    “Welcome back, Mr. Barret! The surgery was a success. The ligaments were reconstructed in your shoulder as well as the distal clavicle resection. Rest comfortably now…as for returning back to the ring soon I’M AFRAID OF GOT SOME BAD NEWSSSS…” – Dr. Jeff Dugas

    Damn!! Just how hard did Swagger throw him? I would suggest doing a feud with Swagger when he returns, but I think it’s best he leave Swagger’s heavy handed aggression alone. Hope he gets better REALLY soon, don’t need anymore bad news about the future of his career.

    There goes another heel. So currently wwes top heels are : Orton, Kane…….. Now I see why bray is fueding with jericho. Cesaro is a mid card heel, so is rusev and Brock is part time. Wow wwe hasn’t got any good heels. Who’s gonna generate heat for the baby faces? Just when things are starting to look up talent wise I now see wwe has a huge problem moving forward.

      Cody should turn heel, he was loathed by everyone from 2011-2012.

    • Xx_Deadpool_xX

      Seth Rollins is a good heel

      • Monkey D. Luffy

        he’s ok.. but not near as good as the heels in the past. In fact there are no credible heels in this era. Bray Wyatt was close to being a major heel till they slowly groomed him as a tweener.

        • codys moustache

          Working with cena turned him tweener and that will always be the result working cena unless your Kane. Who noone can really stand anymore and Orton who is boring as fuck

          • Monkey D. Luffy

            i agree with that to some extent. The crowds of today cheer the heels who impress them. Bray has taken us all by storm with his amazing promos and how he plays his character so well in and out of the ring. I don’t recall the last time he directly insulted the audience, in fact, he formed his own cult even before feuding with Cena garnering some face reactions.

          • codys moustache

            Great point, heels insult the fans. Bray hadn’t really done this. Your right. But I think now the aim is to make a top heel out of bray so maybe he ll start to do so

          • Monkey D. Luffy

            definitely, the WWE lacks credible Heels compared to the number of Faces

      • codys moustache

        He’s not main event. And Ambrose is going to carry him

    • James Tebrucio Luna

      The Miz’s New Heel Gimmick I believe will do well, seems like something he can pull off IMO.

      • codys moustache

        Is that a joke?

        • James Tebrucio Luna

          No… Like I said “In my opinion” besides we only got a glimpse of “Hollywood” Miz on monday and yes I do know they are just reusing The “Hollywood” Rock Heel Gimmick and I believe Miz can pull it off but again IMO

  • Necro

    All that can be said is….FUCK I’M AFRAID I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS :'(

  • Tiny

    Hope they can keep him on TV every few weeks to keep him relevant, maybe he can do bad news promos

  • Barack Lesnar

    I’ve got some good news. Wade Barrett is injured and out for 3-6 months and is stripped of the Intercontinental championship belt. LOL

  • Jay Jay Aces

    Hey…this is AMAZING news! Vacant now holds yet ANOTHER title!

  • ksedude

    He could stay on TV doing bad news promos. They don’t have to lose him completely.

    • ksedude

      He could start appearing in a month or two to tease a match with the current IC champion for the title, intentionally never saying when it will happen though. A twist on the good old rematch clause angle. When he’s cleared to compete he could ambush the champ in the ring, and get The Authority to invoke his rematch clause right then. Bam…instant heel heat, he has the title back, and an instant feud to work.

      He could start even on the RAW after Battleground:
      “I bet you’re happy to be the intercontinental champion, and while congratulations are certainly in order, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news…” type of thing.

    It’s so ironic this happened to the guy who would come out and gain pleasure out of delivering bad news to people. Kafabe Karma
    Wrestling should go back to kayfabe. Work the fucking world again vince!!
