: Stuart Alexander "Stu" Bennett is an English professional wrestler, signed to World Wrestling Entertainment (under the SmackDown brand) as Wade Barrett and is a four-time WWE Intercontinental Champion. 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

Per tradition we shall begin with the bad news: Bad News Barrett still must relinquish the Intercontinental Title due to injury. However, the good news is that Our Hero will be appearing at WWE Battleground this Sunday to deliver the championship belt to the victor of the Battle Royal match to determine the next IC title holder.
The list of competitors in the Battle Royal include BNB’s Irish nemesis Sheamus, Kofi Kingston, Cesaro, Ryback, Dolph Ziggler, Bo Dallas (NOTE: Please God no), Heath Slater, Fandango, and many more.
Be sure to tune in this Sunday to Battleground on the WWE Network to catch the Bad News we’ve all been craving!

We’ve all heard the bad news. For us, bad news doesn’t usually suck. This time it does, though -

WWE announced on tonight’s RAW that Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett has a separated shoulder. He will be out of action for several months (NOTE: ‘MONTHS’ hits the hardest, doesn’t it?). The injury came when Jack Swagger threw him into the barrier at last Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings. The Intercontinental Title is now vacant and there will be a Battle Royal at WWE Battleground to determine a new champion.
That shit SUCKS. However, BNB fans are not ones for sitting around and moping for long. We organize and send a massive get-well-soon card!
Sign the GroupGreeting card and it will be printed and delivered to Bad News Barrett himself!
Get Well GroupGreeting for Bad News Barrett
Let’s start with the bad news, of course!
NOTE: What I have known since Tuesday night is it’s a distinct possibility that Our Hero could be out for a few weeks because of the injury sustained on tonight’s aired episode of SmackDown. That’s all anyone knows. The WWE should fill us all in this Sunday at Money in the Bank as to what will happen with Bad News Barrett‘s status as far as the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

Dean Ambrose def. Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett
Dean Ambrose and fellow Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match competitor Bad News Barrett traded hard-hitting strikes in SmackDown’s opening bout. With the Money in the Bank briefcase hanging high above the ring, it was The Lunatic Fringe who ultimately stood tall, using Dirty Deeds to silence the British brawler.
As the smoke cleared, a third Ladder Match participant, Jack Swagger, emerged and attacked the war-torn Barrett – an attack that resulted in a separated shoulder for the tough titleholder. Not one to shy away from a fight, a ravenous Ambrose hurled himself onto The Real American and quickly incorporated the ladder. Just as the unhinged Superstar was getting the better of the writhing Swagger, however, Seth Rollins launched a sneak attack on his former “business associate” that ended with a coldhearted Curb Stomp.

Bad news always comes first; that’s the way it’s done.
News courtesy of WWE.com (NOTE: It’s best to trust only WWE.com as far as this situation goes)
WWE.com has confirmed that Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett suffered a shoulder injury during Tuesday night’s SmackDown taping.
WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann spoke to WWE.com about the titleholder’s condition, explaining that the English Superstar ” … sustained an injury to his right shoulder when he was thrown into the barricade by Jack Swagger.”
“After Barrett felt an immediate pain and a pop,” continued Amann, “we brought him back to the training room and the exam showed a separated shoulder. We’re going to do some additional testing this week and then sit down with him and talk about options for treatment for this injury.”
As of yet, no official determination has not been made yet in terms of Barrett’s participation in Sunday’s Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match.
Check back with WWE.com for more details as they become available. And don’t miss SmackDown this Friday at 8/7 CT to see how it all went down.
Let’s all hope for the best for the Intercontinental Champion in this time of absolutely unfortunate timing.
