8. Wade Barrett

Wade Barrett

From feuding with John Cena to becoming an irrelavant Intercontinental Champion, Wade Barrett is going through a period right now of uncertainty. He defeated The Miz one night after losing the championship at Wrestlemania. What has he done since then? Absolutely nothing. Once seen as the gem in Nexus, one could argue that he is second or third fiddle from that group. Barrett has the size, the tools, and the look to be really good. The problem is WWE does not know what do with him. Does the long black jacket really work with his gimmick? Give him a leather or jean jacket to look more of a brawler. His character is stuck because he A. does not have faces that are over in the mid card and B. His gimmick makes no sense. I want to see him used more and he desperately needs a good feud.
