Re: How to make Raw better??
Barrett uses Voodoo
I have brought this up before, and so I will bring it up again. I think that the WWE should really take this Kofi Kingston vs Barrett feud to the next level. They just can't have matches with no substance. Right now that's all that they have done. There is nothing the WWE can do about Kingston just not having "it". However, Barrett does have "it", and I think he needs to prove to the wrestling world that he is not only potential to be a great "heel", but is cerebral, and will go to great lengths to prove his dominance. Incorporating "voodoo" may seem silly to you, but at least there is history of it in the WWE.
I think Wade should come down during Kofi's match, and interfere causing him to lose. Attack him, and then cut one of his dreads off. That alone is disrespectful, but little do we know what Wade is really up to. Barrett in a promo segment at the TLC PPV informs Kofi that he has no chance of walking out of TLC with the Intercontinental title. In essence Wade wins after Kofi some how manages to roll his ankle during the match which Wade is able to capitalize on. The following night on Raw Barrett is standing in the middle of the ring holding his new Intercontinental title. He tells the WWE fans that there is more to the eye here, and he is going to reveal that tonight.
Wade tells the fans that he has no regrets about what he had to do in order to obtain that title off of Kingston. Wade says that he wanted to spice things up a little bit, and decided to seek the help of a former WWE superstar. His name is Papa Shango. Barrett turns our attention to the big screen. We can see that Barrett is going deep in to what seems to be the swamps of Louisiana. Barrett explains to us that where he is going no man ever goes. Wade says that he is no normal man, and that it takes a man of great courage to do what he is going to do.
Barrett holds up the dread lock that he cut from Kofi's head, and tells the fans that this will all make sense once he arrives at his destination. Once arrived, Barrett slowly walks to the entrance of an old straw home. Obviously this is all staged. He walks in, and we are presented with former WWE superstar Papa Shango, who is nearly in a trance state. He hands Papa Shango the hair, and a ritual is performed live on Raw. It doesn't take long, and Shango does his thing with his laughs, and uttering of voodoo magic. Screen goes black, and that's all we get. Back in the ring, Wade informs us that Kofi has been cursed.
Barrett says that the only way Kofi will ever wear another title again is if Wade Barrett drops the curse. Wade says he has no reason to ever do that, and out comes Kingston. He tells Wade that this is all a bunch of nonsense, and that he rolled his ankle during the match, and that voodoo isn't real. Barrett laughs, and tells Kingston he can believe that all he wants, but he knows that it's real because it has roots in Ghana. Kingston says that yes it does, but it's considered taboo, and no one cares for voodoo anymore. Kofi tells Barrett that when he is healthy he will use his re-match clause, and obtain his title back from him.
There are a ton of things they can do with this to. With the Royal Rumble right around the corner. I could see Wade telling Kofi that if he helps him win the Rumble he will not only hand him over the Intercontinental title, but he will have the cursed dropped forever. Everyone has been questioning Kofi turning heel, but I think he could still remain "face". He would initially tell Barrett no, but then as the weeks progressed this "curse" begins to manifest itself in to Kingston's everyday life. He tells friends, tweets, and touts that he has had some interesting things happen to say the least. Perhaps he starts vomiting during matches? Thus having to forfeit. Will Kofi give in to Wade, or look to solve this curse on his own?
