Where to start with Wade Barrett?
Winner of NXT Season 1. After winning season one I was anxious to see where Barrett would end up. One night on RAW he showed up with fellow NXTers and destroyed CM Punk, John Cena and everything at ringside.
Barrett and his crew of bandits would reveal themselves as The Nexus and demand contracts. This gang would set their sights on WWE’s poster boy, John Cena. Nexus made Cena’s life a living hell and forced Cena to join their crew.
Barrett was fighting to win the WWE Championship. He feuded with Cena and Orton but always fell short.
Wade Barrett looked like he was going to be a top star in the WWE, until Cena destroyed Nexus from within.
Nexus members rebelled against Barrett and accepted CM Punk as their leader.
Barrett would vanish from RAW but reappear on Smackdown with Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater and Ezekiel Jackson to form The Corre—just another ball and chain used to hold Barrett under.
Barrett would win the Intercontinental Championship as Slater and Gabriel held the Tag Team titles. Major drop for Barrett.
The Corre hit a rough patch when they chose to pick a fight with Big Show.
Wade Barrett is the total package, he just needs one thing to put him over.
A feud with Cena or Orton or Big Show would be stale since its been done before. Insert Undertaker.
As I said, Barrett is the total package. He was a top heel in WWE last year with Nexus. He can be a top heel once again if he defeats The Streak.
Ending the Streak would draw a lot of heat on Barrett and maybe some gold too. World title gold.
