WWE Over the Limit Results: Ezekiel Jackson Beats Wade Barrett; What It Means

1 of 4

    So Ezekiel Jackson beat Wade Barrett by disqualification, but didn't take the Intercontinental title from him. What did we learn from the match? 

    Not a lot, really. It was a fairly dull bout altogether, as Jackson's brute force clashed with Barrett's snide stylings, who was terminated by a run-in from The Corre lackeys Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater. Again. 

    Still, we can muse upon one or two points. Let's think.

    In storyline terms, we've learnt nothing. We've seen that The Corre hate Ezekiel Jackson now. We've seen that Zeke is turning face. We've seen that Barrett can't beat Jackson cleanly and has to call on his underlings for assistance. But we knew all that anyway. 

    Barrett does, at least, keep his Intercontinental title, which perhaps means that he'll get some more decent singles matches in the weeks and months to come.

    In technical terms, we've learnt little. We found out on Friday that Jackson's mic skills aren't up to much. We already knew that Barrett is a great talker, but neither of them got the chance to say anything tonight. 

    We have, however, seen that Jackson isn't a great solo competitor, and terrific though Barrett is, he's not quite good enough to carry someone else through a match and make it entertaining.

    So what next? Zeke is obviously being pushed as a face, but he doesn't seem to be strong enough to thrive as a singles competitor outside the Corre; while ironically Barrett is strong enough to thrive as a solo heel outside the Corre, but he's definitely staying put. 

    Will Jackson join a new faction with Big Show and Kane, as per the tag-team on Friday's SmackDown? And can the Corre really stay together? It looks like that may indeed be the case.
