He doesn't always wear the coat, he only wore it because it was November and during the poppy appeal which remembers those who've died in past wars and they do this by wearing a poppy.

I'd prefer if he just came out and looked menacingly into the crowd and walked across the stage like in your sig, Big Dog and MAYBE do some trash talk to the camera. Might be a bit more bad ass.

Default Re: Wade Barrett Discussion

He used to be one of the more entertaining men in the WWE. After I came up with the idea to air vignettes of Wade's past fighting life, and weeks before the WWE did may I add, he hasn't really been much creatively. His depictions in the vignettes was "cool", but I don't think they needed to take his character that direction. My idea was more to express that he was tough, and not so much take on this fighting character. His character prior to the one he has now was fine, and his new finisher is awful.

Right now he is no more boring than Del Rio, or Ziggler. In fact the WWE's only real heel is the WWE Champion, CM Punk with Big Show a close second, with Bryan a close third. Other than that all the heels clearly don't stand out from one another. Wade needs to stand out, and the WWE needs a clear cut heel for the future like they had prior to his injury. I would say that Wade was missing Layla at his side, and even William Regal as his adviser. However, I would say that the WWE missed the boat on this one by not placing Wade in a program with the hottest superstar that they have right now.

Obviously, Ryback is involved with The Shield, but they weren't on televisions until two weeks ago. Wade, and Ryback have a history, and though the WWE doesn't want anyone to remember that it shouldn't have mattered. Wade could have based his come back on the premise of being the first man to defeat Ryback, and proving that he will prove once again that Ryback can be defeated. Hype up what Wade could have said about defeating Ryback, also known as Skip Sheffield. Barrett would claim to have real footage just in case people felt as though he had no integrity.

People say the WWE doesn't want to address this issue of Ryback, and Skip Sheffield. It's easy. Ryback surprised me when he finally cut a promo, he wasn't bad. Why couldn't he just say that yes, his name is Skip Sheffield, but when his career almost ended with his horrible foot, or ankle injury occurred he could say that he knew he needed to change. He could say that he knew he didn't make any real friends by attacking WWE legends, WWE superstars under the name Skip Sheffield. He says when he was younger his high school buddies called him Ryback.

Wade interrupts his "I'm a new man" speech, and airs the exclusive footage of him defeating Skip Sheffield. Ryback tells Barrett that his video is irrelevant now because Skip Sheffield was coward who followed other cowards like Wade Barrett. He tells Wade that Ryback is a machine with only one real solution, and that's feeding him more. Barrett cuts him off telling him to save it because he knows that Skip Sheffield is hiding underneath that fake identity of a "Ryback", and that there is a man inside that Ryback that can be defeated.

Barrett says that for months he had to sit back, and laugh because he couldn't believe that a man so barbaric, and unintelligent could amount to so much instant success. Wade goes on to say that before he was horribly injured he was going on to become WHC. He tells Ryback that it's an injustice that Ryback is in the position he is in currently today. Barrett suggests to Ryback that they have a match in a cage in which Wade says he will prove the world how to defeat, and then cage an animal like Ryback. Set up a feud with both men, and Wade moves to the next level in terms of credibility. Just the mere feud with Ryback, and build to a cage match even with Barrett somehow losing would still give him a positive push for top heel alone.

Default It amazes me that the leader of a dominant stable is not main eventing

Whether you like The Nexus or not, Wade Barrett was the leader of the dominant stable and I never seen a dominant stable have a leader who didn't become a main eventer after it disbanded.

It was a stable of rookies and the stable was built on strength in numbers. Most stables are usually created with an already main eventer at the helm. So the fact he hasn't yet become a main eventer is understandable and other than Daniel Bryan, he's the furthest up on the card of the members.

It was a stable of rookies but Barrett clearly should've went straight to the main event afterwards and should be the top heel in the company after CM Punk. He had the tools needed and the presence needed. Even though Barrett is not a jobber, he's really done nothing since Nexus disbanded. A throwaway IC title reign and having one real promising feud in about two years is sad. Since he's returned from injury, he's done nothing. He's feuding with Kofi over the IC title and it wouldn't surprise me if he losses Sunday. For his talent, Barrett should be a World Champion or at least the second top heel after Punk right now.

It doesn't surprise me one bit. Vince is racist against bare knuckle fighters and guys named Stu. Seriously, name one WWE champion named Stu. Don't hold your breath for a champ named Stu, bro. It'll never happen. Not with racist senile Vince in charge.

He was leading a stable consisting of Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, Darren Young, David Otunga and some other guy who got released. Pretty much equivalent in star power to 3MB. It's not really a surprise that Nexus failed or that Barrett was the dominant guy when you consider that.

If Barrett does anything to get over or make an impact, then he can advance up the card. At the moment he's just a stereotypical 'guy in trunks' and not really interesting at all.

Wade was on his way to MITB but unfortunately got injured. Now he has no momentum & no crowd reaction. This feud with Kofi could have been a good start to getting him some heat but neither has been given mic time to build this feud.

I'm thinking he'll get there in 2013 as long as he does get injure don into any trouble.
