Wade Barrett To Replace Jim Cornette On NWA Announce Team

Wade Barrett has joined the NWA

The NWA has found its new color commentator as Jim Cornette is out and replacing him will be none other than Stu Benett aka Wade Barrett. 

It was revealed at the end of the latest episode of Powerrr that Bennett will be joining the NWA commentary team at Into the Fire as he’ll be calling the pay-per-view with Joe Galli.

Cornette and the NWA parted ways after Cornette made a racially offensive comment a few weeks ago on Powerrr when Trevor Murdoch was battling NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis in a match.
