Continued, pushed, you know what I meant.

Barrett's return push has been WEAK. They obviously have no intention of putting him in the title picture.

Like I said I think they want Sheamus/Del Rio to be one of "those" legendary epic feuds, and the second they pull the plug on it Barrett is their next in line.
Are you sure about that? Are you sure it's not the guy with the briefcase?

Not to mention, there's all these reports that Orton is turning heel by the end of the year, and if that happens, you can scratch out any hope Barrett has of main eventing.

Even if he got the main event, what the HELL makes anybody think he's beating Sheamus? The guy is practically invincible.

Re: Will Barrett ever be World Champion?

If we're looking at dirtsheets, put equal stock in the reports that say WWE are high on Barrett and looking for him to have a world title run. Ziggler will be a hiccup in Sheamus's path of destruction, that will take a month or two tops because WWE don't have faith in him yet. I believe the REAL next in line will be Barrett. Or he might just get Ziggler treatment, who knows.

I do feel like WWE are in a situation where they have Barrett at A and want to get him to B, but aren't coming up with the right thing for him. The new bare knuckle return gimmick is something, but it seems other than that they're stuck on him.

Re: Will Barrett ever be World Champion?

Not untill Vince loses control of the company. Pyro says it all. They gave him like a million title shots and he didn't even win one title. I hate to say it but I actually still have some hope that he gets it in the next year or so. It's stupid of me and i'll be dissappointed again.

Re: Will Barrett ever be World Champion?

Well at first I had no doubt but while I'm happy he's playing what I believe to be a better gimmick, it may be a test for him because if it doesn't get over, WWE may begin to invest less in him. He should get a World Heavyweight Title reign though.

Re: Will Barrett ever be World Champion?

Yes, he will almost certainly win the World Title. They'll probably Swagger him up with it or maybe even give him a Christian-esque reign as cowardly heel against superpowered Sheamus, but he'll win it for sure. It's not even a huge booking decision to do it, the world title is basically a midcard title - they could book Heath Slater to win it tonight and it wouldn't look any better or worse, but that's just my opinion on the title.

As for the WWE title... WWE are much more selective when it comes to that, so who knows? At the moment in his 'squash match re-debut' position, he isn't going to go anywhere near it.
