These super tough guy repackages never work out. Didn't work for Ziggler when he returned to brown, shorter hair either.

You either had the gimmick or you don't.

Honestly, Barrett looks like a victim in all of these segments.

If this leads to him winning next week and defeating Jericho at Wrestlemania it will have been worth it.
Exactly, the problem with having an "arrogant side" in Barrett's case is that, aside of holding the IC title, he's been booked atrociously. What would he have to be arrogant about considering he's always losing him matches and constantly bullied by the faces. It's like WWE decided bare-knuckle brawler wasn't enough of a gimmick so they force him to take on the big movie star persona even though it doesn't fit him at all. And this entire "not in the trailer" gag has gone on for way too long, and it's made even worse how they just lazily pass it around to the faces just to really make Barrett look like a cunt. Miz stars in a shitty flop of a movie and it's nothing but annoying blind praise from Jericho, Barrett has a small part in a shitty flop of a movie and it's "hahaha, let's poke fun at him, what a loser!" It's an absolutely hypocritical, childish storyline (if you can even call it that, it's really just a weekly gag with seemingly no direction).

I could probably write a book on how illogical and pathetic Barrett's booking has been since his return (hell, even beginning with his return).

I'll ague worst booked wrestler this year. The year started out strong but they don't do anything with him, it's near pathetic.

His return was badly done as well. Did anyone want to see the Big Show as champion? Why not just give Barrett the main event push? He can handle it! It's infuriating.

Vince loves humiliating anybody who's even remotely entertaining. He did it with Punk before they were FORCED to push him, he does it with Sandow, he does it with Barrett, he does it with Riley, he'll do it with Ambrose once the Shield breaks up, he'll do it with Wyatt, and on and on. I've given up on trying to figure out specific reasons why this person or that person gets fucked. It's always the good ones, which means he's just a dimwit booker.

It just means you don't need wrestling ability or deep, interesting gimmicks, just elementary school jokes and a lot of air time.

I don't blame you. It must be tough, constantly having to come up with batshit loony excuses for why your favorite guys aren't wearing gold.

Couldn't you just use racism for all of them and call it a day?

I expect the abuse to stop soon if this report of a Jericho - Barrett () match at WM is true

Give me your theory then, since you seem to think you know everything.

The guy is trash, its no surprise he is being used this way. His delusional gimmick is fitting, he's like his marks who thought he'd be more.

I agree. He is alright on the mic but he bores me to tears in the ring.
