The Miz vs. Wade Barrett Intercontinental title match looking likely for WrestleMania 29

Gallo Images

The WrestleMania 29 match card already has eight matches booked for April 7, 2013, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, but it looks likely the big event will be adding at least one more: An Intercontinental title match between champion Wade Barrett and challenger The Miz.

There are only three episodes of WWE television remaining before WrestleMania 29 hits MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sun., April 7, 2013, featuring The Rock vs. John Cena, Undertaker vs. CM Punk, and Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H. Those are the big three but there are five other bouts currently official for the show.

Now it looks likely the big event with get yet another one soon enough.

That's because The Miz has cooked up a feud with Intercontinental champion Wade Barrett over the past few weeks and it appears the two will be dancing at the "Showcase of the Immortals" with the strap on the line.

Miz campaigned for as much on the latest episode of "Backstage Fallout" following last night's edition of Monday Night Raw:

"I take every opportunity that's given to me. And that just shows the kind of courageous Intercontinental champion we have, getting hit in the private areas, I guess you could say in a PG forum, but he went out there and he caught the tail end of a figure four leglock and he tapped out. But I believe it's if you beat the Intercontinental champion in a non-title match, you get an Intercontinental title match. So, WrestleMania 29 is coming up. I'm free. I don't know what Wade's doing but I'd like an Intercontinental championship so Vickie Guerrero, Booker T, I don't care, Brickie, Teddy Long; somebody come talk to me. Or I might come to you. Either way, The Miz at WrestleMania 29 will be awesome."

Assuming this match is booked, that would give us the following WrestleMania 29 match card and line-up:

- The Rock vs. John Cena
- Undertaker vs. CM Punk
- Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H
- Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger
- Team Hell No vs. Dolph Ziggler, Big E. Langston
- Ryback vs. Mark Henry
- Chris Jericho vs. Fandango
- The Shield vs. Randy Orton, Sheamus, Big Show
- Wade Barrett vs. The Miz
