Re: Wade Barrett

Well wasn't he in the process of getting music from manic street preachers?

Re: Wade Barrett

My intial thoughts on Barrett?..He's sexy as hell... But seriously, he has tons of potential. I look for him to a legit to top star in the next year or two. WWE just have to keep building him up, and putting him in good positions to succeed.

2015 Favorites WWE/NXT:
The Heel Overlord and COO Triple H/Seth Rollins/Shinsuke Nakamura/ AJ Styles/ Sasha Banks/ Finn Balor/ Roman Reigns/ Kevin Owens/ Dean Ambrose/ Randy Orton/ Charlotte/Apollo Crews/Stardust

Re: Wade Barrett

He should scrap the street fighter. It could have been good and WWE promoted it, but they barely gave him time to show it off.

He should try out a Bond villain character. Eccentric, wealthy, bodyguard or crony, and a badass.

Re: Wade Barrett

He's got all the tools, and we know management trusts him. However, there are just a couple of things I'm begging him to tweak if they're going to make this work:

1. The "I just don't care anymore" theme has got to go, it doesn't work at all for Barrett. I always think somebody like Heath Slater is coming out when that theme hits, and every time I'm confused when it's Barrett. Plain and simple, the theme is a disaster.

2. Bull hammer is just about the worst finisher I've ever seen... God knows why he's choosing to do that over Wasteland, he should use it. He needs a powerslam or some variation of the Dominator where he falls forward rather than see him do that elbow.

I say if he doesn't become World Champion this year then he never will.

Re: Wade Barrett

I've been really high on Barrett the last couple of years, I really thought he would be main event level by now (then big show happened).
However, since he's returned, I dunno, I guess I was expecting continual improvement from him, in-ring and mic-wise. Skill-wise he seems to be plateauing .

Re: Wade Barrett

He should be steadily improving at this point in his wrestling career, as far as his in-ring skills and mic skills go. He's leveled-off. Luckily, for him Vince gets boners for guys who look like him. So, Wade will likely have at least a few more opportunities thrown his way.

Re: Wade Barrett

I really, really do not like Barrett's entrance music and theme. It is terrible imo.

Re: Wade Barrett

Nothing was wrong with Barrett when he was with the Nexus. They gave him this bare knuckle fighter gimmick and didn't push him
This is what they get
