For those of you who are veteran readers of Cageside Seats, you know there's not a whole lot of support for Wade Barrett around these parts. Sure, he's got a fan or two who cruise the threads, but I've long decried his position in WWE simply for the fact that his character, well, sucks.
But no longer.
That's because the writers of the JBL & Cole Show have come up with an awesome new gimmick for him: Bad News Barrett. It's exactly how it sounds. He delivers bad news to people, seemingly at random.
You can see it at the end of the above video and immediately after should begin petitioning WWE to make it part of his on-screen character post haste. He'll go from painfully dull and uninteresting to wildly entertaining in the blink of an eye.
