After honing his skills in Florida Championship Wrestling, Wade Barrett went on to win Season One of WWE NXT in May 2010. Barrett rose to power, notoriety, and dominance as the founding leader of the Nexus for the latter half of 2010 and from early to mid-2011 formed (and later disbanded) another alliance, the Corre, during his first reign as WWE Intercontinental champion. The latter part of 2011 saw the Barrett Barrage propel the English superstar to his greatest height thus far as a single competitor. (Continued)

We’ve seen in previous episodes that Wade Barrett has some serious problems with technology. But even if himself uses the term Technophobia, this doesn’t mean that he won’t try to overcome his weakness and fight back. He might even act publicly as if Technology was “no big deal”.
Here’s this Monday’s example of Wade Barrett, trying to help two poor souls:
Actually, that last answer makes me fear a little for Wade. It wouldn’t be the first time that an American person tries something advised (or not forbidden in the micro-oven manual), and sue the advisor/company afterwards when things don’t end well. So, for those of you who strongly believe that for Wade Barrett “sarcasm” is just a 7-letter word starting with ‘s’, I strongly suggest you to double-check with The Great Khali. After all, he moves like a robot, he speaks like a robot… surely he MUST have some great technological knowledge! (…naw mean?)
In Episode 7, Heath Slater advised Wade to start with the basics – in order to learn progressively – and we’ve all seen that our Grumpy Brit could actually be a fast learner. This time, armed with a new sense of confidence, he decided to bravely face one of his worst nemeses.
If we compare with the previous episode, we can already see a pattern emerging in Wade’s way of dealing with Technology. But haven’t you already faced that problem before? If so, I DOUBLE DARE you to claim that this “solution” hasn’t crossed your mind at some point. :^)
See you next week on Wednesday, for another episode of WWEekly Comics! This week episode was delayed to Thursday due to… technological issues. Seriously! ^^;
In episode 1, you’ve seen that Wade Barrett had some problems raising a tamagotchi.
Countless of times, our Grumpry Brit has admitted on Twitter that Technology wasn’t his strong point, even using the hashtag #Technophobia once in a while. And when Wade Barrett admits that he has a flaw, you suddenly feel the need to look over your shoulder to check if the four horsemen of the Apocalypse wouldn’t be nearby.
So for Wade, defeating that flaw could become one of his biggest challenges. Hopefully for him, Heath Slater doesn’t hold grudges. Even if the 3MB leader is the target of recurrent attacks from his former Nexus leader, he’s always willing to help a comrade in difficulty, with easy examples.
The journey is going to be very long for Wade… But very funny for us ;^)
People have been battling for ages about what was more important in life: Having intelligence, or wisdom? Intelligence is more about the amount of knowledge and how you connect these knowledges together. Wisdom is more about how you decide to apply/modify/ignore these knowledges on the field.
We could say that INTELLIGENCE is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, and WISDOM is choosing not to add tomatoes to a fruit salad.
So, which is the quality that will ensure you survival in a hostile environment? To help you grab better the two concepts, let’s use some vivid examples.
Long before Damien Sandow took his “spot” during his elbow as the Intellectual Savior of the Masses, Wade Barrett proclaimed himself as the most intelligent WWE superstar. Since his debut in NEXUS, he has proven to have the brain of a chess player. Always thinking with a few moves in advance; planning traps within traps, manipulating people and events in order to direct them right into the path he had chosen. A great war tactician with the mind of a politician.
Flaws: Once on the field, if his “victim” takes an action he hadn’t thought about before, we’ve sometimes seen Wade freezing with eyes wide open, showing some lack in adaptation to a new situation. Wade can thus be surprised. Also, being too intelligent for the people around him could be the cause of deep depressions.
His NEXUS Super goal: To accomplish the Bigger Picture and change the face of WWE. His NEXUS goal: To manage his troops in order to have an harmonized and efficient group, without killing himself first.
He has a friendly and playful attitude which goes well with his excess of energy. He speaks his mind whenever an idea crosses it, without thinking about the consequences. Many of his team-mates thus strongly believe that he is stupid, even if he sometimes surprises them with an extremely wise and logical speech. Wade has often declared that Heath was the dumbest human being on Earth, but Heath has always proven that on the field – especially in the absence of Wade – he could successfully direct a group attack, not by over-planning it beforehand, but by observing how the situation evolved, and adapting constantly. And since almost nobody takes him seriously, he always has the element of surprise with him.
His Super-goal: To have a lot of fun, naw mean? His secret goal: To protect the human kind from a potential zombies invasion.
With those info now in mind, let’s now discover how it works on the field:
If you know which one of them you would trust with your life on the battlefield, you now know which between Intelligence and Wisdom is the most important to you.
For our American readers, when I say “football” in this WWEekly Comics episode, you must understand “soccer”, and imagine the ball as a sphere. This past Saturday, Wade Barrett was back home in UK, and guest of honour at the Preston North End Football Club’s match at the Banks’s Stadium.
If you’re familiar with Wade Barrett’s actions on Twitter, this shouldn’t surprise you too much. He never hid the fact that he’s been fan of PNE since he was a child, but has gotten very few occasions to actually see a match (even on TV) since he signed with WWE. Such statement made plenty of his fan(girl)s suddenly discover that they had been “fan of PNE since DAY ONE”(pssst… nineteenth century, girls…) while a week earlier, many couldn’t place UK on a world map. But in the end, Wade’s appreciation of PNE brought a new – unexpected – exposure to the Lancashire football club, making our Grumpy Brit be welcomed there as a hero. A childhood dream come true.
In his early days, Wade Barrett had thought of embracing a football career. But he explained how a disastrous childhood match ended up with his team losing 12-0, and made him realize that perhaps football wasn’t what he was destined for. Many MANY years later, here comes the NEXUS, and the rest is part of History.
But what if… What if so many years ago, Wade’s team had actually WON 12-0. Could the future have been different? What about his attitude on the field?
WWE Wrestlers fake injuries because of Entertainment purposes, and football players fake injuries for Sport purposes. But some are better actors than others… ;^)
WWE superstar and huge Preston North End fan, Wade Barrett, was the guest of honour at the weekend’s match at the Banks’s Stadium. North End got their first three points of the season away to a Walsall side who had previously gone 16 games unbeaten at home. Barrett watched the likes of Joel Byrom, Chris Humphrey and Lee Holmes score for the Lilywhites and he was delighted to be a part of the day. Having such a hectic career over in the USA, Wade rarely gets the chance to watch PNE, but he always makes sure that he keeps up to date with results and news surrounding the Club
Wade also managed to spend some time with the players and manager Simon Grayson, as well as taking the time to chat to a young Walsall Academy player, along with him family, who broke his leg last week.
We all saw the news on Saturday that Wade Barrett was the good luck charm in the stands who assisted Preston North End to victory at Banks’s Stadium, and Preston boss Simon Grayson, who spoke to the Walsall Advertiser, would agree -
North End were cheered on by WWE wrestling superstar Wade Barrett, a lifelong Lilywhites fan who was back in the UK sorting a visa issue.
Barrett spoke to the players in the dressing room before the game and Grayson said it had a positive effect.
Grayson added: “Wade is a big Preston fan and was back over in the UK so he made a conscious effort to come and watch the team who he has supported since he was a young kid.
“Hence we invited him into the dressing room and I think he was very proud of what the players have done out there today – we could maybe have used him as a motivational tool if they didn’t perform, I’m sure!”
Many thanks to PNE FC for sharing video from this past Saturday!
