bry’s ivory enterprise. With Bad News Barrett lurking at commentary, the two grapplers locked horns over the Intercontinental Title like they were, in fact, competing in the WrestleMania main event.

Bryan and Ziggler exchanged holds and haymakers until The Showoff spiked Bryan into the mat with a modified piledriver targeted at The Beard’s surgically repaired neck. Bryan responded with a belly-to-back superplex, and the playing field evened from there. Much like the Ladder Match, the contest came down to dueling headbutts, but unlike the Ladder Match, Bryan had the option of answering with a Running Knee to retain his title. Bad News Barrett was quick to bum-rush the champion, but a returning, mohawked Sheamus sent him scurrying. Barrett need not have bothered. The Irishman had other targets in mind, Brogue-Kicking Bryan and flattening Ziggler with White Noise before offering a simple message to the crowd: “I’m back.”

Prior to his non-title match against Daniel Bryan, Sheamus made his mission clear, declaring that he won’t rest until he puts every underdog in the WWE Universe out of their misery.

The Celtic Warrior made good on his promise, at least for one night, defeating The “Yes!” Man in SmackDown’s hard-hitting main event. After the new-look Irishman sent The Beard flying off the ring apron with a punishing collision, Bad News Barrett got up from his spot on commentary to deliver a head-turning Bull Hammer Elbow to a dazed Bryan. As a result, the Intercontinental Champion — who was knocked out cold —was counted out and WWE’s returning Irish powerhouse walked out the victor.

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 –

SD_809_Photo_005-3621426983SD_809_Photo_007-970257931SD_809_Photo_009-3731675916SD_809_Photo_015-3468797542SD_809_Photo_017-550487882SD_809_Photo_018-2960186075SD_809_Photo_019-3346524749

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?
