They gave the belt to Christian as a thank you for 10+ years of service, here's 2 nothing Title reigns kinda thing. It may well have even been a favor to Edge, but bottom line is, he got it.
It was a favor to Edge. They weren't just gonna fuck Edge in the ass and have Del Rio win. No, they didn't "HAVE" to I guess but Vince at least respects Edge, so he gave him a gift.
Who the fuck does Barrett have to do that for him? Last I checked, he wasn't best friends with Cena or Punk or Orton or anybody else who's a major main eventer and is going to have a career ending injury. He's fucked, and the fact that you're still holding out hope for something that's never going to happen is beyond me. WWE books Barrett no different than they ever did Morrison, he gets pushed for a couple months, then buried for a couple months, then pushed for a couple months, then buried for a couple months, and every time his fans think "THIS IS IT! FINALLY!", WWE knows they have the fans by the balls and they fuck with them again.
I think I remember you posting that you would never watch TNA, but if Barrett was released by WWE and signed there, would you then?
No. I've had people join TNA who I was higher on than Barrett, like Kennedy, Christian and Angle and I still never watched it. I will never watch a non WWE wrestling product because it does not matter. If TNA wants my business, start beating WWE in the ratings and the PPV buyrates, until then, never.
