I admit, I am a fan.
I think Wade Barrett is the kind of wrestler the WWE needs. A throwback to the days of Bruiser Brody. A brawling style like that of Dick the Bruiser and Harley Race. A wrestler whose signature move to victory could be as vicious as an Ox Baker Heart Punch.
There aren't many like Barrett in the WWE, and for some unexplained reason, the company is wasting his talents and his chance to be a WWE champion.
Monday night's spot with Daniel Bryan may have proven more than at any one time that the former Intercontinental Champion is nothing more than a jobber right now, which is not fair to Barrett or the fans of the WWE.
At one point, as leader of The Nexus, it looked like the Brit would take this company by storm. An arm injury all but wiped out his 2012 wrestling year, one in which it looked like the WWE would strap itself to his back and see what he could do as the new top heel in the company.
It never happened. The company passed him by. Now, without a title and a spot in wrestling purgatory, what is the WWE going to do with a talent such as Barrett's? Here are a few ideas of how to get the most out of this superstar.
