    It’s not like he was the leader of a stable that was put in a feud with the top star in the company straight away. Oh shit that actually happened guess Wades a big deal.

  • The Showoff

    Wade is great and wasteland is a sick finisher

  • The JackOff

    @ the dude @The Awesome One/ Yes Barrett was the original supposed winner…until Ziggler rag-dolled/oversold/spazzed/stroked-out on Barrett’s arm and just layed on his arm pretending to be unconscious like a dumbass while Barrett shouts ‘FUCK’ in pain! how does WWE punish Ziggler you ask? by giving him Barrett’s briefcase.

  • Bryan

  • Whatever

    Barrett, yeah, I don’t miss him like I missed Y2J, lesnar, triple h, undertaker, even orton and rey.

    He is talented but not a top star like bryan for example.
