Losing to the world's biggest jobbers is not going to help him.
Daniel Bryan was a jobber though. Remember that losing streak in NXT? Anyway, it's not really official. I doubt WWE are going to give Gabriel a title shot but if they do, then clearly this tournament will give him time to re-built.

Re: Wade Barrett Starting Intercontinential Cup Starting Next Week

Yeah, and he wasn't when he came back. If you want to have Gabriel take the title off Barrett, you better put the fucker on tv for a couple months and re-establish him before you do it.

Frankly, it's not worth it since Gabriel isn't worth re-building. Just have somebody else do it. Where the fuck's Christian or Mark Henry? They can return and take it off him no problem.

What everyone really wants for Christmas:

Re: Wade Barrett Starting Intercontinential Cup Starting Next Week

I think a feud with William Regal right now would be the best option. Another option would be to bring in Kassius Ohno. I am a firm believer that body size kind of matters in selling a fight. The Rock is so much bigger when he faces off with CM Punk and it's kind of like...idk. Kassius and Wade match up well. If Jack Swagger was to return now as a face, I think that would work really well too.

I hope Miz wins it. Maybe a Miz/Barrett feud for the IC Title will make the belt look important.

It's probably not going to happen since The Miz is feuding with Cesaro for the United States Championship.

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.

Re: Wade Barrett Starting Intercontinential Cup Starting Next Week

I think this is an awesome idea and I cant wait to see it. Im hoping someone like Gabriel wins this, I wouldve liked Miz but he's feuding with Cesaro, and I also like the idea of William Regal that someone said earlier. Possibly a returning Jack Swagger or Christian could win this aswell.
Theres so many possibilities, which makes it even more interesting. BTW, on twitter Michael McGillicutty and Heath Slater where saying that they were entering, and Wade said something like he's gonna take them out with a Bull Hammer (obviously in kayfabe). Not sure if they were being serious, but take it for what its worth.

Re: Wade Barrett Starting Intercontinential Cup Starting Next Week

Thinking about it more, I really think Gabriel would be a great winner for this. I would hope that the title match itself would go long though. Give it like 20 minutes, make the title feel like it means something.

Re: Wade Barrett Starting Intercontinential Cup Starting Next Week

I think Barrett should hold the title till Wrestlemania, defend it against Steamboat if Steamboat can even still compete, beat him, and lose it one of the following two PPVs before MITB. MITB he wins the contract, successfully cashes in at some point before Mania (preferably as far from Mania as possible so he gets a good long reign), and then loses it to Ryback if Ryback hasn't already gotten the WWE or World Title yet. Granted the match would probably suck, but I'd much rather Ryback take the title off him than most others. Though the ideal match-up for Barrett would be against Sheamus at Wrestlemania for the title as that would probably result in the best match for Barrett bar a match with Bryan, though I'd want that only if Barrett actually gets to beat that pasty white ginger Irish goof, which wouldn't happen.

Woops, I'm getting ahead of myself. The IC Title cup is an interesting idea and brings some attention to the IC Title. Granted it's minimal as I question if anyone worthwhile is going to be in the cup, but it's something and will make the IC Title scene a little interesting for the next few weeks.

I'm watching you...
