Why an anchor?

I mean I know its meant to look like a W but honestly it just looks stupid to me and sends the massage that this guy is just dead weight

Yes and I've been very impressed by him which is why I'm confused as to why his shirt has something that has no purpose except to be dead weight as his symbol

Research on Anchors(well tattoo designs...but it is still a design nonetheless)

http://www.tattoos.net/articles/tattoo-meanings/anchor-tattoo-designs/

"Because tattoos originally gained popularity among sailors, who spread tattooing around the world, nautical symbols are some of the oldest modern examples of tattoo designs and have recently become trendy for non-sailors. An anchor holds a ship still, keeping the sailors safe from winds and currents that could drag them away. Because of this, anchors are traditionally associated with safe voyages, stability, and protection from adversity."

"Anchors are used both to protect travelers from a dangerous journey and to commemorate successful and safe return from travel. In fact, there is a tradition in the US Navy and among sailors around the world that a person can only receive an anchor tattoo once they have safely crossed the Atlantic ocean and returned home. This tattoo is a right of passage for people and represents a transition from novice to seasoned sailor. The tattoo of an anchor commemorates their safe return to port and is worn as a badge of honor and pride"

"The anchor is reliable, stable, safe, and unchanging. It keeps ships and people grounded and constant. In religious terms, the anchor is an ancient symbol used to represent a hidden cross. Like the fish, it symbolized that the wearer was Christian and faithful to the religion. They were safe and trustworthy and could offer other underground Christians refuge and solace. For early Christians, the anchor was a symbol of steadfastness, determination, strength, loyalty, and devotion. The surrounding currents and changing winds cannot move the anchor, and the faithful Christians could likewise not be moved or altered."

"For some, the anchor symbolizes a negative resistance to change and an inability, unwillingness, or refusal to adapt or adjust. People who feel trapped or stuck in the same place might choose an anchor to represent their current situation. A cracked, damaged, tangled, or broken anchor might portray their triumph over this stagnation and their success in adapting and developing as a person, becoming less stubborn or more open and adventurous. Contrastingly, someone with a turbulent past might get an anchor tattoo to honor their current stability or the person who keeps them grounded and safe. In relationships, anchors indicate that the significant other has a constant and positive presence in their loved one's life. It can also symbolize a person who refuses to stray and wants to remain faithful, loyal, and monogamous."

A lot of meanings behind the anchor but the bolded sounds reasonable to me on why Barrett has an anchor logo.

I remember watching smackdown and cole was talking about the anchor on his tights. Apparently it was the symbol for the polish revolution, and that wade had adapted that to his image.

It kinda does as a design. I guess we can just pick one out.

"The anchor was a symbol of steadfastness, determination, strength, loyalty, and devotion." Sounds like Barrett to me.

Doesn't say that he was military. Only a smart man. A degree in marine biology from the University of Liverpool.
