Like Sheamus, Wade Barrett immediately made an impact upon his debut. As the leader of the vicious Nexus group, Wade lead a revolt against WWE, and most importantly, John Cena. It seemed as if Barrett was destined for the WWE Championship, but somehow, that never happened. Wade lost control of Nexus and shifted over the WWE's B Show, Smackdown. He tried recreating Nexus with the Corre, but that was nothing more than a bust. Barrett's once-promising career looked to be in for a troubling end.
However, a few months back, the Barrett Barrage began. Wade went on a roll, picking up countless victories before entering a rivalry with the Viper, Randy Orton. Wade actually got a clean pin on Orton at Survivor Series, which very few can claim to have done. However, since Orton has been out with an injury, Wade has lost direction going into the Royal Rumble. A win at the Rumble is possible, but with Daniel Bryan as a heel, it isn't quite as likely. So why not pit him against the Phenom?
A match between Taker and Barrett would be logical, as the two have a history. Nexus had attacked Taker at Bragging Rights, but it was never explained. A feud between the two could finally shed some light on the incident. Not to mention they could easily pull of a WrestleMania classic.
Both men can buildup a match perfectly with their mic skills and don't disappoint in the ring. I would love to see these two go at it on the grandest stage of the all. The Barrett Barrage vs The Streak.....What a match it would be!
