In a sign that WWE is going to push him, Wade Barrett was given the King of the Ring victory over Adrian Neville tonight. Plans must have been changed backstage recently because he was initially booked to put over Daniel Bryan at Extreme Rules a week ago. The absence of Bryan itself may have led to the change in decisions. The front office also did a good job of protecting Neville in the match by making it seem like he had a rib injury.

Some potentially bad news for NXT, as it appears as if Finn Balor might have suffered some sort of leg injury during a live event in Cocoa Beach over the weekend. It happened during a triple threat match that also featured Hideo Itami and Adrian Neville. Balor sold a hurricanrana from Neville, which is where the injury presumably happened. WWE has not commented on the situation, but there are those that believe that Balor might just be selling.
