Stu Bennett talks about his miserable last WWE days
To many, one of the biggest WWE ball-drops of recent years was how the company fumbled the Bad News Barrett character. And now, Stu Bennett has talked about his frustrations during his final years in Vince McMahon's company.
Speaking on Colt Cabana’s Art of Wrestling podcast, Bennett explained how he turned down offers to stay with WWE due to hating his time there.
“They made me a couple of offers,” Bennett said, “’Doesn’t matter what you offer me, I need to leave, I f**king hate it here.’ I needed that change.”
The former Intercontinental Champion eluded, “I was sliding down the card and getting opportunities that I thought were kind of wasted. Like, I became King of the Ring, which sounds like it should be impressive, but what was it followed up with? Zero writing. You know, 30 seconds of writing – ‘just have them wrestle for three minutes’ and ‘have this guy go over Stu’. Yeah, there was that level of writing, week after week.”
Bennett departed WWE in May 2016 following a stint in the League of Nations stable.
