Wade Barrett def. Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston

Wade Barrett has never been a man to mince words, so it wasn't exactly surprising he claimed the Intercontinental Championship should be his following the Englishman's elimination of Kofi Kingston in the Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match the night before. But the Englishman certainly left a few jaws on the floor in Nutter Center when he grounded The Dreadlocked Dynamo with minimal fanfare, bestowing Kofi with his second Bull Hammer elbow in as many nights to earn a huge statement win over the freewheeling champion.

Kofi, as always, proved a handful for his opponent. Barrett struggled early on to find his groove as Kofi stymied the Englishman with his trademark, high-flying offensive maneuvers. Seeking separation, Barrett ultimately turned the tide as only he could: He kicked Kofi Kingston really hard in the face. The Brit's boot sent The Boom Squad General over the ropes, where Barrett subjected Kofi to a street-style beatdown by slamming the champion's head against the steel steps before hauling him back into the ring to finish the job. Barrett unloaded with a series of elbows and kicks to the stunned Kofi, who responded to the adversity in a very un-Kofi like way:

He got really, really angry.

"The Wildcat" found his second wind in a big way and unleashed an offensive storm against the brawling Brit, reversing the Winds of Change into a rollup pin, unleashing a series of kicks against Barrett and finally planting him with the SOS. It wasn't enough for the win, though, as Barrett rebounded and raked Kofi's eyes, finally unleashing the Bull Hammer and sending the Intercontinental Champion to dream street.
