Bad News Barrett def. Rob Van Dam to become No. 1 contender to the Intercontinental Championship

Bad news, everyone: Big E may yet get a face full of elbow at Extreme Rules because Bad News Barrett is officially the No. 1 contender to the Intercontinental Championship. Granted, the Brit should send a thank-you basket to Jack Swagger and Cesaro for their opportune assist that sealed the victory, but as setups go you could do worse than the battering Barrett visited upon the ECW Original.

Faced with the famed unorthodox style of RVD, Barrett brought the bout into his wheelhouse by throwing his foe against the barrier and doubling him over with a thwacking kick to the gut. Despite Barrett’s escalating barrage, Van Dam persevered and shifted the balance with a flurry of offense, though the arrival of Cesaro and Swagger – whose rivalry seems to have encompassed Van Dam as well – gave Barrett the opportunity to knee RVD’s Five Star Frog Splash into failure and claim the victory with a Bad News elbow to the face.
