Join WhatCulture's Andy H. Murray and Adam Wilbourn as they bring you Thursday's rundown of all the latest wrestling news.

WWE and AEW have both confirmed new signings within the past 24 hours. First, we talk the market leaders, who have just inked Wade Barrett to a full-time deal after his return to the company for the first time in four years last month (00:27). The Englishman has signed an initial one-year deal to effectively take Mauro Ranallo's seat in the NXT announce booth.


As for AEW, they have picked up All Out standout Will Hobbs (03:08), who has played a regular role on Dark in recent months and is now involved in a major storyline with Jon Moxley and Lance Archer.

It's back over to WWE after that, with a new report suggesting the promotion is now offering less money on new talent contracts, using the global health crisis as an excuse in a year where they are still forecasted to make record profits (05:27). Finally, we close on everything we know so far about next week's special Tuesday night episode of AEW Dynamite (09:25).
