REPORT: Stu Bennett to be on commentary for 8/26 edition of NXT

Per report, former WWE talent Stu Bennett is returning to the company for one night only to provide commentary for NXT.

The 8/26 episode of NXT on the USA Network will see the fallout from NXT TakeOver: XXX that concluded with Karrion Kross defeating Keith Lee to become NXT Champion. Per Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, the show will also feature former multi-time WWE Intercontinental Champion Stu Bennett on commentary.

Sources told the site that for now, this is just a one-time appearance and Bennett has not signed a deal to return to the company. Over the past several years, Bennett has done commentary for the World of Sport reboot on ITV and most recently, he was the commentator for the National Wrestling Alliance.

Bennett went on a press tour this Summer to promote the ‘I Am Vengeance: Retaliation’ film that he stars in and during that tour, he stated in several interviews that he was not aware of when the NWA would be running shows again. Bennett told POST Wrestling in an exclusive interview how fond he was of doing commentary and being more excited to call the action than being involved in it.

Bennett joined WWE in 2006 and stayed with the company until 2016 when he and the company agreed to an early release of his contract. This Wednesday will be Bennett’s first time back on WWE programming since his last run with the company.
