Title or non-title, Del Rio is winning. The only reason Kofi is in this mini program with Del Rio is because ADR needed something to do before his big WM match.

No reason at all why Kofi should/would win.

shouldve been a title match. they should put all the gold on del rio as someone posted a thread saying. it would cause epic rage from the iwc dudes that are still mad that john morrison is boring and didn't win the royal rumble.

Of course Del Rio will win.
But I think we will see a return of a special guy who faces Del Rio and Edge at WrestleMania.
It's not Sting, HHH oder Sgt. Slaughter.
Who in the hell could it be?^^

Title on the line would have been cool, because then Del Rio could have won which would have given him A LOT more credibility going into WM. Title vs TItle would have been cool at Mania.

Not really, the IC title is already pretty irrelevant and putting it on Del Rio as an unnecessary prop while he fights for the world championship would make it even less relevant.

What a lame match to add if you ask me. Non-title too :no:
They needed Del Rio to have a match at the PPV, plus it does make sense as they have nothing for Kofi either. I would have been pissed if they announced Kofi vs. somebody like Swagger or Tyler Reks for the title as there hasnt been a build up at all.

Oh my, you gotta feel for Kofi. The guy has absolutely no future in the WWE. Instead of getting an IC program or being in the chamber match, he's being fed to someone who's been less than 10 months in the company. Hopefully he doesn't quit like fellow perennial midcarder MVP. I feel he's going the same way as him.

I still can't stop laughing at people predicting him to win the Rumble last year. He just doesn't have what it takes.

Yes, because being in a feud with the Royal Rumble winner is so much worse than being in a meaningless IC title feud or a chamber where him and other midcarders have zero chance of winning. :rolleyes:

What are you guys, nuts? I wish it was a title match. I like Kofi, but ADR needs all the cred. he can get going into mania. Him winning the IC title and facing Edge would be good for both the championship and ADR. It would also give him more fuel to his claim that winning the WHC is his destiny.

He could win the world title and then relinquish the IC title after, just like Goldberg did in WCW with the US title. Then they could have another tournament dealie and the belt would have some kind of better luster.
