As noted earlier this week, Wade Barrett will not be staying with WWE after his contract expires in June. In the past, Barrett had expressed interest in becoming a soccer analyst in the UK after he finished his wrestling career.
There have been rumors that a current WWE star has been seriously looking at doing MMA but I don't know if that is Barrett or someone else.
There hasn't been an official statement issued from WWE but Barrett has sort of addressed the news with this tweet on Wednesday: "I unexpectedly received a lot of very nice messages from people today. Thank you to everyone who took the time to write some kind words. I'll comment further at a more appropriate time, but for now I'm 100% focused on doing my job for @WWE. See you at #FastLane on Sunday."
