Wade Barrett’s Repackaging, JBL Wants To Lose 38 Pounds, Foley-Comic

– As previously reported, there is talk of repackaging Wade Barrett when he’s brought back to WWE television. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that officials are considering bringing him back with the “Badnews Barrett” gimmick he’s been using on the JBL & Cole show.

– WWE announcer JBL says he plans to lose 35 pounds by the end of the year, in preparation for his next mountain climb in January. He tweeted on Wednesday night:

“Last dessert tonight for 13 weeks, going on end of year diet for #WWEClimbingTeam ‘s next adventure in January. Going to lose 35 pounds!”

On Thursday morning, he tweeted that he’s actually farther away from his target weight than he thought:

“First weigh in for #WWEClimbingTeam 13 week training program, got 38 pounds to lose not 35! No problem! Let’s train!”

– The first edition of WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley’s new WWE comic book, due out in December, will feature John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, Kane, AJ Lee, Fandango, Summer Rae and of course, Foley himself.
