    The one time we can fairly write off a gimmick after the first week.

    Some bad news for Barrett: Creative is a mess, and they don’t have any clue how to use him properly.

    I’m not a fan of the “Bad News Barrett” gimmick so far. It just doesn’t seem funny to to me. Besides that, what was wrong with his old gimmick? I definitely liked the no nonsense, serious figghter type character he portrayed a lot more than this new garbage. Alls that previous character needed was some time and a serious push to get over in a big way. It was more realistic and seemed like it was more of who he really is. All good characters that people seem to connect with are when its just a person playing themselves turned all the way up. Why WWE would change his character from what he had to this is beyond me.

    He’s made two appearances with the gimmick but hey lets write it off. You guys have to remember you’re just fans you lack any ability to gauge the future success of failure of a gimmick.
