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.

WTF is the point of this. Rugby isn't that big in Switzerland and its not like Cesaro uses the gimmick. Why not just say he was a big deal in Europe who was banned from several leagues for being too agressive

It may be pointless, but it got the All Blacks and Buck Shelford mentioned on WWE programming (cheers JBL)!!!

Since I'm from NZ, I'm perfectly happy with that!

Barretts bare knuckle boxing career isn't a gimmick. It's legit. Like Angle's wrestling and Lesnar's MMA.

The WWE doesn't need go overboard with his gimmick. But every once in a while he should get pissed and KO or TKO someone.

The Cesaro rugby gimmick was 100% WWE BS. I cringed when I heard he was a former Rugby player who got booted for excessive violence. That was the same thing with the Goon.

If the gimmick had some merit I'd understand.

Like a former Soccer Player... Whose go to move was a punt kick to the head. But even that would be LAME

Ugh, yes. He grew a beard, uses an elbow shot as a finisher, and has a fighting stance. That's all that the supposed gimmick is now. I'm a Barrett fan, but Jesus, this gimmick is so damn boring compared to where he was before the elbow injury.


That has got to be Kane.

i wonder could he use Rugby Union/Rugby League tackle? there's variation of tackle and Cesaro could add more move after he made the tackle.

He's a wrestler. I really hate how the WWE allows guys to wear jean shorts.

UFC limits what Fighters can wear, the WWE should really do the same.

Jeans are constricting.

I just saw this picture:

I've said a thousand times Wade Barrett should have a gangster-mercenary manipulator guy from the streets gimmick.
