Re: Wade Barrett
They really missed the boat with Wade. The guy and Nexus as a whole were red hot and should have gone over Cena at TLC. Actually scratch that, they should've had Cena take off time when he was forced to leave RAW or something, not come back the following night taking them all out single-handedly. No, they messed up. Barrett should've won the title and run amok on RAW forcing Cena to gather up the super friends and his arch-enemies to work together and bring down Nexus. Instead... well, we got what we got. Wade being symbolically buried under all those chairs at TLC was pretty funny actually.
But no, it didn't stop there. Nexus were dragged out with Genesis or whatever that second group was called but really nobody cared at that point: you don't go from head of the show to a second-rate feud with another clan. And predictably not a single person from Nexus or Corre ever did anything with themselves due to nobody ever given an individual personality: which wasn't a bad thing at the time as it fit with the group's gimmick but at the very least Wade should've gone over big and in the end nothing changed and nothing was accomplished.
Then Wade wallows around the barren wasteland of WWE's midcard hell, doing and accomplishing almost nothing. Now he's got nothing left. His current character is awful and pretty much non-existent. At least let him come out with the rose and cloak and whatnot he had on NXT. He's decent in the ring and very good on the mic but now it seems he's been pushed to the side, which is unfortunate but needed, least until they repackage him and build him up from scratch again.
