Wade Barrett Calls Champion An "Embarrassment," SmackDown Rating, WWE Stars On "The Soup" (Video)

- It appears that Wade Barrett's next feud will be with WWE Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston. WWE.com caught up with Barrett following last night's Survivor Series pay-per-view, who issued a message to Kingston.


"I personally eliminated the Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston," Barrett said. "I've beaten him in the past — I've beaten him for the Intercontinental title in the past — that title should be around my waist. The fact that Kofi Kingston is walking around as the Intercontinental Champion is an embarrassment to WWE."
