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

That Barret vs Sheamus match was meh,I'm happy we didn't get 6 months of that shit, people on this forum has a thing for stiff matches but that shit was fucking boring to me, a feud between Barret and Sheamus would make me get into hiatus, yes Barret is great on the mic but what's the point when Sheamus never sells on promos with his goofy smile.

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

Del Rio is a good talent, but his weak mic skills and personality affect his other abilities. He accomplished a lot in one year he should turn face maybe it can work. As for now Him, Ricardo, and Christian as a comedic and a strong team, will be great for the tag team division.

That would have been interesting to see in fact. Barrett would be pretty huge if his career went like that.

in fact Edge/Del-Rio was one of the most awful WM main events ever, only second to Miz/Cena on the same WM.
You're mistaken there. Disappointingly/underwhelmingly short maybe, but a nicely worked match nonetheless.

Total contradiction right there,also del rio has had one of the best matches of last year with christian in the ladder match that was praised by so many on here.Del rio is not main event talent but to say he is only capable of memorable matches with punk is ludicrous.

yeah Christian, that ladder match was great because everyone was loud for the match, wanting to see Christian finally become World Heavyweight Champion, the opponent was almost irrelevant.

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

I actually like Del Rio, the guy was saddled with a shitty gimmick but still makes it believable, it's hard to get over when they had him become Sheamus's wiping boy for the last 4 months though. Seems like they dropped a lot of storylines with him for no reason, first the whole thing with Sheamus getting a tainted victory, and then banning the Brogue kick... in the past these things would lead to the heel getting the upper hand, even if only temporary. Now you just know every match ADR will work on the arm for 25 minutes, and out of no where he gets hit with the brogue kick and loses.

Wade Barrett isn't bad either, I dunno though, this guy seems like he's in the Cody Rhodes realm where he really has no gimmick but is just a mean guy lol. In this era, to be a heel, you almost need some corny bubble gum gimmick like Daniel Bryan has - don't get me wrong, I like the guy, but 90% of the people could give a shit less about the matches he puts on at this point, they just want to see his promo's and chant yes.

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

While both Barrett and Del Rio have been misused to some degree, Barrett has been far more under-utilized, especially since his return. He had the perfect angle in Nexus and with a WWE Championship run, that should've propelled him into a singles career but instead they take whatever heat he had with Nexus, put him with the Corre, and proceed to destroy it before allowing him to go out on his own. He flounders for months, then gets a winning streak going, feuds with Orton, ends up losing, and then loses pretty much all his matches until he was injured. Now he's back, and has already put on good-very good matches with Sheamus, Ryder, and Kidd. He's also proven in the past he can work a main-event style match with John Cena at HIAC, and Barrett is ten times the in-ring performer he was then. He's developed his game and improved greatly in the ring. He's still as amazing as ever on the mic and one of the best full time guys on the stick, has a ton of presence, and has some charisma as shown by his Nexus run.

But alas, he's doing nothing. Del Rio at the very least had been feuding with the face of SD for the better part of 5 months from April to September. Not to mention a year ago he was already a 2-time WWE Champion. But even during all of that, he still rarely got/gets heat, where with Barrett he's done nothing but either squash guys or be a jobber to the stars for the better part of 2 years. I'd kill to have Barrett get the push Del Rio got... to get 2 WWE Title runs and a lengthy feud with Sheamus where he gets in a lot of offense on Sheamus building up to PPV's. Of course I'd like Barrett to also actually win the title, but at this point I'd just settle with him being in he spotlight rather than compete in these pointless matches he's always in since his return.

I'm watching you...

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

The only time to truly have capitalised on Barrett's talents would've been Survivor Series 2010, which could've made him a true megastar over night, but no they botched it all up and I seriously don't think Barrett will ever reach that level again (which is such a ridiculous shame).

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

I have never read a title that made more sense.

Wade was huge as a heel in 2010, and given Del Rio's push, he would have taken it alot better than him.

It's still not too late though, he's 32, but seeing how he is being treated I don't see it happening soon. He came back, and what relevance has he made so far?

Yeah..

No. Del Rio is way better than Wade Barrett and that's a fact.
