Wade Barrett was regarded as “The Next Big Thing” back in 2010 when he made his debut alongside members of the “Nexus”. He was in the top storyline for WWE in the summer and beyond of that year. He had matches with all top superstars and was even included in a WWE title program with John Cena.
At this time, it looked like he could do no wrong and was going to be a huge superstar.
It is now 2014, and Wade is doing a bit called “Bad News Barrett” where he gives bad news to the live audience in the arena.
He has gone through several gimmick changes in four years. The United Kingdom star has gone from the top all the way to the bottom.
At this point, why should he be a part of the WWE roster if they are going to have a guy that talented be wasted on TV every week? From being the leader of the “Nexus” and “The Corre” to The Barrett Barrage and now being the “Bad News Barrett” character. What are you doing?
Yes, he has had some injuries that have sidelined him in the past, but that does not give a reason for someone as talented as Wade Barrett be wasted over and over again.
Everyone gets injured, some more than others. When there is talent in someone then you go with it. Not trash on all of it. Wade has turned most gimmicks into gold, but this “Bad News Barrett”character is going nowhere and is on a nose dive going down in a fast pace.
At this point, for his own good, Wade Barrett should be released. In a year or two, re-sign him when you have something real for him.
