Wade Barrett Captures The Intercontinental Championship (Pictures & Video)

On Friday’s SmackDown, Wade Barrett guaranteed that the next time he wrestles Kofi Kingston for the Intercontinental championship – he’s going to win the gold. At Saturday night’s WWE RAW tapings from Washington D.C., Barrett delivered.

The stipulation for the evening was “Champion’s Choice” – with WWE’s champions getting to chose who they would defend against on the show. Kofi Kingston chose Wade Barrett, which turned out to be a very bad decision.

WWE.com has since posted an article announcing the spoiler, so it appears the company is using the news of a title change to give fans another reason to tune in on Monday night.

Check out these pictures of Wade Barrett celebrating with the Intercontinental championship after the match:
