    Question vince mcmahon not a big fan wade barrett wardrobe

    according to wrestlinginc.com


    Vince McMahon apparently wants Wade Barrett to have less gimmicks that conflict with his fight club-inspired persona. According to a source, Vince recently ranted about the flower briefly returning to Barrett's wardrobe and was asking what it had to do with his character.
    Vince isn't angry with Barrett, but believes that he needs to focus on one thing and stick to it or else he risks looking too cartoonish. In recent months Barrett has gone from wearing jeans and being a bare knuckle fighter, then wearing the robe, then having the rose and then adding the anchor to his tights.

    A lot of wrestlers believe it's a case of creative giving bad direction to a wrestler on where to take their character.

    Give him a Triple H 2002-esque look. A bad ass denim wearing English...guy. Though it is more of a face direction to go.

    No denim jacket though, just the jeans the beard and maybe a white vest. Taped up wrists as well he'll look great.

    Yeah, he should stick to the jeans and taped fists for the time being. Maybe, when they shed him of the bare-knuckle brawler aspects of his gimmick, he can return to being a more refined Englishman character again. But for now, what will help him the most is being an edgy and grungy-looking character.

    I'll be honest: I like the robe and the flower and all of that stuff. I would love for Wade to be a refined, classy, pretentious character. But that's not who he is right now, and not what he needs to be doing to rise up to the top. The bare-knuckle brawler is what will push him into the next level and establish him there. Reach the top, and then switch gimmicks.

    Barrets vignettes were awesome but since he returned he has not made any impact what so ever IMO. There giving him a slow push but I feel like he should be in the main event already. Jeez the guy is in a fued with kofi Kingston.

    What's wrong with that, Kofi's had a push. I think it's good he's having a slow build, I assumed they would shove him straight in the main event. He will still be the first English WWE Champion.

    I wouldn't mind Barrett becoming a major heel, and I think Vince is right on with making him more of a hard ass fighter.

    Yeah the only good thing about this fued is barret will take the IC title away from kofi. Though I just feel barret is wasted on Kofi title or no title.

    I think Kofi will retain.

    However Kofi isn't a waste, and if Barret actually does win then the positive is he's a champion and being pushed.There's no negative there for me.

    I thought the talk around a few months ago was that Barrett would return with a huge push because he was injured before he was scheduled to win the MITB contract? Obviously that didn't eventuate though. I'm not really into his character, when they were hyping his return and he had the bare knuckle boxer thing I was intrigued but his wardrobe change, lack of exposure and character direction just haven't done it for me. I can see where Vince is coming from.
