The journey of NXT season one winner Wade Barrett added a new chapter when he became the Intercontinental Champion. Since then, the member of The Corre has endured the wrath of Kofi Kingston, whom he took the belt from. Thanks to DQs, Barrett has kept the belt thus far, but has been on the losing end for the most part since winning the championship.
The Corre lost as a group at WrestleMania against the team of Big Show, Kane, Santino Marella and Kofi Kingston, who were all former holders of that belt with the exception of Big Show. Barrett's reign has, up to this point, been very disappointing. While it is still pretty early, Barrett may end up having one of the worst reigns in the more than 30 years of the title's history.
Barrett's reign is the 130th different reign in the history of the belt. Let's try and compare that with other bad reigns with one of the more respected belts in all of wrestling.
