Should (heel) Jericho defeat Dean at mania to win his 10th Intercontinental championship?
Jericho is a better worker than most of the roster even on his "declining years" and he could put somebody over by having them beat him for the title somebody like Neville would make a good IC champ.
Is Wade Barrett elite? Has he guaranteed his spot in the WWE Hall of Fame someday?
no, if you have that many jobber title reigns they had nothing for you and you languished in the midcard forever
IC runs are like Vince testing if people actually like the guy, if you had to have 6 stop-and starts you weren't good enough to ascend the card
but yeah he'll probably go in if Koko B. Ware and Rikishi did
