It really won't be that much of a problem. Kassius has various moves that he can use as his finisher. On a side note I like camouflage attire as well. It also looks like he is getting back in to shape. His love handles aren't hanging over his trunks as bad as when he first debuted. lol. His match with Richie was solid, and his Lets go Jesus chants are awesome. His finisher was reversed so that's a good reason to get rid of it since the reversal of his old move was how he lost.

I agree that it is pretty poor that Barrett has been given a gimmick and move that were working well for a guy on the development show, especially as Chris Hero has been using that elbow for years, I know he used The Cravat in the indies as well, but the whole "he is Chris Hero and he throws elbows" thing was brilliant.
I actually liked The Wasteland as a finisher, it only really worked well for Wade because he is strong enough to have it look effective, but he took out enough main event guys with it to be a legit match-ender.

I'm not sure I'd say Ohno's gimmick was "working well" for him anyway. Most of his KO promos were pretty bad.

Ohno has been pretty terrible since he came to NXT/FCW, so I'd actually much rather a superior talent like Barrett has the finisher/gimmick.

People do realize it's not all Barrett's fault right?

Stop trying to make him out to be some vindictive finisher/gimmick stealer.

You never know Barrett could have had some influence on it. Who's to say he didn't go to the writers or whoever and pitch the idea? The writers didn't come up with Stone Cold, Austin did and pitched the idea. Barrett was a bare knuckle fighter, he could have went to them and suggested he start using it more in his character.

Either way i was just talking in a kayfabe sense about Barrett taking the gimmick, you don't always have to make it clear the writers are to blame.

Stepping back and viewing both Chris Hero and Barrett's careers overall instead of through a microscope in small sample sizes, Chris Hero has been a MUCH MUCH better performer than Barrett in almost all aspects of wrestling. I hate this "what have you done for me lately" stance that many people on here take towards journeymen wrestlers. The fact that Barrett is using a poorly done version of Ohno's finisher and gimmick is ridiculous and insulting on many levels. Barrett's one great trait is his word delivery. He has very little charisma, other than those few backstage segments, decent presence that doesn't seem to translate with a large audience, average ring skills, and a mediocre look. Having said all that I enjoy Barrett, but by stealing aspects from a superior talent like Hero, I'm having a hard time enjoying him as much lately.

Hopefully Chris Hero soon drops this wildman look and adopts his ROH knock out kid look, complete with the rap music entrance, and flashy attire. That gimmick fits his personality much better than his work in NXT. I would like to see creative, catch-phrase laden, promos again that echo back to a young mohammad ali, because THAT is a gimmick that will make him a star in the wwe.

Ohno's elbow is immeasurably superior to Barrett's. There's no reason why he should have to change it.
