Default Wade Barrett should have gotten Del-Rio's push

Near the end of 2010, When Barrett was still hot/over from the whole Nexus angle, they moved him to Smackdown. This was the perfect opportunity to have made him win the Royal Rumble, the perfect follow up to the big Nexus push he got, but instead.....Del-Rio wins. Del-Rio over on smackdown was beating jobbers every week, not over with the fans at all, nothing unique or interesting about him, not even that credible (Only feud he won was with Rey), yet they chose to make him win the first ever 40-man battle royal, it was the perfect opportunity for Barrett to win. Then Barrett could have gone on to feud with Edge, Edge vs Barrett at that point would have been a much much more interesting feud than Edge vs Del-Rio ever was, in fact Edge/Del-Rio was one of the most awful WM main events ever, only second to Miz/Cena on the same WM.

With the same push, they could have made Barrett a star and Smackdown much more entertaining to watch. Instead we have Alboreto Del-Rio, a main event heel who even IWC doesn't care about.

I would argue that both men had their pushes botched, rather than Del Rio was undeserving of one. ADR was part of a pretty calculated, and smart, plan to break into the already-saturated Latin American wrestling market. He just got shit storylines.

Poor Wade was sacrificed on the altar of Cena, and never quite recovered from it.

This. Del Rio has shown glimpses of greatness, he's got all of the attributes, there's just been something badly missing from everything he's been involved in to the point where I just don't care about him, he's the type of guy I should like - He's got everything, you just barely ever see him used the right way, it's the same stuff over and over.

As for Barrett, yeah. He had the best storyline going, was carrying it perfectly, was emerging as a huge star before being inexplicably buried. It was incredible how the WWE managed to fuck that up. It's sad to see him now, not that he wont make it, just that he should so obviously already be there.

What I think would have been cool is that both of them got into a feud for the #1 contender spot. After 5 months, the better man, which in my mind is Wade Barrett, would win the WHC! Barrett has worked really hard previous to his break from the WWE and should have been WHC. Now that he is back, I want him to climb the ladder really fast as I feel he deserves it.

Americans as a whole may not care about Lucha Libre, Sin Cara, Cruiserweights, or guys with Latin wrestling backgrounds like the Rodriguez family (ADR & his brother in developmental, Guillermo) or the Colon family. But the market in the US has been on a decline, and the market in Latin America for wrestling stays booming.

WWE just doesn't know how to use them effectively yet.

Wade was still interesting despite his crap feuds with Big Show and Ezekiel Jackson following the Cena feud. Where as Del-Rio is given feuds with Cena, Sheamus, Rey, Orton, etc. and he can't make any of them interesting. I think its unfair to say Del-Rio got shit storylines, he got way more chances. He just can't put on good/interesting feuds.

Well, he won't.

No reason to fuck Del Rio, there's room for both of them. Del Rio is great regardless of what this forum thinks. If Barrett should've gotten anybody's push, it's that big, ghost white dope with the carrot patch for a hair due. Unfortunately, it's too late, he's not getting anything, they would've made him a star if they wanted him to be by now.

Personally, I think they are trying the branch out ethnicity wise so they don't seem "racist" because of how big the WWE has become. It was different back in the 90's because there wasn't very many foreign wrestlers. Also, it wasn't as big in other countries at the time.

Now however, there are Irish, Mexican, Italian, etc. wrestlers that now compete as main event superstars now as well mid cards. So that is why I feel Del Rio got the push due to the fact that WWE has expanded so quickly in Mexico. I can't say that I am against it as Del Rio is great in the ring and good with Mic skills.

But I still feel that Barrett should have gotten the push.

Why push a guy who got really over and was entertaining when you can push a boring drone who still isn't over after two WWE Titles, a Rumble win AND Money In The Bank!?
