“Bad News Barrett underwent a ligament reconstruction in his shoulder, as well as a distal clavicle resection, where the end of the collar bone is shaved off,” WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann said. “The operation went very well, he’s resting comfortably.”
The untimely injury cost Barrett the Intercontinental Championship and an opportunity at the Money in the Bank contract this past Sunday. Now, the surly Brit will be out of action as he waits for his surgically repaired shoulder to fully heal, so he can pummel his foes with the Bad News Bull Hammer Elbow once again. Once he is cleared to return to the squared circle, it will only be bad news for the rest of the WWE roster.
