Bad News Barrett finally starting to get over?

It took about 4 year's, but it seems the fans are starting t get behind Barrett and show him more of a reaction, whether it's positive or negative. He got a pretty good pop last night on RAW. He's starting to show more personality and he's always been good in the ring. Hopefully this is a success, this could very well be Barrett's last chance to make it big in WWE.

Re: Bad News Barrett finally starting to get over?

I've noticed he's been getting more of a reaction from the fans now that he had some time to get comfortable with the Bad News Barret gimmick that he's using now. I was a little skeptical that it would work for him but he really does seem to be getting over more on his own, just the reaction he got when he pinned Sheamus tonight almost made it seem like he was the face rather than the heel in that match. I think giving him more time on the mic and using his Bad News catchphrases have been a big part of what's helped him get over more as well.

Hopefully Barrett wins the IC title at ER.

He's winning this tournament and going on to win the IC Title at Extreme Rules. I've been finding him a lot more entertaining lately.

Re: Bad News Barrett finally starting to get over?

If he takes on the moniker of Bad News, I kinda hope he develops a bit of something from Bad News Brown. Like attitude or being more vicious.

No Ghetto Blaster though. Lol.

Barrett needs a world title, not IC. Sadly it will never happen as long as the titles are unified.

He has already won the IC title couple of times before, and all of his reigns were poor due to bad booking. WWE just doesn't give a fuck about this title. The last good IC champion I can even remember was Randy Orton, and that was like back in 2004.

Re: Bad News Barrett finally starting to get over?

Finally? Wade Barrett was more over as a heel in 2010 than anyone except for Vickie since. They wouldn't even let him speak during some of those promos....a heat magnet. Now he was given stupid pushes for lesser talents like Ziggler, Punk...those types. But he was always the real deal. His mic presence is way too strong for him not to be. It's way too easy for him. The booking just sucks dick in the WWE except for Cena/Show/Sheamus/Lesnsr/HHH/Stephanie/Orton

Re: Bad News Barrett finally starting to get over?

If Barrett wins the IC title for a third time, I can only hope that his reign is better than his previous ones. With his Bad News gimmick, maybe he can get some decent promo time to make the reign semi-interesting.
