Latest Bad News For Wade Barrett Yet Another Big Setback

Wade Barrett was diagnosed with a separated shoulder after undergoing x-rays last Thursday. Once it was learned his shoulder was separated, he was pulled from all creative plans and the decision was made to strip him of the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

WWE will crown a new Intercontinental Champion at Battleground in a Battle Royal featuring Cesaro, Kofi Kingston, Damien Sandow, The Great Khali and more participants to be announced.

Barrett injured his shoulder at last week’s Smackdown taping in Pittsburgh and is out “a number of months.”

    Now, if Sheamus gets injured, no one is going to want to hold a belt.

    Jack Swagger strikes again!

      I don’t think that one is on swag. That one is on wade. but swagger is still dangerous.

    It must be a pretty bad separation if they had to strip him of the title since recovery time from a separated shoulder can be as low as two or three weeks.

  • Vin Sidious

    Battle Royals are lame ways to determine a champ. They have a month. They should run a tourney on Raw with the final bout at Battleground.

      Exactly! It’s the IC title after all. I would even be ok with a qualifying tourney on RAW. Then, a three match tourney at Battleground like they did for the Undisputed Title where Y2J won. It’s not like they are story line heavy right now anyhow..

    Kofi will have to come up with another way to save himself. That will be three this year already!
