Currently injured WWE superstar Bad News Barrett has given fans a look into the future claiming he could be back before the year is out.
The former Intercontinental champion has been out of action since June after picking up a shoulder injury days before the Money in the Bank PPV.
Barrett was stripped of his title after he was confirmed as being out with a long term injury and since then, hasn't been seen on WWE TV.
Barrett had been amidst a push up the card prior to his injury as he had been utilized as a hitman for the Authority.
However the injury to Barrett's shoulder ruled him out of the Money in the Bank PPV and unfortunately ended his push up the rankings.

Barrett has now claimed to being 4-6 weeks away from returning to WWE TV and should be set to be back prior to the road to WrestleMania.
He was desperate to compete on last week's episode of RAW, being filmed in Liverpool, England, the city he studied in and only 40 miles down the road from his home town of Preston.
Barrett is rumoured to be lifting weights once again but is not yet ready to return as he doesn't have his normal size back.
Barrett appeared at the WrestleMania XXXI ticket party at Levis Stadium on Saturday alongside fellow injured superstar Daniel Bryan.
Despite being a heel, Barrett is one of the more popular superstars in the WWE and his return could come prior to next years Royal Rumble.
Bad news for Ziggler
Barrett was injured whilst holding the Intercontinental Championship and has since done several interviews where he discusses trying to get his title back once he returns.
The Miz won the title after the injury to Barrett and has since lost it to the current Champion Dolph Ziggler.
Ziggler is not set to defend his title at Survivor Series on Sunday as he is part of the big Team Authority vs Team Cena match.
A return before or even at TLC next month could lead to Barrett feuding with Ziggler and trying to retain the title he never lost.
