At last night’s WWE house show in Nottingham, Bad News Barrett played a retirement angle which was revealed to be a swerve. On that show Neville defeated Finn Bàlor (who worked as a heel) and after the match was over, Bad News Barrett came out.
Barrett talked about how he suffered a severe shoulder injury last year and was out for a long time. He then went on to talk about how he returned in Janurary, but he’s struggling to recover from the injury. He then said “So I have came to the decision that I will be retiring from WWE at the end of my contract”.
Barrett then talked about how all of the fans should support Neville to become the first ever English WWE World Heavyweight Champion. His promo sounded very believable until he hit Neville with a Bullhammer out of nowhere and said it was all a lie.
Below are the results from the show:
* Neville def. Finn Bàlor
* Cesaro & Tyson Kidd def. The New Day
* R-Truth def. Xavier Woods
* Jimmy Uso def. Fandango
* Daniel Bryan, Eric Rowan & Dolph Ziggler def. Sheamus, Bad News Barrett & Bray Wyatt
* Emma, Summer Rae and Natalya def. Cameron, Alicia Fox and Rosa Mendes
* Damien Sandow def. The Miz
* Roman Reigns def. Big Show in a Street Fight
Daniel Bryan & Roman Reigns got the biggest pops of the night.
