There is no other explanation for how terribly he has been handled since the original Nexus broke up. Let's start with the Nexus break up, shall we? Why in the everloving fuck was CM Punk ever inserted into that storyline? We had been treated to 6 months of WB being the evil mastermind badass motherfucker, getting the better of many-a-WWE Superstar (including Yawn See Na, before See Na ultimately buried WB--- literally under a bunch of folding chairs) and the Nexus storyline had already been run into the ground by A.) Them not putting the title on Barrett and B.) Them losing all of the important matches that they should have won. But that is another story. We are talking post Nexus now, after Barrett was completely made to look like a bitch at the hands of CM Punk Next they give WB the Corre. On the surface a spin off of Nexus with Slater, Gabriel, and the newly added muscle of Zeke didn't seem so bad-- but boy was it. First off, Zeke is a shithead. Just had to get that out there in case someone hadn't noticed. The Corre theme song was all time terrible. The Corre didn't start off so bad (besides their promos consisting of bla bla bla we are all equals-- that was unbearable). But the idea of throwing the IC belt on Barrett was fine. That is the only positive I have to say about the Corre. To call WB's IC Title Reign a disaster would be a borderline compliment compared to what it actually was. ***But before I continue on WB's pointless title reign*** The death of the Corre. I understand the Corre didn't literally die at WM, but they died in my eyes. I was still trying to root for the Corre going into WM 27 because I was a massive Barrett mark at the time. Then the 8 man tag match happened, with Big Show and a bunch of other goons burying the Corre in a 90 second finisher fest . I know I am pretty well known for my hyperbole, but I shit you not that match lasted 1 minute and 35 seconds. Speaking of WM 27, that SHOULD have been Barrett's shining moment. You see, it is my belief that the Miz got the title reign that should have gone to WB. Barrett was the best thing in WWE in 2010 and it wasn't even close. He should have taken the belt off of Orton at Survivor Series and carried the strap until Mania. It only makes sense, right? Put the belt on your newest, hottest commodity? But no, we got the Miz vs Cena at Mania instead in one of the worst Main Events I can recall at Mania. But I digress. The Corre. WB's IC Title run. What in the fuck. He beat Kofi for the belt. He beat Kofi again. No feud mind you, just random matches. Then they decide to kick Zeke out of the Corre (a good idea for once) and it sets up the one feud of his IC Title run with Zeke. A feud that would go on to make WB look like a complete pussy. He challenges Zeke to a match, is getting whooped, and the Corre attack. WB loses, but retains. WB then has another match with Zeke, gets fucked up and counted out. He loses, but retains. He finally loses cleanly, evokes his rematch clause on SD and lost cleanly again. WB ladies and gentleman was completely buried by Ezekial fucking Jackson. Then began the Barrett Barrage, the closest thing to decent booking poor Wade has received since the earliest days of Nexus. It started off pretty blandly, he shits on the Corre and says he is going to be running shit. All fine and well. But did he? lol. Guess He starts talking shit about MITB. I was CONVINCED. 100%. YOU COULD NOT TELL ME. that WB was't going to win MITB. I felt in my heart of hearts that he had been ROBBED of a WWE Title run in 2010, and thought surely WWE will make it up to him. he will become the evil face of SD and run shit for a while before getting back on Raw to the ME scene there where he belongs. right... right???? Of course DB went on to win, which in hindsight is fine because obviously they've made a star of the guy. But what became of WB after MITB????? Well first WWE gave my balls a little tickle by letting WB go over Bryan cleanly at MITB. But it was nothing more than that. A ball tickling. What did his big win at SS 2011 lead to? Being jobbed out to Sheamus in a retarded minifeud. Lovely thus began the barrett barrage, which for months was him squashing Trent Barretta esque jobbers. He then feuded with Orton, won a retarded elimination match at Survivor Series, threw orton down some stairs, and then jobbed to him when he came back. Easily the best thing that's happened to Barrett since Nexus was the ending on SD when he threw Orton down the stairs, but that was forgotten because Orton beat Barrett in the feud blow off.. and he beat him... on SD I mean wtf??? Barrett takes his ass out of action for idr how long, but they can't even put the blow off to that feud on a PPV? Makes no sense. Oh and then he was eliminated by Santino at the EC. San. Tino. You can't make this shit up. Then to accelerate this longwinded post he fucks his elbow up, disappears and returns WITH some sick ass return vignettes OMG we all thought. What could this lead to?!?!? Should be amazing, what a sweet vignette! Back into the abyss to reignite the flame? Fap fap fap. And now he is squashing jobbers, has no momentum, and even the most hardcore Barrett marks are left with no explanation and little care for what happens next. In addition to his booking it is the simple things that WWe does to him that blow my mind. How hard is it to find this guy a decent theme? If I made a list of the 5 worst themes in WWE over the past two years 3 or 4 of them would belong to WB (or the Corre). And now he is given the LAMEST finisher of all time... and he names it the souvenir. Now, even I, the biggest WWE hater around, do not think that there is ANY way for WWE to be this inept. So it is my new belief that WWE for some reason hates WB, and they just want his career to be a major flop. because if this is truly WWE attempting to get him over and give him a successful run.. then even I have underestimated this shithead companies incompetence. tl;dr. Just a long rant basically. Fuck you WWE. Sorry about your damn luck, WB.
