    I hope Miz wins… He’s actually become one of my favorite in ring preformers and, with the addition of this title win, he’ll be a nice 4-0 at Wrestlemania.

      He’s lost the titles with John Morrison a few years ago at Mania. Sorry, he isn’t undefeated.

        That match was pre show so it technically doesn’t count.

        It was a Pre-show get it. PRE as in before the show so yes he is undefeated at wrestlemania

  • omega riddler

    We may actually get a decent Intercontinental Title match this year, nice

    • Mizery

      No we won’t…the Miz is in the match.

      • omega riddler

        it will be better than the jbl vs rey mysterio or big show vs cody rhodes match

        • cappa37

          No it won’t.

            yes it will those matches combine are a max 6mins

  • That guy

    technically Miz lost at Mania but it wasnt televised. Miz and Jomo lost the tag titles to the Colons like 4,5 or 6 years back.

    Title vs Streak 3-0

    • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

      He’s lost before.

        Doesnt count, sir.

    They need to get Jobber extraordinaire Antonio Cesaro on this card ASAP! How many matches has that man lost clean while holding the US title ? And not just once a month, but weekly..hahaha That’s not right man… He must feel terrible. Cesaro should do what Scott Hall did back in ’99, throw the belt out in the trash can. Then the other jobber Zack “Push Me” Ryder can pick it up from the trash Jim Duggan style and feel better about himself…

    Wade(IC) vs Cesaro(US) in a champion v champion winner take all match would have been a better fit for Wretlemania!

      totally agree. i was thinking something similar to that. team hell no vs cesaro and barett. winner gets all 4 titles

  • Jerichoholic4life

    i hope barrett retains but if he loses then i hope they will push just like what happened to ziggy when he lost the united states championship

    why is this match on the wrestlemania card. we have seen miz and barett fight 3 times during the road to wrestlemania. atleast make it a pre-show match. it takes away the excitement from WM, just to fill a spot

    I must say this match will be terrible if Miz loses mainly because he has had two US title shots and now two IC shots so Miz is clearly in the running to be a title holder soon.
    I Know also that WWE are trying to put Wade over but i think that Wade should have a WHC shot at a PPV soon
