* HeyItsThatGuy: "[[HilariousInHindsight Punk]]" from Series/ILoveNewYork.



* HeyItsThatGuy: Goliath from ''Series/{{Gladiators}}''



* HeyItsThatGuy: Resurfaced in 2012 as part of a tag team with Titus O'Neill from NXT Season 2.



* HeyItsThatGuy: [[spoiler: Made a few five-second cameos on the 1/24/10 episode of RAW. Wearing a black suit with a [[CreepyCoolCrosses cross necklace]] instead of the [[NightmareFuel mask]] for which he was known during his time in Nexus, he might not have been noticed if MichaelCole hadn't made a point of naming him when he appeared.]]

** He then went on to become one of the most over wrestlers in the entire company, his reactions ''dwarfing'' those that JohnCena ever got. He's the most over since StoneColdSteveAustin and TheRock and became the Undisputed WWE Championship at ''WrestleMania XXX'' over Wrestling/RandyOrton and the returning ''Wrestling/{{Batista}}''. Looking back at it now, getting kicked out of the Nexus was probably the best thing to happen to Bryan's career.

* FailOSuckyName: [=McGillicutty=]? Seriously? That has to be the least intimidating name ever.
** Despite heavily promoting that he was the son of Curt Hennig, WWE promoted the name as him using his mother's maiden name to avoid being in Hennig's shadow.

* FragileSpeedster[=/=]GlassCannon: A very fast, dangerous wrestler with a very lethal finisher, that's also very bad for him if he screws up.

* DemotedToExtra: After the fall of Nexus, he had a short run with the tag titles with Otunga, before losing them to EvanBourne and Kofi Kingston, and then very brief feud with JerryLawler, before not appearing on TV at all.

*** I don't know if they were trying to imply that [[{{Wrestling/ECW}} Beu]][[ActionGirl lah]] was his mother or something, but seriously, WWE. He has no family connection to Beaulah, Tommy Dreamer, or anyone from the old ECW, for that matter.



* LegacyCharacter: {{Deconstructed}}, he really, really, really wants to be Mr. Perfect, and it isn't helping him.

* BreakTheHaughty: Once he got carried away in wanting the WWE Championship and torturing Cena to get it, to the point of making the Nexus become all about him and forgetting all the aspects that made the group synonymous with its theme song, he ended up gradually but certainly losing the Nexus - to the point he found himself reaching to CM Punk for help in keeping them. CM Punk, by the way, who showed a clear intention ''to replace him''. Naturally this didn't end well for Mr. Barrett.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: When he first appeared he was a cynical, greedy, charismatic British thug, now he's become a scheming, manipulative, brutal war leader.

* TokenGoodTeammate: Kicked out for showing "remorse" for the infamous NXT riot on RAW. See RealLifeWritesThePlot for the real reason. Barrett would later state that he was kicked out due to him deeming a threat to Barrett's leadership.
