Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett def. Chris Jericho and The Miz

Wade Barrett found himself in an unenviable position on Monday night where not one but two former Intercontinental Champions wanted to get their hands on the brawling Brit’s mantle. But give credit where credit is due: The Barrett Barrage is far more than just lip service. Despite overwhelming odds and the pedigree of his two opponents, the Englishman managed to outwit and outfight both Chris Jericho and The Miz en route to retaining the prestigious championship in a Triple Threat Match that stemmed from a “Highlight Reel” gone sour the previous week on Raw.

With both Jericho and Miz spoiling for a fight, Barrett certainly had the deck stacked against him, but the champion turned the bout in his favor by taking advantage of Miz and Jericho’s considerable animosity for each other. The Englishman toughed it out against Jericho and Miz’s numerous attacks (including a Figure-Four Leglock/Lionsault combo that nearly hobbled him), until he was tossed from the ring and his opponents quickly turned on each other. Barrett bided his time on the outside, waiting until The Awesome One executed the Skull-Crushing Finale on Jericho before rolling up an unsuspecting Miz, notching the three-count and ensuring the great Barrett Barrage will continue on.
