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:

      That’s SEScoops playful wording for ya.

        How was our wording misleading? There was a new champion crowned. Titling the article, “New IC Champion Crowned” gives away a spoiler that Kofi lost the belt. “New WWE Champion Crowned” would be misleading, but we didnt do that either.

    “The stipulation for the evening was “Champion’s Choice”” … Simliar to TNA’s “Open Fight Night”.. I’m glad Wade won thouugh! About damn time!

      • BEASTziggler

        Ah ok

  • A real fan

    The longer Wade is the IC champ, the longer his is held in the mid-card. Wade has the charisma and physical presence to be up there with the upper-card. He deserves it a whole lot more than Sheamus!
