    The IC title hasn’t been relevant in YEARS. The belt is PLAIN, there is no real hunger for it amongst the storylines. It’s like a token title – much like the U.S. Championship.

    Look, if they are going to give ANY of the championships any relevance, they need to get back to ONE WWE Championship (or the WORLD Championship … just make up your minds), the Intercontinental Championship, The Tag Team Championships and a WOMEN’S (not “Diva,” but WOMEN’S) Championship – THAT’S IT.

    Remember how important the IC title was back int he days of Macho Man/Steamboat, Honky Tonk Man, Ultimate Warrior, old school Shawn Michaels? WWE creative back then provided FOCUS for it. Seriously, WHO is hungering for the IC title these days – NO ONE.

    It’s like Vince McMahon decided to say “f*ck what WORKED before, I am the omnipotent god of wrestling and you’ll take whatever I shove down your throats.”

  • CM SUCKS

    kofi is no jobber ..get ur facts straight

  • CM Mark

    Seriously though, there are LOTS of people who deserve to be in the IC title hunt. Very poor use of the IC champ. They built up the IC belt with Dolph and then dump it back on the everlasting jobber Kofi. Why do they even pay WWE creative?

  • mark

    its a non title match so they will have del rio win the match to keep his momentum going for mania

  • misfit del rio

    @ me, pretty damn good idea. Kinda like when warrior faced hogan in toronto, me likes. See marky mark, you tool that’s pretty good don’t be so negative on our future world champion.

  • Jesse

    ?? thats a dumb idea.kingston is overrated. but i think they should have him beat del rio at the ppv.

  • jus saiyan

    SPOILER CONTAINED:
    seeing as teddy ‘fired’ dolph wouldnt it make sense that the open spot in the chamber went to del rio, so he has a decent start to the lead up to wrestlemania against edge? that way kofi could have a IC match at e-chamber. my thoughts at least..

  • Jimbo

    Hah, creative realized at the last second that the Royal Rumble winner didn’t have a match at EC and threw this together. Nice going.

  • ??

    No…. Bad idea. How about if Kingston wins, he gets added to the WHC match at Wrestlemania. Now thats pure genius.

  • CM Mark

    @Me
    NO THANK YOU!

  • Me

    Make it an intercontinental championship match and have Del Rio win then let him beat Edge at WrestleMania to become both IC champ and WHC …………… PURE GENIUS
