Guy comes out after a six month absence and says, "I'm open for business. Someone please fight me."
Guy comes out again. "No-one responded to my offer last week. That hurts my feelings. But it's cool, it's cool... If someone would please
fight me now."
Again, no-one gives a shit and he's left looking like a paper condom blowing in the wind.
Then he comes out again. "Okay, I'm really bloody serious now! If no-one fights me, I'm going to have to start picking a fight!"
The result? He ends up feuding with l'il ol' Kofi Kingston.
Still, Kofi's IC Champ, and maybe Barrett can really get himself over during both this and future feuds. I just feel he could have been given a far stronger opening gambit than the one he was dealt.
