Wade Barrett wwe
Wade Barrett now works for WWE’s Human Resources department.

Just days after his own departure from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Wade Barrett rejoined the company today to become the bearer of bad news to the next crop of performers due to receive pink slips.

Amid swirling rumors that WWE is still in the midst of a “spring cleaning” to reduce costs, the British brawler resurrected his “Bad News Barrett” persona as the newest memberĀ of WWE’s Human Resources department.

According to numerous wrestling news websites — which have an impeccable track record for accuracy — WWE will soon release, via Barrett, numerous lower-tier “enhancement” performers, including:

  • Kevin Owens
  • Brock Lesnar
  • AJ Styles
  • Hunter Hearst Helmsley

Barrett has also been selected to inform the American public of the winner of their next presidential vote, since the outcome will, regardless of winner, inevitably be bad news.
