Re: Pointless Gimick
Agree with the person who said Barrett's bare-knuckle fighter gimmick. It's not pointless in that it sucks, but that WWE is doing absolutely nothing with it. You have these awesome hype-packages for his return, but aside of him growing a beard, doing a punching taunt and using the elbow, nothing about him has changed. His music is still garbage (or slightly remixed garbage) and he still comes out with the cape and flower. His attitude and character is virtually the same as before injury and besides the Bullhammer, the "fighter" gimmick isn't as obvious as it should be. It's a fucking awesome gimmick and he should be doing things like he was doing into the video packages--something like him starting his own Fight Club with some of the other superstars. But alas, that would be far too good for WWE to run with.
