Wade Barrett Discussion


Okay, seriously. That's the best the WWE writers could do with wade frickan barret.

Wade barret with fantastic promo's leading up to his return, the bare knuckle brawler, comes back how??.

First by the WWE telling the crowd and people on tv that he is up "NEXT" Ruining ANY surprise factor.

Then he comes out and destroyed yoshi tatsu with maybe one of the worst finishers I have seen in a long long time.

Then he cuts a 30 second promo about how he is "Open for business", meaning he has zero feuds RIGHT NOW, and he WILL wait until after NOC before he gets anything going.

So you let Wade frickan barret return and he is nearly completely forgotten already, with zero crowd reaction and hype.

Why could you not SAVE him for AFTER NOC, and debut him by **** kicking shaemus, which starts a feud between the irish fighter and the english brawler.

F*** this company sometimes.

Re: What the F*** was that? (Wade Barrett Return)

The finisher is badass but the way he did it fucking sucked. I wonder what all the Kassius Ohno fans think after this because it looks(I'm not sure I'm not a fan of him) like his entire gimmick is about him being obsessed to KO his rivals with dat elbow move.

Re: What the F*** was that? (Wade Barrett Return)

No, that's not the best the WWE writers could come up with. That's the best the xenophobic, anti-English dictator running the company who hates Barrett and thinks building him up to humiliate him is funny ALLOWED to be done with him.

What did you expect? It's Barrett. Vince has practically been pissing in his mouth for 2 years.

Well, that was underwhelming.

Let me start off by saying I do like Wade Barrett, but holy fuck, that's gotta be the most unimpressive debut or return of all time. People give Ryback the shits, but atleast he makes his squash matches entertaining. This is an example of how NOT to do a squash match.

Did Wade Barrett even deliver one move in this match? I guess because he's a former bareknuckle boxer, he has to take all the wrestling moves out of his moveset to get it over? That's ridiculous. On top of that, his finisher shat all over any potential Kassius Ohno push as "The KO King".

One more thing, the beard just does not look right. My ideal Wade Barrett return would have him wrestling in the beard and jeans, like The British Bulldog did. Atleast he would stand out from the pack. The tights are atleast better than those turd-green colors he was repping pre-injury.

I had big hopes for a Wade Barrett return, but it doesn't look all that good at the moment.

Re: What the F*** was that? (Wade Barrett Return)

Is it just me or did he look bigger? Also the beard works on him but the timing of his return was early or maybe even a bit late. He could of stopped Sheamus/Del Rio #too many (no that is not a hashtag)

I was looking forward to his return but this guy is going for a shitty MMA gimmick.

Wade Barrett isn't that interesting to begin with so what did everyone expect?

Re: What the F*** was that? (Wade Barrett Return)

they have 7 freaking weeks + NOC til HIAC to have Barrett start something. Not every return has to be dramatic like HHH, Kane, Undertaker, Rock, Austin, & HBK. Orton returned in a worthless match against Slater.

Agreed, as I posted in the discussion thread, that was probably the least impactful squash match I've ever seen, and I wasn't happy about him using a variant of Ohno's finisher especially when it looked much worse than Ohno's.
