Don’t go, Wade Barrett! That’s what loads of WWE fans are desperately saying to the wrestler after news broke that he may not be renewing his contract at the beginning of the summer. See some of their begging tweets below!
WWE fans could be saying goodbye to another legend, and they’re devastated about it. Wade Barrett, 35, who has performed in the ring as King Barrett for nearly 10 years, is reportedly not planning to renew his contract after it expires in June. This shocking news is a major blow to wrestling fans around the world — and just hours after news broke about his contract renewal, they took to Twitter to beg Wade to stay!
Wade recently informed WWE officials of his decision to discontinue ties with the company, according to ProWrestlingSheet.com. The British wrestler has built quite the fan base over the time he spent with WWE, but he supposedly decided to call it quits because he was no longer enjoying what he was doing. He addressed the reports on his Twitter, writing, “I’ll comment further at a more appropriate time, but for now I’m 100% focused on doing my job for @WWE.”
While many fans commented in support of his decision, as he has apparently not been treated very well in his time as a WWE wrestler. But even those who were proud of Wade for doing what’s best for him were absolutely crushed to hear that he may only be in the WWE for a few more months — and tried to convince him to reconsider!

@WadeBarrett You are a class act and I’ll be gutted if you leave the WWE. You’re one of my favourites, and WWE needs Brits like you.

Considering another WWE great, Daniel Bryan, just announced his retirement Feb. 8, this is a tough month for wrestling fans. It’s hard not to wonder who will be exiting next — no wonder fans are begging Wade to keep fighting!
Do you hope Wade renews his contract, HollywoodLifers?
