You look at someone like Heath Slater and his onscreen character execution and compare that with how barrett performs. Its just.... bland.
You're comparing Slater, a man with a ROCK STAR gimmick, to Barrett, a guy with a boring ass boxer gimmick, in order to prove who has more charisma? seriously?

No, I'm just saying Heath Slater is ten times more innovative with his character onscreen when compared to Barrett.

And yes Slater is more naturally charismatic than Barrett, despite being a jobber. Like it or not, its true.

He's just not doing anything interesting at present. Squash matches are only useful if they showcase a wrestler's skills, aside from the black hole slam Barrett doesn't appear to have anything with the impact to make it worthwhile. He doesn't even look like he's beating the guys up at present, it's just extremely boring, one-sided matches with nothing happening. They need to rectify this ASAP.

The best part of Wade Barrett's run has been his vignettes. The problem is, he still had to wrestle and he's just plain old boring. I thought he was going to be a world champion within 6 months of debuting on NXT. I was a fool for thinking that. The guy has nothing going for him in the ring. I zone out for every promo and his matches suck the life out of me. If he was 5'10" he'd be long gone.

Dude has lost all momentum. I actually forgot he existed when he came out for his match. This is not a guy who needs to beat random jobbers.

They could probably put him in the WHC picture if they started rebuilding him properly. These jobber matches are painfully boring to watch and are completely pointless.

they always bring guys back and having them squash people to work their way back to the ranks, so to speak. unless you're a known main eventer, you dont return and get injected right into a top-card feud. Give it some more time before writing him off.

although, its very possible he might flounder, getting injured can take a lot out of a wrestler, it makes you cautious and maybe not giving 100% in the ring anymore cause in the back of your mind, you're worried about re-injuring something.

He also got injured at the worst possible time (they were about to have him win Money In The Bank), and its known that in this business, if you miss your opportunity for one reason or another, you're not necessarily guaranteed another one. Case in point, since he's been gone Ryback is now ahead of him on the card.

When did Barrett HAVE his touch? He was boring as sin before Big Snooze decided to play shot put with him, only to come back even boringer. Yes, that's right, "boringer" is a word if I say it is.
