Cesaro is said to be the favorite to win the Intercontinental title at WWE Battleground in Tampa later this month. The wrestlers in the battle royal so far are Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Big E, Rob Van Dam, Alberto Del Rio, Bo Dallas, Great Khali, Kofi Kingston, and Damien Sandow.
Cesaro is the favorite because he’s been losing lately. He is still one of the three people being earmarked for top spots at WrestleMania 31 along with the Wyatt Family and Roman Reigns. One of the reasons why Barrett was given the IC title is because the booking of the IC and U.S. champions has been bad but Barrett is looked at to be the exception.
