badnewsbarretI can only imagine how proud and happy @WadeBarret was when he found out he’d be bringing #BadNewsBarret to #Raw. It’s too bad that he seems to have been relegated to using generic heel tactics to gain heat, instead of using the smart and entertaining “bad news” he was delivering on the JBL & Cole show. Hopefully this was just the intro to the character – if he keeps on just insulting the city he’s in, the gimmick will die out of boredom alone. It would have been better to intro him through a backstage segment in a way reminiscent to the web show, or even showing up in the middle of a throwaway bout and deliver the bad news to the losing competitor.  Of course, they could just leave him with the cheap heel tactics – Heaven forbid he becomes a “cool heel” out of being genuinely entertaining.
