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

the guy has talent bro im not denying that, but a knock out gimmick would only work if you have an undefeated streak. im a fan of his but until he does something career defining like the mizes monkey promo unless he does a promo along the lines of his up bringing explaining his character ali being his inspiriation etc even when his off NXT he will just be a mid-carder at best. vince sees more in cesaro (who happens to be unamerican) because his got the main event look, the talent charisma everything his reactions suck cause his new an still being integrated but in vinces eyes his more of a money maker then kasius

The thread isn't about K.O. though. I liked the debut tbh. He was completely dominant without even having to try (just struck/punched his way to a victory) and the promo at the end was good. Wouldn't mind seeing him get some air time on Raw this Monday.
How is that all that matters? Hero has been on NXT for about 4 weeks. His matches have been no different to Barrett's match. How do you figure that Barrett has been impressive and Hero has not?

You're too stubborn to check what Hero is capable of. I refuse to discuss this topic with you because quite frankly, I know too much more about it and talking to you is like talking to a child.

Eh, thought it was a decently-executed, somewhat utilitarian "return." No problem with it. Not everything can be grand and awe-inspiring in the moment. Will wait and see where they go with Barrett from here.

That's ridiculously ignorant of you.

I've watched Hero since 2005 and even I haven't seen much greatness in his NXT/FCW stuff. I mean the talent is still there but it hasn't been anything special.

Talking down to people doesn't make you look smart though.

Very underwhelming, I personally donít like the beard, he was better with his ďcleanĒ shaved look. I donít know, I guess I had my expectations high (which was my mistake cause this is the WWE) with Barrett return, but after watching his squash, I might as well just stare at a blank wall. But however Iím going to just sit back and wait till things unfold more for Barrett to truly judge of whatís going on. I think Iím just so disappointed that he still using that god awful theme that many canít take him seriously as a vicious Heel.

However after the match he did deliver a good short and sweet promo.

I liked Barrett's return. And I took the "Open For Business" line literally. Like he's announcing he'll be a mercenary for hire. He said he knew he wouldn't be getting any title shots so he was doing this to make things interesting for him.

I'm expecting Barrett to be doing a heel version of the APA gimmick -- he'll be a bad guy mercenary that other heels hire to take out their babyface opponents. Nothing personal, just business.

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

I thought the lack of promoting his return is what killed it, but Barrett isn't a multi-time world champ or anything. That sort of treatment is expected at this point. It doesn't mean Barrett won't get pushed. If anything his promo sort of confirms a title match, just not yet. As for the match itself, it was all it needed to be for a squash match. I'll take that match over any one of Ryback's shit. Let's be thankful Wade isn't going to be boring us with weeks upon weeks of squashes because he is far beyond that.

Pyro is definitely negative about Barrett, and he thinks Vince will never push him. I think whether or not Vince is biased (and I don't think he is) he WILL eventually push Barrett and make him a world champion. They're lacking in good heels, and anymore they've been pushing rather mediocre talents to the top. So if the mediocre can make it, then the ones that actually have something deserve to make it to the top too. Let's just hide and watch. It's the only way to know for sure.

And, who gives a crap about KO? Last I checked this wasn't about him. It was about Wade Barrett.

So true. I've watched Hero for over seven years and I've been almost hopelessly underwhelmed by him since joining the FCW roster. There have been some flashes of the old Hero but they have been few and far between.

Do agree about the theme. Barrett needs a much, much better theme. "End of Days" seems like a masterpiece compared to what he's had ever since.

I've seen Hero on the mic during his indy days and he's very average. Who cares if Barrett "stole" his gimmick? 1. He didnt and 2. Even if he did, it doesnt matter, since Hero might as well just not exist in the WWE.

For some reason, I expected a little more. But this was alright. He came back, destroyed a jobber, announced that he's in business.

I like his new look and moveset. Lots of fierce hard strikes, simple and effective. As for his finisher, nothing too special, but I can see him changing the way he does it depending on the context of the match. Similarly to the way Randy sometimes does an RKO to someone jumping off the top rope, Wade can find unique and interesting ways to use the rolling elbow.

I really don't like the theme song. It doesn't fit him, it doesn't sound very good, and I think it should be changed. For some reason, I was expecting him to come back with a new theme, but when Cole announced Wade was making his return after the break and they played that terrible song, I knew my expectation wouldn't be met.

I liked his return, more good than bad.
