Stu Bennett's in-ring days in the wrestling business may or may not be over, but he is certainly enjoying his days as a commentator.
Bennett last wrestled in 2016 when he competed for WWE as Wade Barrett, but since then, he's been involved with a number of wrestling promotions fulfilling a number of roles. His most recent job in wrestling saw him do commentary for the NWA and in an interview with Andrew Thompson of Post Wrestling, Bennett said he gets more excited being a commentator at times than being a wrestler.
“I absolutely do because my favorite part of being a pro wrestler was the occasions where I got to tell wrestlers’ stories rather than just having random matches with a guy and doing moves that doesn’t mean anything. That’s never appealed to me and a lot of pro wrestling these days unfortunately has become that. It’s a stunt show at times. So now, whenever I’m commentating, no matter what match is going on ahead of me, it’s up to me to add some color to the match and add some storyline and some narrative and get excited about it and I can’t help but get absorbed into these matches and feel like I’ve become a part of it and I’m telling these stories for them so, I love doing it. I think I’ll be doing it for a long time, and I hope to see my career with NWA progress," Bennett said.
