The recent announcement by the NWA comes on the heels of a recent resignation. Jim Cornette’s departure from the broadcast team has opened the door for Bennett. For anyone that isn’t sure as to how well Bennett will adapt as a commentator best look to his past. Between Bennett’s in-ring experience, a strong ability to deliver convincing promos and knowledge of the sport should have no fear. The former bare-knuckles champion is a recognized face to wrestling fans. Bennett’s ties to the NWA date back to 2004. It was then when he competed as part of the NWA UK Hammerlock Wrestling promotion. There was no indication as to whether Bennett’s working relationship with NWA was a one-time deal or something long-term. Fans can anticipate the broadcast debut of Stu Bennett at Into the Fire.
