Wade Barrett was brought in the WWE with great expectations and got a solid start in his WWE Career starting off as the leader of Nexus, but it never got flying after that with failure after failure halting his momentum. 

Despite having some success with the “Bad News” gimmick, WWE just couldn’t seem to use it in his favour. Here is a video of the debut of ”The Nexus” under Wade’s leadership which was one of the most iconic moments of the PG era:

Barrett has been one of the most underrated performers in the WWE in recent times. He does seem to have all the ingredients required to achieve success in the business. This tweet sums it up:

Several stars voiced their opinion regarding Barrett’s exit from the WWE, this video below is Bret Hart’s say on the matter:

With the brand split, WWE are in need of superstars and Barrett might be the perfect candidate after having experience of working in the WWE before. Smackdown Live! must be the ideal choice and he can fill the slot in the upper mid-card or even in the main event. 

This can be WWE’s chance to correct their mistakes and with the right measures, Barrett can live up to the fullest of expectations.
