Backstage News on Barrett’s WWE Future and Money in the Bank at SummerSlam

– WWE officials are hoping that Wade Barrett will be back in action by July so they can feature him prominently at SummerSlam.

Before Barrett went down with an injury, he was scheduled to win Money in the Bank at WrestleMania 28 and challenge CM Punk for the WWE Title.

The Money in the Bank match may be moved to SummerSlam this year just so Barrett can win it and begin the push, feuding with CM Punk for the WWE Title going into the fall.

    I’m a huge Barrett fan and I don’t believe this at all. Unfortunately, Vince has proven that he’s not high on Barrett and there’s no long term plans for him to be a world champion. They’ve remained stagnant on him for far too long while others who are unworthy of his spot have jumped ahead of him.


    Perfect role model


    I want to see Punk defend the WWE Championship for 12 months atleast.

    @Red, what do you expect from Middleton?
    Its only been a week or so since this site told us that the MITB PPV was being reinstated because of Wade being the guy who was sposed to win the match at WM (even though they never even announced such a match). You cant expect Mark to actually pay attention to the PPV schedule as it takes all his concentration to cut and paste news from elsewhere.

    I’ve a big fan of Barret ever since he Headbutt the miz mid promo. He reminds me of vinnnie jones. If wwe creative would watch some old guy Ritchie movies, they’d know just how to write for him.

    summerslam has been sucky for the past few years… should put a big unique match like mitb.

  • Devil_Rising

    No offense to Barret, but I really wish WWE would get over making “future top stars” out of huge guys like him and Sheamus. It just gets old.

  • Bill

    Barrett vs. Punk would be awesome. Maybe even use their Nexus history to add to the potential feud.

    I miss the concept of a wrestler actually having a match to win his first world/WWe title. I do like money in the bank but it should be used to establish a new star. Barrett honestly doesnt need to win it, nor did del rio. Barrett should come back at a surprise random battle royal to determine the #1 contender and win it. Save money in the bank for dolph, sin cara, kofi, or another up and coming talent who needs his FIRST big push off of the win

  • Jimbo

    Why CM Punk? They don’t want him to beat Orton or Sheamus?

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow.

    I hope Barrett makes a full recovery, I still wish they had MITB at Wrestlemania regardless of Barrett’s injury, they could have just had him win it next Wrestlemania if they’re waiting until Summerslam.

    so punk will have it till then? i do wonder when people will start giving him hhh/cena like “omg wer bored of him being champ” blah blah blah.

    otherwise jericho wins at wm, then punk takes it off him possibly injuring him if jericho is gona have some months off for fozzy

  • mabry

    Such a frikin random decision if its true….

  • Maltese

    i feel sorry for Barrett, he has a great bad guy personality and has already a good moveset, can’t wait til he is back.

  • Red

    Err, the Money In The Bank match will probably be happening at the Money In The Bank PPV in June…you know, seeing as it is named Money In The Bank and all.
