For Wade Barrett 2011 has been quite a year to forget. Ever since leaving Nexus and moving to Smackdown, it's been nothing but a downhill plunge filled with pointless title reigns and that horrible Corre Stable.
Barrett desperately needs to get back on track. The man is actually a very talented guy and is being horribly misused right now in the lower mid-card. It wasn't too long ago that the winner of the first season of NXT was headlining PPVs and leading the most powerful stable in recent WWE history. He was even heavily rumored to face The Undertaker at this year's WrestleMania, one of the highest honors a young wrestler like him could possibly achieve.
SummerSlam may just be the place that he starts his way back to the top. Barrett's starting to develop a very nice feud with Mr. Money in the Bank, Daniel Bryan, and if all goes well, this should be a nice stepping stone back into relevancy.
Hopefully the WWE hasn't given up on Mr. Barrett completely, and if they allow him to snag a win this Sunday, there will be nothing but good things on the horizon for the once main eventer.
Here are a few reasons why I think a Wade Barrett victory isn't just necessary, it's also almost a guarantee.
