Daniel Bryan's status for tonight's Extreme Rules pay-per-view has been in doubt for a couple of weeks now after he was omitted from the WWE's recent European tour through injury.
After much rumor that he wouldn't be back in time for Sunday's primetime show it now looks almost certain that the bearded Superstar will not be able to defend his Intercontinental title against Bad News Barrett.
Last minute change
That is because, with just hours to go before the show gets under way, there is growing speculation that an up and coming Superstar has been slated in to battle Barrett as a last minute replacement.
After just three weeks on the main roster it looks like the WWE are about to give Adrian 'Neville' his biggest chance to shine yet.
Seeing Neville taking on Barrett is certainly something that would work with regards to the lead up to Extreme Rules.
It was only on last week's Smackdown that we saw Dolph Ziggler and Neville go up against, and beat, Bad News Barrett and Sheamus.
WWE fans would be disappointed not to see Daniel Bryan in action tonight but the opportunity to see one of the rising star's of the company get his next big push would help appease them.
What do you think WWE fans? Is Neville vs Barrett a good enough replacement for Daniel Bryan? Let us know in the comments section below...
