Yeah, it's a great match and would have been even better if the finish was done properly.

You and Pyro debating this would be gold.

I find it funny how he hates on Orton and says he has no charisma "because he talks like a robot" but gives Barrett a pass even though he sounds exactly the same when speaking. Ever since I've started prioritizing ring work, I've been pretty much fine with Barrett getting buried since he's so dull in the ring. Only thing he has is some mic skills.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

So I'm feeling an urge to watch some old school 'rasslin and I'm not sure what DVDVR set to get. Any suggestions?

Barrett's MIZ SKILLZ aren't even that great to deserve all this praise and his ring work blows chunks. He needs more time.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

To be fair, anyone being forced to work the phrase "Barrett barrage" into all his promos is going to have a rough time of it. But yeah, Barrett's been worthless since Nexus went down the tubes at Summerslam.

I thought they were going to do something decent with him upon his recent return instead they had him beat Yoshi Tatsu. If that's not the key ingredient to momentum then I don't know what is.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Barrett's shite in near enough every area. I can't recall any Barrett performance were I thought 'you know what, that was pretty good,' Fucker can barely even be carried to anything decent.

But saying that, I still kinda want him to win a world title so we can finally say we've had a English-born champion. It's amazing that that's not happened yet.

I'd rather they just wait to sign Magnus.

Barrett sucks, but his PPV match with Cena was very good, tbh.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

All dat Barrett hate

One of the best mic workers WWE has right now and an excellent on at that, but stuck with bland material, a bland character, and hell, he rarely gets the mic to begin with, and when he does, it's for only a couple of minutes. Of course when he did get the mic consistently and had more than two minutes on it every few weeks, he became the most over heel in the company and was cutting great promos on a weekly basis, so meh.

His in-ring work isn't as bad as some make it out to be either, though it is lacking, I've always said his execution and power move-set is fine, but his pacing of matches is terrible and what he really needs to work on. But not bad in the ring, just decent.

Oh well, hardly matters anyway. He's never getting a consistent push and that much is obvious. At this point it seems he'll be lucky to even get a World Title match again period, let alone the belt itself.

As an overall talent, I'd put him above anyone in WWE right now except Punk, Sandow, Rhodes, Orton, Christian, Jericho and maybe Sheamus. Problem is everyone either only has in-ring work to go for them that I wouldn't put up there with Barrett on the mic (Cesaro, McIntyre, Swagger, etc.) or just sucks at both in-ring work and on the mic. Can't thing of anyone besides Barrett who's a pure-mic guy.

I'm watching you...
