NWA Champion Nick Aldis announced at the end of this week's edition of NWA Powerrr that former WWE star Stu Bennett aka Wade "Bad News" Barrett has joined the National Wrestling Alliance as their new color commentator.    He will be replacing Jim Cornette in that role.

Bennett will debut at the 12/14 NWA Into the Fire PPV and work the subsequent TV tapings in Atlanta, GA on 12/15 and 12/16.

Bennett, who won the first season of WWE NXT and had a long run with WWE, departed in 2016, last wrestling in April of that year.  Since then, he has focused mostly on acting and hosting endeavors, starring in the film I Am Vengeance as well as Netflix's Beastmaster, but has made non-wrestling appearances for ITV's World of Sport Wrestling in Great Britain.
