Yeah, it had to do with he and Tyrion agreeing that the Bo Dallas/Wade Rumble elimination somehow signaled the destruction of Wade's push. I pointed out to him that Maven eliminating Taker in 2002 didn't do fuck all to ruin Taker's momentum. If anything, these sort of eliminations provide a "moment". The fact that they even used Wade for that proves that they viewed him as a big enough deal to make it something shocking.

No shock it was an overreaction to something logical. I said the same thing you did once the moment occurred at the Rumble. If anything it's giving Barrett a program and is a way to debut Bo Dallas on the main roster. I fail to see this as a negative. Barrett was doing zero prior to this.

The actual elimination wasn't a negative since it was one of the biggest talking points of the entire show. Had Barrett been eliminated by say.. Orton, no one would be talking about it unless it was some sort of controversial elimination.

I'm not a big fan of the Bo Dallas follow up feud because I don't think Bo is the right guy to be pushing in that spot with all the other potential wrestlers in their developement talent pool, but they're clearly trying to get the guy over. At least they're pushing someone new instead of the same usual suspects. For all we know, Barrett could end up on the winning end of that feud and move on to bigger things. he could even drop the I.C title to Bo (Dear God no) as a way to get him involved in the World title mix down the line.

Like you said. Barrett is in no better or worse position post-Rumble than he was prior to it, so there's no reason to go apeshit over it.

I'm not much of a Bo fan myself, but I'll give WWE credit for giving a new face a developing angle. Beats debuting the kid with one backstage promo on smackdown and throwing him into a match. The usual wash, rinse, repeat method.

I've pondered the same scenario. For whatever reason IF (key word here) Bo managed to upset Wade, I could only see it being as an excuse to thrust him into the World Championship ranks. Someone will try and claim fault with this logic b/c Wade losing can't be a stepping stone. Sure it can. It's been done quite a few times actually. Rick Rude comes to mind. So does Miz. And even Sheamus. I wouldn't be left vexed if things go down this road. Only the low point of it is Bo Dallas being IC champ so quickly doesn't sound appealing. It has me thinking of Rocky Maivia back in '97.

Aside from being the workhorse title, the Intercontinental championship was at one time known as the gateway toward main event status. Back in the day, if you were the I.C. champion, it meant that you part of that echalon of guys that the WWE viewed as a potential player. They devalued the title by playing hot potato and slapping it on anyone just to increase their stock. The title shouldn't be used as a way to get people over, it should be a testament to a wrestler's status. If they put the title on Bo in the coming weeks, it will have the same effect as when Santino first won it. It will become a title that's borderline undesirable.

I have a feeling that they're taking this Bo/Wade feud to Wrestlemania since it wasn't announced for the Chamber PPV. I hope i'm wrong, with the rumored main matches for Mania, there's going to be a shitload of talent that'll need spots on the card. Wade is one of them, but Bo isn't ready yet. If they really insist on having this feud culminate at Mania, I hope it's on the pre-show.

Indeed. That's where I was hoping the championship would be heading to once again when Wade took it off the midcard king Kofi. WWE has been doing that for the last few years with their championships and I hate it. Even though they eventually got over and cemented themselves as a good tag team - MNM won the championships on their first night. Why? I don't like that kind of booking. It's why I'm not a fan of Alberto Del Rio's world championship reign atm. He only go it to help establish himself as a face. I wanted there to be long term build behind that. Instead it was booked on the fly and forced yet again. Much like so much WWE seems to do. Touche on the Santino point if Bo were to gain the gold from this program. I had a discussion about this last night with my brother and he made the same exact point. I fail to see the thought process behind this mentality of slapping on a championship to make a "new" guy look a certain way. Earning the gold is usually what makes fans care. Not having to see this new guy and think "oh, he's a champion. I think I should care about him now." It's not a good way to book your company.

I'm sort of on the fence in thinking that too. Unless it fizzles out in no time leaving Wade open for something else come WrestleMania. I've given up on guessing what WM has in store. I know too many quality members of the roster probably won't get their time on the show. Wade will probably be included at this rate.

ADR at least was a former 2 time WWE champion so his win had a bit of credibility, but you're right that it came out in left field. I'm thinking they did that as a way to set something up with Ziggler and his briefcase, but a part of me thinks that they didn't want to waste Del Rio's talents and realized that they desperately needed a flagbearer for the Mexican audience. They could've put more thought into the lead in though, Del Rio was basically floundering at that point. It's as if he completely changed his entire outlook on life overnight and became a completely different person with no real motivation or triggering point behind it. That's not how the world works lol


I'm not as big a Wade fan as a lot of people on here, but the guy does deserve a spot on the Mania Card. Right now they still have time to get the Bo feud out of the way and put Wade in a program with a higher profiled wrestler. It would be nice in theory to have an Intercontinental championship match on the card since that rarely ever happens, but it needs to a big deal otherwise you're better off giving that spot to someone else.











Wow. We really derailed from the OP topic, next thing you know, we'll be getting banned from the thread :P
