Let's face it, what is Barrett getting out of his current IC reign? A feud with Bo Dallas?
On the other hand, let's look at the possible 'Mania setup of Cody VS Goldust, a good potential midcard feud WM match. If Cody wins back the IC strap, that can give a stipulation to the match, perhaps make the IC belt more relevant. I'd like to see the belt off of Barrett and on Cody again, and perhaps, that could slowly elevate him to the main event scene.
