Bad News Barrett could be the funniest gimmick in a lifetime.

Discussion in 'RAW' started by Crayo, Mar 3, 2014.

  1. Was speaking to @Rysenberg earlier about this, but how awesome would it be if he would just appear in random backstage/ring segments? Like, the unrealism of not noticing this fat ass podium there would be comedy gold. Can you not imagine some jobbers like Sheamus and Big Show having an argument, and boom this podium appears right beside them backstage where Barrett cuts this bad news promo.

    He's so damn good at it too. Barrett, marry me, you sexy beast. We need a smiley of the podium rising with him on it too.

  2. That's what he's been doing on the JBL and Cole show for months leading up to his TV debut (sans podium). Just show up like a ghost to deliver bad news, then disappear into the night.
  3. I'm really bored of BNB now. I'd prefer it if he mocked WWE related issues rather than just talking about a news topic and adding something negative about Americans on the end, which the crowd doesn't care about. Soon someone needs to come out, interrupt him, and challenge him to a match. Pathetic gimmick that will be laughed at in a few years time.

  5. Too big to add, but I love it.
  6. @Crayo: You just like him because he's English.
  7. It's one of the reasons, but not the only reason :smug:

  8. I didn't really think it was all that funny until at the PPV when he got stuck, and he came up with something so witty and on the spot that I laughed pretty hard. It was something like" i've come down to your level." Wish I could remember the quote now, because I sound like i'm just rambling on about nothing.

  10. It was at the Elimination Chamber PPV. Did you watch?
  11. I was just about to quote! I remember now, that shit was hilarious. I had to re-cap all the times BnB was on screen.

  12. lame gimmick lame thread lame thread starter

    Show Spoiler

    nah but this cracked me up pretty hard

  13. The thing wouldn't go up, so he just said "I have come down to your level to deliver some bad news to Daniel Bryan fans!" You got the quote right.

    If given actual relevant material and backstage segments and not just saying "lololol you gonna die of a heart attack" it could indeed be one of the best gimmicks ever.

  14. He needs to be shooting on vanilla midgets like DZ and DB. Sort of like Batista, only it makes me want to kill myself less.
  15. Bad news barret is alright at best. He annoyed the shit out of me at EC. After every fucking match his music hits and that damn podium appeared. Only funny on occasion.
  16. This gimmick is awesome. Barrett is getting over thanks to his smug, cocky heel persona that you can't help love as he looks like he is having such a blast under this reinvention. How far this can go who know but Barrett is a dude who with the changes in WWE at the min and guys like Cesaro and Bryan receiving huge pushes is a man who can thrive. Personally I'm all for it always been a fan of his and hell when a performer enjoys what they are doing it shows and makes it all the more entertaining.
  17. Yeah, as said, it's a pretty good idea and Wade's great at doing it. They just have to give him better material.
  18. #BNB fuckin' rules!
  19. At first I was skeptical, but the gimmick ended up growing on me, the crowd seems to like it too, I think I'm just a mark at heart, thank god(Me) for that
  20. Take it back, heel Batista could put on a t-shirt and it would be funnier than anything Barrett does
    Enlighten yourself to Austin circa 96-97 when he was given the green light to talk as he pleased
    Finally, nothing beats Mark Henry .... pretty much ever
    Mark Henry outrunning Nexus...

    Mark Henry blowing sh** up ...

    Mark Henry rubbing Orton. The least boring Orton has looked since 09 (watch referee Charles Robinson...

    Barrett is a fantastic talent, for sure. He should have had the gimmick Orton had with the authority. The NXT season 1/Nexus/Bryan firing could have fit well with the Authority angle
