Wade Barrett at ER

Well that just shows you how damn much WWE thinks of their IC champion, instead of defending his title at the ppv he's on a damn panel discussing the show. Did he get injured or is it WWE just not giving a fuck as usual?

I mean Jesus give the damn belt to someone who's getting pushed, like Fandango or at least someone WWE half way gives a fuck about cause its obvious they could care less about Wade Barrett. You know the IC title used mean something it was that title a young promising superstar held that meant he was gonna go on to bigger and better things. Now its just something a wrestler carry's around, like a coat or a hat.

Re: Wade Barrett at ER

Yeah, I don't know. His two latest IC Runs have been the worst in years. They aren't pushing him nor the title, what is the points?

They destroyed him now the belt is going with him.

Re: Wade Barrett at ER

Who does he have to feud with though? Seriously, the mid card is absent. It's basically Kofi Kingston, and The Miz.

It looks to be Sin Cara, since he recently beat Barrett on Main Event. Hell they could have at least had some interaction between them at the ppv, or something anything instead of just sticking the IC champion on some damn lame panel talking about matches. Honestly it wouldn't surprise me if they just slowly tried to get people to forget about the IC belt and it just disappears quietly.

My point is that Barrett is above a Ryder, or Sin Cara. The mid card division is thin. They need stars like Ohno, Neville, and Steamboat up on the main roster now to give the mid card some competition.

Exactly those guys would do wonders for the mid card, but WWE is just too damn blind to realize what a desolate wasteland their mid card is right now. But they should at least have Wade doing something, even if it was just a throwaway match with Sin Cara or just an interaction to remind people he's the IC champion, cause they've probably forgotten he is.

They could have had him wrestle on the pre show instead of that pointless Miz vs Cody match.

Re: Wade Barrett at ER

I know this sounds way to obvious, but I truly think he, and Regal would work well with another. These two men need to start a bit of a campaign against Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Wade would take on a bit of a shoot with the acting CEO of the company, and call him a liar, a hypocrite, and even a racists. Barrett points up to the titantron, and shows footage of Vince telling William Regal to pucker up, and kiss his ass. Barrett points out how this is truly contradictory to their recent anti-bullying campaign. For weeks Barrett would come out, and disgrace the McMahon's. His mic would be cut at certain points making it seem more real.

Wade would say that Vince is a racists towards the English, and it's the reason there has never been a English born professional wrestler to win the WWE world title. He starts naming all the great English wrestlers that Vince had signed, and never gave them a chance ever at the WWE championship. Wade says, but of course Sheamus, the Irish Warrior is given the opportunity for gold. He talks about Sheamus being buddies with HHH, and those two working out together on the road. Barrett says it must be nice having favorites. Give Barrett an entourage because he carries that kind of Swagger about himself, and he stands out more around others. These folks would eventually turn on him based on his own arrogance, but Neville, and Grey would be perfect for Barrett to have at his disposal.

Barrett tries to pick a fight with HHH, but knows HHH is recovering from his battle with Lesnar. Possibly calling out HHH in the process of disgracing the McMahon family. HHH would finally address Wade. He informs Wade that he has been listening to everything he has said, and realized Wade is missing something. He tells Wade he is missing competition, and that HHH himself is partially to blame. He informs Barrett that this will change, but more importantly Wade should think of all the wrong he has done in his past because it might come back, and spit fire back in your face.

This sets up the debut of Richie Steamboat. If you remember Wade Barrett as the leader of the Nexus had Richie's father Ricky The Dragon Steamboat beaten to a pulp. This accidentally would lead his father to end up in the hospital, due to real injuries sustained. This could be brought back into the spot light, and hence be reference to what HHH was saying about fire. I would have the lights go out, and have Richie spew fire into the face of Wade Barrett, missing him on purpose, but giving him fair warning that the Dragon is near. Richie would tell his story of vengeance through feuding with Wade Barrett. Steamboat would say that he has found peace with everyone else except Wade, and wanted to know why Barrett refused to apologize for his actions.

Re: Wade Barrett at ER

Thats actually a great idea, and it would do wonders for Barrett and make him interesting again like he was as the leader of Nexus. It would be a brilliant idea to use the whole thing about an English born wrestler has never held the WWE title, with Barrett. Like you said it would be a great way to bring in Adrian Nevill and Oliver Grey, they could be sorta like the British Invasion. And yeah you could also bring in William Regal to be the manager of the group.

Re: Wade Barrett at ER

It's not even just the fact he doesn't have a lot of opponents, but the fact that the creative team puts absolutely NO EFFORT into producing any sort of storyline for the mid-card. Even The Shield doesn't really have a storyline going on... they just beat people up and look badass doing it, but that's it. Nothing for people to sink their teeth into. All the creative ideas for storylines, if one ever comes up, is put into only main event feuds. Otherwise the storylines suck, are used only for veterans, or don't exist at all. It's just Guy A vs. Guy B. I actually enjoyed Swagger/Del Rio when it first started for the fact there was something going on as opposed to just Swagger/Del Rio happening to be opponents for Mania. Swagger and Colter were rebelling against everything Del Rio stood for, about living the American Dream as an immigrant, and they were going to take the World Title to restore credibility to the "once great land". That was refreshing to see a feud not on the top level being given something like that for the first few weeks before they lost sight.

Of course that was a World Title feud, you'd never see anything like that involving the US and IC Titles nowadays, and it's why a guy like Barrett can't get any sustainable heat. I mean when he was given the chance to be the top heel in an interestingly fresh storyline, he succeeded and became the most hated man in the business as the leader of Nexus. He got a ton of heat. That's what Barrett is capable of, and it's entirely on creative that he hasn't reached that level since. Barrett himself can only do so much. It's not like he's been given Del Rio/Sheamus treatment and still fails to get heat (like Del Rio, and Sheamus when he was a heel). He has all the tools necessary. Excellent on the mic, has some great presence, has some charisma, and despite popular belief, he's capable of having good matches (against Sheamus, Kingston, Mysterio, Ryder, and even the match with Miz the night after Mania was pretty good), and even great ones with the right opponent (which again, despite what some would think, isn't the case for everyone).

So hopefully WWE wakes up and puts the World Title on him before the end of the year. He should've had it back in 2011 at some point, but WWE fucked up all his momentum in a piss poor attempt to Ezekeil Jackson over.

Edit: Great idea Truk83, but again, because it would involve putting the spotlight on two mid-card and below talents, it would never happen.

I'm watching you...

Re: Wade Barrett at ER

Even more ridiculous was the fact that The Miz and Cody Rhodes made the pre-show.

At the very least, would it really have hurt to have chucked Barrett in that match and make it a triple threat? It's not exactly creative but at least gets your supposed midcard champion onto the PPV.
