But WM is right around the corner. There is going to be so much going on that a Barrett push would just get lost in the shuffle. Might as well make him a champion for te meantime.
Since having midcard title reigns haven't meant anything, ie, as long as they've existed. It doesn't matter if his push is lost in the shuffle behind Cena/Rock, Punk/Undertaker, etc, as long as the end result is a WHC reign. And a world title push would definitely be less lost in the shuffle than an IC title reign. The IC title is barely even going to get noticed.

Triple H, The Rock, HBK, Stone Cold, Edge...all had at least 2-3 years as a midcarder winning other titles edited they won the big one. Did wonders for their career IMO.
Yeah.....that doesn't happen anymore, it's a completely different era. They push everybody to the moon now, Sheamus, Ryback, Del Rio, etc. Barrett is better than all of them, he should've gotten the same opportunity instead of having his talents wasted in the midcard. And don't say the Nexus push was as important as a world title, it wasn't.

Re: Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston vs Wade Barrett

I'm dreading this match, I really don't wanna see Barrett holding a Title that is beneath him, but I doubly don't want to see him do a clean job on PPV to a much inferior talent. The only acceptable outcome to this match for me would be Barrett saying "fuck it" and destroying Kingston, getting DQ'd, at least he looks strong that way and doesn't have to carry around the midcard belt.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

Barrett.

Not that the IC title means anything these days, but it would help Barrett more than it is helping Kingston.

Re: Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston vs Wade Barrett

Kofi Kingston's high-flying athleticism and Wade Barrett's brawling style could make for a very well-balanced match-up. But fun match or not, I'm still against this. I feel the latter is far above the mid-card scene and should already have been pushed as SmackDown's top main-event heel. Win or lose, he's doomed. Having him win this match would be bad. It would just continually keep him in the mid-card position, and he would just have another rushed, forced, and forgettable Intercontinental Championship reign like last year - ironically against the same exact guy. Having him lose this match would be bad. His credibility would decrease drastically. So with those two being said, we can only hope he loses via disqualification, a count-out or something.

If anyone should be our very own Intercontinental Champion, it's none other than Damien Sandow himself. Could you imagine how wonderful the classic white/black title would look around his waste? Not to mention, he would resemble a Golden Era character very much so. With the injury of Cody Rhodes (who was holding him back from a well-deserved singles push), this would've been the perfect opportunity to provide him with this push.
