Re: Wade Barrett Starting Intercontinential Cup Starting Next Week
Meh, I think he should hold it until after Wrestlemania. A win at Mania would help him, and holding the Intercontinental strap will keep him relevant to a certain degree so he doesn't get lost in the shuffle with all the Rock vs Cena for the WWE title, and Punk vs somebody and Undertaker doing something else. Holding the title helps him stay on TV at least, he can lose it after Wrestlemania.
He's still a strong candidate to win Money in the Bank this year, and I am sure he will have the World title by 2014 at the least. Why they are pushing Dolph Ziggler and Del Rio and the Big Show over Wade Barrett, one of the best talkers and an above average wrestler, is a mystery to me. I don't buy the English excuse, he just has horrible luck.
