    I can honestly say that I didn't even realize he was off of TV.

        Re: Real reason why Wade Barrett has disappeared

        Good interview. Does anyone know how difficult it is for someone like Barrett to get dual citizenship so that this kind of issue doesn't take place on a regular basis? I know a lot of foreign players in the NHL have done that. I assume its a rather complicated process but since probably about 90% of their work in done in the States it seems like it would be worth it to guys like Barrett, Shemus, ADR and others to try. I've felt for years now that problems like this are why the E seems reluctant to push these guys into mainevent/championship positions.

            I thought it was because they figured out he has no real potential.

                I seem to remember Drew McIntyre had a similar issue a couple of years ago, so this doesn't come as any surprise. Wade has a ton of potential, he's capable in the ring and he's solid on the mic. If they just stopped jobbing him out it'd all be good.

                Here's hoping he gets a push on his return, the IC/US title scene in particular could use him.

                    Wade Barrett has no star power. I think his best chance was the "hired gun" gimmick that lasted all but 0 weeks.

                        Too bad that not true. His main event run back in the nexus days proved how much star power he has, an many believe(me included) that had it not been for that ill-timed injury he would've been in a higher role right now. Shit happens though, that's life and so this doesn't seem like it's just opinion vs opinion I will just stick with my original statement and that he proved he had star power the moment he got into the main roster as the nexus leader.

                            I actually agree with WrestleMania 34, Barrett lacks a bit of star power. Nexus was successful because it was a great angle, and Barrett was successful in it because it emphasised Barrett's strength (talking). His singles matches during that run and at every other point in his career have exposed his lack of natural charisma. I'm afraid he has the gift of the gab, and not much else.
