Who the eff suggested that? A padded elbow? It makes Scotty 2 Hotties falling bitch slap look genuine.

Barrett should have been one of the great heels of WWE in mould of HHH,JBL.

He is the perfect example of WWE messing up a future star

Imagine him winning the world title with that stupid elbow.

Barrett can't even execute it properly. Just bring back wasteland, it may look weak but the way he does it was cool.

erm no. The peoples elbow was basically done to mock the opponent and hell its still an elbow to the HEART. Yeah I think if I dropped an elbow on to somebody it would hurt.

Re: Barrets elbow= one of the worst finishers in WWE?

There's worse finishers. My beef with it is how awkward it looks when he sets it up. It's not one of those finishers that can come out of nowhere and catch you by surprise. The only indication that he's about to finish someone is when he grabs their wrist and awkwardly twists their arm.

Could be better. Could also be alot worse.

Elbow to the head could knock you out cold. It's very believable finisher like KO Punch, Roundhouse Kick or other stiff strokes to the head.

Re: Barrets elbow= one of the worst finishers in WWE?

It can get over and has got over elsewhere. It's a decent move.

I do think it should have been a setup move though, a la Jake Roberts' short arm clothesline. See where it went from there.

BUT, I must give this to whoever came up with it, it's different. There are so many finishers similar to each other and that one is different.

Re: Barrets elbow= one of the worst finishers in WWE?

To be fair, a stiff elbow to the temple would put you down a lot quicker than most finishers. People just don't like it because it doesn't look fancy and that's more of a reflection on them than Barrett.

I don't mind the elbow as long as the Winds of Change happens right before it. People need to know when it's coming before it can get over.
