They need to "reboot" Smackdown. Actually WWE as a whole needs a reboot.

Re: SD brand plans {spoiler}

If they're so high on him then PUT THE WORLD TITLE ON HIM.

But of course, like every report that they make about Barrett, it's a blatant lie. Booking outright tells you who WWE is high on, and he's at the bottom of the company's priorities list, right along side the Superstars regulars. There's actually a better chance that Jack Swagger becomes world champion again than Barrett does. Anybody who thinks he's going to be a main eventer clearly doesn't watch the fucking show.

So high on Barrett that when he returned they had nothing for him, still. They had a huge opportunity for him to come back and attack Orton or Sheamus and all they did was give him a character reboot.

Ryback, Slater, Otunga and Darren Young are all more over then Barrett at this point. Weird right?

Exactly this. That doesn't mean, however, that I approve of the way they have had Barrett return because I don't. It's been lame as hell and boring.

Nevertheless, they obviously weren't/aren't ready for Sheamus to drop the World Heavyweight Championship. Add to that point that Ziggler is really in front of Barrett in line thanks to the MITB institution and they want Big Show to put Sheamus over (since Sheamus has worked with only guys "beneath him" in prolonged feuds since winning the championship at Wrestlemania).

And to be perfectly honest, they need to build Barrett up, but just not the way they are ostensibly doing so at this moment. He doesn't need to beat undercarders who they have waltz out simply to lose to everyone anyway. He needs to get his fucking character over. Most members of the viewing audience haven't really cared about him specifically and individually since CM Punk took over the Nexus (lol) at the end of 2010/beginning of 2011, and especially so since The Corre was such a rancid flop.

Agreed. If Barrett is getting it, he should get it when Sheamus's monster booking is ready to lighten up.


KARLA LOPEZ, THE HOTTEST MODEL/ACTRESS ALIVE. Sheamus, Swagger, Wade, Dixie, Cesaro, Sami, DB, RKO, Drew, Del Rio, Cody, Punk, AJ LEE, Athena, Jasmin Areebi, Becky / (SIG CRED: Abrown/A$AP/Sol Katti) CHAMPviaDQ = Great GFX.

So what is that, 2019? That booking is never going away.

Re: SD brand plans {spoiler}

Ummm, no it didn't. He got a steel ringpost rammed into his head, that's a cheap win.

Anybody who's hoping for him to stop getting booked like this, just give up hope, it's not going to happen.

I gave up on Barrett since he won the IC Title from Kofi. They obviously don't see main event in him.
