Wade Barrett -- (born August 10, 1980, as Stu Bennett, in Preston, England) is a WWE Superstar, best known for leading the Nexus after winning the first season of NXT in 2010, which launched him into feuding with the likes of John Cena and Randy Orton.

Despite a strong start, Wade Barrett ended up on the losing end of the main event at SummerSlam and Survivor Series in 2010, and then CM Punk usurped control of the Nexus from him. Barrett turned things around quickly by establishing the Corre with former-NXT teammates Justin Gabriel & Heath Slater and Ezekiel Jackson and by winning the WWE Intercontinental title in March 2011.

His brush with success was short-lived and the Corre were on the losing end of an eight-man tag match at WrestleMania XXVII and Barrett dropped the title to a defecting Jackson at WWE Capitol Punishment. Shortly thereafter, Barrett disassociated from Gabriel & Slater to stand on his own.

His singles career was christened by the launch of Wade Barrett Figure adventure series playing out on Twitter, thanks in full to the etWo.
