Although Wade Barrett is happy with his current job as the WWE NXT color commentator, he isn’t ruling out an in-ring return.
Barrett, who was under contract as a wrestler with WWE from 2006-2016, was the winner of the first season of the NXT TV series, became the leader of The Nexus, and is a five-time Intercontinental Champion.
His last match was on the April 4, 2016, edition of WWE Monday Night Raw. While speaking with BT Sport for a new interview, the NXT commentator was asked about wrestling again.
“Yeah, I can still move. I can still lift. My body is feeling good. I’ve always said that I’m in good shape, I’m healthy, and if the right opportunity presents itself at my door, then maybe we’ll see Wade Barrett return in the ring one day. I’m not chasing anything. Sometimes guys start floating ideas out because they secretly want to get back into the ring. I love my gig in NXT. I love commentating. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, so I don’t have some sort of strange itch I’m trying to desperately scratch, but with that being said, I don’t think you ever really retire when you’re a wrestler, so if the right opportunity presents itself at the right time then yeah we might see me back in the ring at some point.”
