Why's everyone convinced Barrett is winning? Was it reported he's gonna win the IC belt or something?
Probably just an educated guess, Kofi is a bit lower on the totem pole than Barrett who, though booked poorly, has at least more credibility and is more likely to actually do something. Whereas Kofi going back to doing nothing for another few months wouldn't be too shocking.
Or hey Evan Bourne should be back soon, maybe they'll team up again.
