Re: Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston vs Wade Barrett
Barrett wins. Kofi is a transitional champion who only won the title because they wanted to take it off Miz. Also, WWE doesn't have plans for Barrett at the moment so they'd rather have him hold the IC championship than do nothing at all. Giving him a reign with the belt will keep him occupied until they're ready to move him up to main event programs. I still firmly believe WWE sees Barrett as a future WHC but they realize the main event is too crowded for now.
