Wade! Truth! Finally! Screen Time! For the Champ!
Did you know, dear Cagesiders, that WWE has this thing called the "Intercontinental Championship?" And it's actually supposed to be a pretty big deal! Did you know the current title holder is a Mr. Wade Barrett? And he's supposed to be pretty good?
Don't be too upset if you were unaware. I'm sure there are a lot of fans who have no damn clue, either.
It's borderline criminal how WWE has treated the Intercontinental Championship and Barrett. The man has been jobbed out, made to look like a fool, and barely receives any screen time. If you haven't been watching the product in recent months, you would be hard pressed to guess who the title holder was.
Or that the title was still in existence.
I know this has been rehashed over and over, but it still bears repeating: we are less than three weeks away from WrestleMania 29, and Barrett has no feud, storyline, angle, or opponent heading into the biggest show of the year.
The hope has to be Barrett is starting to finally pick up steam. Last Monday on Raw (March 18), the champion was in a strong Triple Threat Match against Chris Jericho and The Miz. The former Nexus leader retained, but on a roll up of all things. Tonight Barrett will face R-Truth and one can only expect him to look as weak as possible.
Again, there are less than three weeks left until WrestleMania 29. Even if WWE is planning on pulling the title from Barrett, it would be far more productive to make him look strong, no? Maybe we are finally starting to witness a change in the status quo.
In! Tonight's! Action! Bullet! Points! Mini! Spoilers!
Note: all matches are based on reports from last night's (March 19) taping. The endings will not be given away, but there may be slight spoilers. The card is always subject to change.
