WWE has no clue what to do with Barrett. He should be a top heel but they refuse to book him as such. So he's left to job to anyone and that devalues the midcard title that he is currently holding.
Word. (Do people say that?)

Because maybe the writers are realizing that barrett is a no-charisma, untalented, bag of Zzzzz's that will never get anywhere.

I've been wondering about that for the longest time: WHAT ABOUT THE FRIGGIN COAT? I read Vince was annoyed about non-consistent gimmick parts when Barrett is concerned - does Barrett himself think though: "I'm gonna keep it! Fits PERFECTLY into my fight club character!" or is creative really so stupid and is it their fault? All in all, his gimmick STILL needs so refinement, although it has improved already.

I thought the bit where Jericho and Barrett faced off was the hottest part of the whole promo, the Miz sucked dick but Jericho and Barrett had real heat. If Swagger can get a push then it's only a matter of time before Barrett gets a real push.

They not really turning him into a full fledged comedy character, but they are just making Barrett out to be some big punk with having numerous babyfaces laughing and bullying him every chance they get. It worked with Kurt Angle and even today with Daniel Bryan but for a guy like Barrett? Itís pathetic and stupid. Wade Barrett character is suppose to be portrayed as a underground bare-knuckle fighter and suppose to be taken seriously. But unfortunately that is out of the works and his character has been ruined for months now anyway.

It was terrible, but to be fair that was mostly because of Maddoxx.

I doubt he will even be on a WM card, probably in a preshow or something.

It's a shame what they're doing to him. The guy could be a main eventer for yrs. to come and instead they book him as if he's a joke, shame really.
