The Miz vs. Wade Barrett for the WWE Intercontinental Championship in a Ladder Match

For the last time, Wade Barrett will likely defend his Intercontinental Championship against The Miz. They have fought on Raw, Smackdown, and Pay Per View over the past few months. It should be the final chapter in a story that has many holes in it. My biggest problem is where is the personal hatred for one another? Once they started out, it was all about The Miz getting the title back. There has been little progression in his character, lacking a new and creative way for him to get over. He is a great talent and Wade Barrett is fantastic, but does anyone want to see these guys square off AGAIN? The only way to intrigue me in this is to have a ladder match. With both men talking about how they are the best IC Champions of all time, it would be fitting to bring the specialty match that spotlighted this once prestigious title. The Miz vs. Wade Barrett looks like it is all but sealed for a spot on the card. I am interested to see if they can make a bigger connection with the fans over the next few weeks. If they do, it could be a show stealer match. If they cannot, this unfortunately may become a bathroom break for many of the fans in attendance.
