Exactly. People have been bashing Barrett's ring work since the Nexus days. Now he's in a match against the World Heavyweight Champion and he has shown that he can go. Sheamus and Barrett's style mench well together and WWE should definitely consider this as a Wrestlemania main event.

Re: SPOILERS* Barrett on this week's SD

They fucked up with Barrett back when they screwed up Nexus. They had a chance to make him a big name but blew it so Cena could look good. Again.

I think he'll win the title eventually one day (half the roster seems destined to with the way they haphazardly book everyone) but this character is not working for him. I'd say bring him back with the suit and rose like when he first started on NXT and just start over but I'm afraid they'd make him too much like Sandow.

Re: SPOILERS* Barrett on this week's SD

He can still have the suit and rose with his current gimmick. It would add more to his character. I think he just needs to use more strikes and embrace that bare knuckle style by actually wrestling bare knuckled.

He also hasn't talked in ages. Talking is his greatest weapon.

Wow, by your logic, WWE didn't give half a fuck about HBK the last 8 or 9 years he was with the company.

[x] Wade Barrett wins any championship
[x] Dean Ambrose Debuts
[] Damien Sandow wins any championship
[] WHC and WWE Championship are unified
[] Christian wins another main event title
[x] Chris Jericho returns
[x] WWE Championship design is changed
[x] CM Punk vs The Rock

^ Shawn didn't want another world title reign.

Yeah, sure they didn't. He only won the world title a MONTH after he came back.

HBK repeatedly denied a world title reign, he was supposed to win the world title that Angle won when Batista got injured and gave up the belt but he said no. He could've taken it off Cena any time he wanted, I could go on. And no, it's not my logic because Shawn already DID win the title 3 times prior to him leaving. He was an established main event star, people with no world titles are not.

Oh, really, how is that? 2 DQ losses and a loss by pinfall to the same guy in under 3 weeks, how does that help? They won't let him go over Sheamus, not even once, not even in a flukish manner where Big Show costs him the match, which would both help Barrett AND push the feud at the same time, he's lost all 3 of the matches through one way or another and they've made him look exactly like the same, uncredible wrestler who's below all the main eventers as he was before he left, but it's even worse now because this character was supposed to be a better, more well booked, more dominant version of him, but it's not. Those segments where he went back to his roots to "re-ignite the flame" essentially meant nothing, because kayfabe wise, he's exactly as credible as he was when he left, which is hardly at all. He's essentially as credible as Ziggler, only he doesn't have a world title reign in his backpocket waiting to be taken at any moment, so when he looks like a fool it hurts him a lot more. Not to mention he's been complete throwaway, this feud is all about Big Show and he's just any random opponent who Sheamus has to get through to focus on Big Show who's portrayed as the real challenge.

Yeah, real help this has been. The only wonder this mini-feud has caused is wondering why the fuck it's been booked so badly.

Re: SPOILERS* Barrett on this week's SD

I dunno if you can even call it a feud, it just seemed to me Barrett was standing in for the Big Show because the Big Show is a one trick pony and can't do much else. Maybe Barrett will get rewarded for doing it so well, maybe not but at least he's been more relative recently and not just squashing jobbers.

Re: SPOILERS* Barrett on this week's SD

Then why the fuck is Big Show getting the title shot? If that's their thinking it should've been Barrett in the first place.

Whatever, WWE is absolutely incapable of making sense. There's no logical, well thought out, planned feuds at all, they just make everything up 10 minutes before the show goes on the air and they don't give a fuck. It's no wonder the ratings are what they are with shit like this going on.

Re: SPOILERS* Barrett on this week's SD

Losing to Sheamus isn't bad considering his status in the company, but like Clique said the creative team are burying barrett by giving him nothing interesting to do. What a fucking waste.

Re: SPOILERS* Barrett on this week's SD

Wade Barrett's in my top 3 but I'm fine with him losing the Sheamus for right now


I just hope when their actual WHC feud comes that Wade is booked strong
