WWE News: Bad News Barrett stripped of the Intercontinental Title, new champion to be crowned at Battleground
Bad News Barrett's separated shoulder will keep him out of action for "several months" according to Michael Cole's update during Raw. Thus, he has been stripped of the Intercontinental Championship, and a battle royal will be held to determine the new champion at the Battleground pay-per-view.
Powell's POV: I'm not a fan of a battle royal determining the new champion, but I like the way they immediately had Paul Heyman establish Cesaro as the favorite by pointing out that he won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 30.
