    Wade Barrett Return

    So with Barrett away dealing with visa issues, there's talk that they're going to re-package his gimmick when he returns (which will inevitably include another theme change LOL).
    Question is, what gimmick will he be given? Do you think he even needs a gimmick change?

    Personally, I don't think he needs a repackaging. I think the bare-knuckle brawler gimmick fits him fine. I'd like to see him doing the 'Bad news Barrett' thing he's been doing on the JBL and Cole show. Here's the video summarizing that:




    I know that they've said that this likely won't happen, but I would like to see him incorporate this into his gimmick. I think it's pretty funny and entertaining!

    I really thought the bare knuckle brawler gimmick suited him just fine. It was just a lack of midcard talent that hindered that gimmick from getting over. Lack of talent and booking, means no real interesting feud to be developed.

    Team him up with Punk. I think these two could (and have had) some decent chemistry.

    For me it comes down to direction. I feel like during the last period where wade was back after his injury he started strong but with no real direction he fizzled. I'd like to see him get into a program with punk, or maybe even mysterious when mysterious returns

    i don't think he will be repackage. everytime a wrestler isn't on tv for a little awhile ryan clark always report oh there getting repackage. he did the same thing with Drew. but Drew is back and is in the same gimmick.

    they should just make Wade the main heel on smackdown

    In my opinion, he does need a repackaging. He needs something to make him interesting. Not a dancing gimmick or something with silly flashy outfits, but something that will make him stand out a little more. Just going with the bare knuckle fighter thing only puts him in Bart Gunn territory.

    With too many people running around with no gimmick, nothing catchy on the mic, and just going with either their own name or standard name, he gets lost in the shuffle. How can he escalate when there's nothing about him that makes him different than anyone else on the roster?
