Before the Extreme Rules Kickoff commenced Sunday night, the brawler from Preston, England, was pretty confident after learning that he wouldn’t be competing for the Intercontinental Championship, as Daniel Bryan hadn’t been medically cleared to defend his title. He never suspected, that he would find himself on the canvas for a three-count while attempting to take out the main roster newcomer.

The first inklings of this upset came right off opening bell, as The New Sensation used his speed and agility to take full advantage of Barrett's blatant lack of respect for his fellow Brit. Barrett was quick to adjust, taking control of the contest by yanking his adversary’s legs out from under him as Neville geared up for a dive from the apron. The five-time former Intercontinental Champion continued to set the pace and keep Neville grounded from there.

It all seemed over when Barrett countered Neville in two separate instances to hit Winds of Change and Wasteland. However, Neville shot his shoulder up with resilient enthusiasm at the count of two both times. Done playing around, Barrett cocked the Bad News Bull Hammer Elbow for an unloading on The New Sensation's temple. He then aimed, fired ... and missed. Twice.

Neville ducked the blows and delivered shots of his own to Barrett's dome. With his opponent dazed and floored, The Man That Gravity Forgot landed the Red Arrow and heard an ovation from Chicago’s sold-out Allstate Arena crowd three seconds later.

On the positive side, Barrett still has his Intercontinental Title rematch clause, so maybe it wasn’t all bad news for him at Extreme Rules.
