Retired WWE Superstar rumoured for Royal Rumble return

Last updated

A former WWE Superstar is being rumoured for a potential one-off return to the company for the WWE Royal Rumble 2023 event.

According to a recent report/rumour from Xero News, Bad News Barrett could be appearing at the event in January 2023.

“Early Report: There is talks about the Rumble having some BAD NEWS” the account claimed on Twitter, which of course references Wade Barrett.

It’s worth noting that this rumour from Xero News is just that, a rumour, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

I love a good surprise entrance in the Rumble, and if Barrett is able to go in the ring then he would be a great throwback appearance on the night.

Having said that, I would actually like to see the NXT commentator back in the ring for more than just a one-off appearance. Could you imagine Barrett vs Drew McIntyre? That would be mint.

I’ll wait and see if there’s any more to this, but Barrett has said in the past that he would like to get back in the ring at some point.
