Wade Barrett's character

In theory the Bairknuckle gimmick is good, but here's the problem, why should anyone hate Barrett? Why should I boo this man?

If anything he's more of a face simply because of how badass he is.

This for me is the main reason why he's not getting over. I put it predominantly on how weakly he is booked, i.e. he should be a ruthless brute who knocks out opponents but instead loses clean week after week.

What d'you guys think, should it be blamed solely on how he is booked or is Barrett himself at fault, could he/should he be doing more?

Re: Wade Barrett's character

His vignettes happened.
then he showed up and there has been no proof of said "character" since then.

Re: Wade Barrett's character

I said it one million times. WWE should mix the "manipulator with leadership skills" and the "bareknuckle brawler" characters to make the perfect Wade Barrett: A manipulative yet tough guy from the streets, some sort of gangster gimmick.

Re: Wade Barrett's character

It's his fault too. He never does something heelish. Instead of wanting Miz,Ziggler,CM Punk as faces you should want Barrett as face.

Fav 10: Cm Punk,Miz,Jeff Hardy,John Morrison,Zack Ryder,Cody Rhodes,A-Ry,Dolph Ziggler,Justin Gabriel,Seth Rollins.

Re: Wade Barrett's character

He just doesn't have the intensity to pull this gimmick off. He was great as the Nexus leader, but he really is so boring now.

U WOT M8??

Re: Wade Barrett's character

No matter how you want to think about it, Wade Barrett is a villain. He is one of the few stars that they have that I could never see as a "face". Wade is a true wrestling villain. The problem is that he has done nothing since his vignettes, and has hardly been this person that we saw in the videos. Bring back the coat over the shoulders, add a top hat, a rose, and the will to corrupt the WWE with his brilliance. Barrett needs to pick a fight with Vince, and start up the conspiracy that Vince is prejudice vs the English. This leads to Barrett vs HHH with Wade going over HHH.
