I disagree with that, Barrett is a smash mouth wrestler. He doesn't have a kind personality which is what I like about him. He is brutal and has major impact moves for the most part. Del Rio has a mean streak in himself too, especially with the cross arm bar. But I have to say that Barrett still has good ring skills as well as being good on the mic.

He just can't put on good/interesting feuds.
If Del Rio's not getting over as a heel, try him as a face.

Have JBL really talk up the family connection between ADR and some of the other great Mexican wrestlers - like he has been doing. Then have someone like his father, the original Dos Caras in Mexico, come and give one of those "Son, I am dissapoint!" speeches that Dusty will come and do with Cody when he's really doing wrong. Maybe play that video of ADR making the kid cry by ripping up his sign. Play all the clips of ADR being a cowardly heel. Maybe give a little speech about how if he knew this was going to be ADR's legacy, he never would have let him be Dos Caras, Jr.

Then, ADR has a soul-searching few weeks and comes out on the face team at Survivor Series, or runs in and helps save the day for the #1 face.

They already edit the overseas broadcasts, so the local heroes in whatever country come out as faces. So, why not try one of the foreign characters as a hero on US tv?

Re: Wade Barrett should have gotten Del-Rio's push

As for Barrett, he's not a great technical wrestler - but as a brawler style, he does excellent. His match with Sheamus last week was awesome. Putting him in the ring with a grappler is probably going to be a mess, but with another striker it turns out brilliantly.

Ironically i find Barrett's matches much more entertaining than Del-Rio's, just because Del-Rio is a better technical wrestler doesn't mean he's better, Barrett and his brawling style is also very good and fits perfectly in main event, can Del-Rio brawl better than Barrett? I don't think so. Overall Barrett has the main event factor that Del-Rio doesn't.

I know people will tell me its because i have never seen him as face before, but i personally don't think Del-Rio will be a good face at all. If he can't work as a heel, i don't think he has a chance of working any better as a face. Even if he does work, i don't get why he gets to have so many chances in the first place, he has proven to be dull in every single feud they've put him, he's done nothing memorable. He needs to prove himself before they push him, and he hasn't. I mean as someone else mentioned, if a guy barely gets over after a RR victory, two WWE title victories, four months as World title contender, he doesn't belong in the main event.

Re: Wade Barrett should have gotten Del-Rio's push

Del rio is a much better worker,technical skills have nothing to do with it.

i am not a big del rio fan but he has had good matches i cannot recall any memorable matches Barrett has had.Being a good worker is very important if they are going to give the top titles to someone.

I would not want to watch a Barrett title run that was at least five months long.Who cares if he can cut an outstanding promo thats not going to cover up his dire ring work.At the end of the day promos don't decide who is champ as matches still takes place and he is boring.

Promos do matter in WWE, specially for a main eventer. Plus, Del-Rio's only memorable match is the one with Punk at SS, and thats only because of Punk's skills and him finally winning the title back. Barrett however had very memorable/entertaining matches during Nexus, including SummerSlam, HIAC and Survivor Series. Del-Rio might be a good worker but he is downright boring, even if his matches were good i wouldn't watch them because he gives me no reason to care about watching him.

Re: Wade Barrett should have gotten Del-Rio's push

Oh, for sure. Del Rio is a bigger Tyson Kidd. He's below average on the mic, and probably the least charismatic worker on the roster. The fact that some people think he can actually cut a promo blows my mind.

Put Del Rio in the midcard, and let him work some solid matches, that's it.

Wade needs to be in the main event asap.

Re: Wade Barrett should have gotten Del-Rio's push

If they want to keep Sheamus as a face, then imo Wade Barrett would be the perfect nemesis to him, Brett had Michaels Rock had Stone Cold, Sheamus has Wade. I don't think Del Rio has enough potential where as Barrett has a lot in the form of improving his ring skills, you can teach rings skill, it's a lot harder to learn charisma.

Re: Wade Barrett should have gotten Del-Rio's push

Del Rio's had flashes of being highly entertaining. He simply needs the proper material/opponents. He's been gold for months now as a character.

Wade SHOULD have had a more sustained push (instead of falling off a cliff for a while post Nexus), but he shouldn't have "gotten Del Rio's push." He was arguably the most entertaining part of Smackdown at the time of his elbow injury, so don't think I dislike the guy. I've been a fan since his NXT debut. They're going to need both guys, so I don't see the problem.
