A shoulder injury forced Barrett to relinquish his WWE Intercontinental Championship. It may be a long while before he can battle to get that title back.
Johnson reports for PWInsider that "Barrett had his shoulder checked out by physical therapists this week and will officially begin therapy in the next few weeks as he works to return to the ring. He's not expected back for at least several months."
