WWE News: Huge Angle Involving Wade Barrett at Smackdown Tapings (**SPOILERS**)
SPOILERS: Update on Wade Barrett and His Possible Wrestlemania Storyline
Like always, don't read this if you like to be surprised, because there's some huge news coming out of last night's Smackdown taping in Columbus, Ohio.
Wade Barrett of The Corre defeated Kofi Kingston to become the new Intercontinental Champion after Barrett hit a distracted Kingston with the Wasteland for the win.
Obviously, this is big, as neither man has a match scheduled for Wrestlemania 27 as of yet, and this could be the WWE's way of setting up a bout between the two at the granddaddy of them all.
But I've decided to look at this in a different light.
Barrett's Intercontinental title win at last night's show follows Sheamus' United States Championship victory from last week's Raw show.
Hmm. That's two former main eventers winning the WWE's so-called "second-tier" titles in a span of less than two weeks.
Now, there could be a number of reasons for this, such as WWE officials wanting the titles on its bigger superstars when heading to Wrestlemania.
But my thinking—or maybe my hope—is that the WWE is finally paying attention to the mid-card and its titles.
Putting the belts on guys like Sheamus and Barrett make them seem more important, and that's exactly what many of us in the IWC have been calling for.
Make the U.S. title matter. Make the Intercontinental Championship matter. It's really that simple.
