How many gunshot wounds does it take to buy a near-fall?

Re: Idea, Barret shouldn't pin anybody
I don't really care for the referee stoppage thing, it didn't get over with Tensai (granted, nothing with Tensai is gonna get over) and I don't really think matches should end with knockouts unless it's a Last Man Standing or something that fits. I'd prefer if he just got on top of the guy and started punching him in the liver or something until the guy tapped out. It could be like a submission, but not an actual submission. It would give him a unique way of using the bareknuckle fight gimmick without using the WMD.

but that only goes so far. Is Barrett going to go into a match with Sheamus and knock him out? absolutely not.
Cena? No. Punk? No. It would make the WWE's top stars look bad. I don't care if he starts out doing K.O's at every show against Yoshi, Zack Ryder, Tyson Kidd, Gabriel, Riley, but when he gets into the ring with more established guys like Cody Rhodes, Rey Mysterio, The Miz or whoever, do you really think he is going to knock them out?
I think they are saying that he is trained in that, so wrestling should be easy to him because he has a true fighters back ground. I highly doubt he's going to come in and just drop a dude and attack him with fists of fury while theres blood spewing all over the ring.
jesus. Why does everyone have to bash any attempt the WWE makes at an original idea as being corny? I know they are throwing some stuff at the wall to see what sticks, but give them a chance. They have made stars out of less.
