Re: Wade's new gimmick is it hurting him in ring wise?

Have Barrett knock out show and use that as his finisher. Never understood how he is a former bare knuckle.brawler but has an elbow shot as his finisher. I used to think he sucked in the ring but he is actually decent and can have some pretty good matches.

Wade Barrett was awful in the ring before and he is awful in the ring now, anyone who thinks he puts on some decent matches are nothing more than blind marks. WWE needs to give this guy a lot more mic time because it's the only thing he is good at.

It would have been an OK gimmick had it been given full backing on his return, where he actually knocked out a couple of higher end mid-carders within weeks or returning, instead of the "open for business" promo and then petering out into no main feud, any real match or viciousness in victory against anyone of significance.

He needs to stop appealing directly to the audience like an attention-seeking toddler.

He's meant to be a no-BS, bare knuckle boxer. So book him in a proper feud and make sure the only thing he talks about is how he's going to ram his elbow through his oppoenent's skull.

Make him into a monster.

Absolutely.

Guy comes out after a six month absence and says, "I'm open for business. Someone please fight me."

Cue tumbleweed.

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.

He needs an opportunity. And I guess it starts coming to him lately...
