Wade Barrett’s Return, Creative Team Disgruntled & More

– Wade Barrett is targeting August for his return after recently undergoing shoulder surgery. As we noted a few weeks ago, WWE decided to pull Money in the Bank from the WrestleMania lineup when Barrett got injured, as he was booked to win the match. The latest is that Money in the Bank could take place at SummerSlam, when Barrett would be healthy to return.

– Morale is said to be low among some of the WWE writers after several were not  invited to the WrestleMania 28 after party. Top writers Brian Gewirtz, Ed Koskey and Michael Hayes were there, but most of the creative staff was not. A Twitter account parodying Vince McMahon posted several messages this week posing as Vince and complaining about th writers who were upset about not being invited.

    • FOLEY_is_GOD

      Nobodies going to admit it until it actually happens. Remember, WWE is better than TNA at all times ;) I’d be so happy to see Jeff back. 

      • Drizzydrake

        Thank you, someone who finally understands me

      • blaaa blaa

        all the haters donn no who jeff really the only thin they know is jeff takes druugs HARDY BEST IN THE WORLD

    • EdgeheadY2J

      STFU about Jeff Hardy. He and his no-talented brother can go back to tazing his girlfriend or cutting horrible drunk shoots on people in diners

    • ALDO the APACHE

      I gotta give you props I didn’t think you’d actually keep this jeff hardy thing up lol.

      • Drizzydrake

        Lol thanks i try. I’m actually a really cool guy but I just luv to go overboard with the hardy comments. But trust me I luv Jeff hardy so damn much like heez my family. I really mean everything I say bout Jeff

        • HeathSlaterFan

           Jeff Hardy is the greatest performer of all time

          • Drizzydrake

      jeff hardy sucks. all he does is flip in the air and jump off of shit. forget hardy.

      • Drizzydrake

        And that isn’t entertaining. How the he’ll can u say he sucks. Sure geez been thru bad things but that doesn’t mean he sucks. HBK also had similar problems and look what he turned out to be. As far as the flipping in the air…I bet you’re a Rey mysterio fan and if you are than u should just shut up

      • punk drunk funk suks

         jeff hardy is betar then punk an cena

    • pwnez

      I would prefer to never see Jeff back in the WWE. That’s just my take on it. 

      • Drizzydrake

        I would prefer to jump off my nuts

      • blaaa blaa

         ya me too he is good in TNA all the haters just STFU jeff hardy is awsome

  • BrahmaBullRKO

    Man, now it’s gonna be obvious who is gonna win at Summerslam. Oh well, it will probably be a good match, plus I’ll be happy that he won anyway.

    • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

      Dolph Ziggler is more ready for main event status than Wade Barrett IMO. I’m still against holding a MITB ladder match at Summerslam though as it would render the entire Money In The Bank PPV pointless.

      • Aaron

        he would be more ready if he dropped vicky and swagger as of right now no one could take him seriously as champion now wade barrett on the otherhand could actually be taaken seriously as champion

      • BrahmaBullRKO

        Wow, I completely forgot they were still having that PPV. I guess if Barrett comes back soon, they could build him up and have him win the Smackdown MitB. Meanwhile, Ziggler drops Vickie sometime before the Summer and wins the RAW MitB. I’m still not too fond of the whole idea of two MitB winners each year, but if they’re gonna do it, they should make it count.

        • http://twitter.com/FlipCity1017 Jager1017

          idk. i kinda wanna see ziggler and swagger as a tag team to help beef up the tag division. you got the uso’s, epico & primo, truth & kingston.. if swagger broke away from the american gimmick and got into the cockiness that ziggler is, i could see them being somewhat like the new new age outlaws.. but i’m sure they’ll end up splitting up in the coming weeks after this last raw, unfortunately..

      • http://twitter.com/spiledrive Spiledrive Crawford

        I think they cancelled the MITB PPV.

      • HeathSlaterFan

         Straight up, you CANNOT have a WWE Champion with the name Dolph Ziggler.  He is a fantastic wrestler and he is great on the mic.  “injure” him and repackage him under his real name.  Then he will be legitimate,

  • Flint Gome

    Being given favours like these is gud, wait a few years and he will be like Tyson Kidd who was a tag champion and now plays in NXT

  • fatneal

    i think im going to be “that guy” who complains about how stupid the comments section is until im either banned or it changes…..WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH THE COMMENTS!!!!!!!!

    • BrahmaBullRKO

      I’m with you. I like the way the site looks, but not being able to scroll through the comments is pretty annoying.

  • pwnez

    At least he’s still going to receive his push when he returns. Barrett was just starting to grow on me too when he got injured. 

    • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

      I’m sure he’ll feud with Sheamus upon his return.

  • http://wrestledirect.com/ Kaos

    WWE must be really high of Wade seeing they they canceled a match due to injury. Now they are gonna have the MITB at Summerslam just for Wade. I like Barret to, but Why does he need the MITB briefcase angle to get his push? How about instead doing yet another MITB cheap heel title victory, you actually build him up as a legit threat? This guy’s young, he’s got plenty of time
    As fo the writers, moral should be down for all of them as %80 of the shit  they put out sucks.

    • http://twitter.com/FlipCity1017 Jager1017

      yea, as much as a fan of barrett’s i am, i don’t want them to go forward with the mitb win for him, since we KNOW he’s gonna win. kinda takes away from what little mystery they usually have going into these 6 or 8 man mitb matches.. why bother when half the fans know what the outcome will be? i am hoping he comes back with new music..

      • BrahmaBullRKO

        Either with new music or bring back “End of Days.” He has a pretty solid fanbase who mostly prefer that song, so I think his return will get a much better reaction if he returns with that theme.

  • SiD

    How weird is that, that a full match depends on one person, because, usually, WWE have a plan B, but they didn’t. Wade Barrett is their next star. 

  • Yoshi


  • SpecialGuest

    Wade Change your entrance music back

  • Super Panchito

    Can’t wait for Barrett to return. He’s one of the main reasons I watched SmackDown.

  • ProgressNow2012

    so these are the writers responsible for the same old shit huh? well bar them ALL next time……better yet…..perform a post-Wrestlemania writer decontamination, fire them all, start anew. I’m sure there’s plenty of fans who can come up with better-smelling shit than theirs.

    and August? lucky Barrett will have plenty of time to reach a lvl60 with a brand new Diablo 3 char.

    and the comments section on the site is still broken, I can only see like 1-2 comments before the page cut-offs

  • http://twitter.com/TeamAwesome418 Team Awesome

    If anything go back in time to where Superstars won cleanly and had standing ovation for it. So Wade does not need the Brief case, if you want to do things right let him win the championship  at Summerslam like Orton did back in 2004. I would like to see that happening as a fan of his i can imagine if the crowds reaction to be positive or negative, but would be nice.
