In case you're wondering, it has been a while since we've heard Wade Barrett cutting his "bad news" promos. The reason for that is because WWE officials instructed him to stop doing it. Management was concerned because the fans were actually cheering on the character and simultaneously saying the catchphrase with Barrett. Since he is supposed to be a heel, the front office wanted to ensure that he only received boos instead of cheers.

Another potential Wrestlemania opponent has surfaced for Dean Ambrose. Depending on how well his match against Wade Barrett at Fast Lane goes, WWE could opt to make the switch at the big pay per view by replacing Barrett with the soon to return Sheamus, who is still heavily rumored to be making a heel turn to freshen up his stale character. Management definitely wants to reward Ambrose for his hard work with a spot on the card.

Things could be a bit different when Wade Barrett finally makes his return to WWE. He could be doing a face turn. Management is aware that his character is quite popular with the audience and internet fans, so capitalizing on that would be a good idea. Plus, the creative department is concerned about pushing him on the heel side because there a lot of guys being pushed. Barrett would need to pass Rusev, Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt.
