Wade Barrett Planning To Leave WWE?

There are unconfirmed reports that League of Nations member Wade Barrett, who is currently being kept out of the ring while he rehabs from an injury, has informed WWE that he won’t be signing a new contract when his current deal expires. If true, this would bring an end to the WWE career of the man who won the very first season of NXT (back when it was a pseudo-reality competition show), was a multiple time Intercontinental Champion, and most recently won the 2015 King of the Ring tournament.

Barrett’s WWE career was also marred by several major injuries, which often derailed planned pushes, including his most successful gimmick as “Bad News” Barrett. Since winning King of the Ring, Barrett has been on something of a losing streak, and appeared to have fallen out of favor with WWE’s Creative team.
