Randy Orton def. Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett

Wade Barrett has not been a happy man of late. The Intercontinental Champion has been in a mood ever since WWE NXT underdog Bo Dallas eliminated him from the 2013 Royal Rumble Match and pinned him on Raw the next night. Barrett’s malaise seemed to have spread to the ring when he faced off against longtime rival Randy Orton in Atlanta. The Apex Predator and Barrett are extensively familiar with each other and experience favored Orton early on, as The Viper wasted little time in unloading on the Englishman, specifically targeting Barrett’s knee. The champion did not go easily, clawing and scraping his way to an advantage by hitting Orton with a Winds of Change that nearly put Orton away. But The Viper toughed his way to a kick-out at two, and he capitalized on Barrett’s frustration by lashing out with an RKO to end the champion’s evening.
