Everyone's road to a world title has to start somewhere.

Stone Cold Steve Austin set his sights on the WWE title when he handed the Intercontinental title to The Rock, stating he was focusing on bigger things in the future.

For Wade Barrett, the TLC pay-per-view on Dec. 16 is the stepping stone to him becoming a WWE champion. And no, I am not talking about winning an Intercontinental title or the United States title, or something other than the WWE title or the World Heavyweight championship.

In other words, the road to greatness starts in five days.

Barrett, who has returned from injury with a vengeance and run through many a WWE superstar, is being caught in a holding pattern of sorts while the WWE tries to figure itself out of the purgatory it has placed itself in with poor booking, injuries and no real direction on SmackDown and a losing battle with ratings and direction on Raw.

Had it not been for an upper arm injury which sidelined the Brit from action at the beginning of this year, Barrett may have already been wearing the title held by Ric Flair, Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton.

The fact that we are still seeing Barrett battle the likes of Orton, Sheamus and now Kofi Kingston is a commentary on how the WWE writers are truly lost and have no direction.

Now is the time for Vinnie Mac's boys to come correct and see that to find their way back to clarity is to put the gold strap on Barrett and let him lead the WWE into 2013 and beyond.

Known as a brawler and enforcer, I see Barrett as a combination of Ole Anderson, Bruiser Brody and Triple H. He is the perfect fit for a champion in line with the styles of Sheamus, Big Show and the antithesis of style in say a Daniel Bryan or a Kofi Kingston.

Why he is challenging Kingston for the title is beyond me. While the match could be the best of the night in Brooklyn, I see this more as miscast for the 6'7" 252-pounder.

A match like this helps Kingston, but does little for Barrett. In that case, maybe Barrett should pull a "Steve Austin" and declare he needs to seek greener pastures. Those roads should lead him right to the World title.

I think Kofi vs. Barrett is going to be hard to predict

if barret wins the title, it would give kofi a perfect oppurtunity to step up his game in a feud to win title back

nice little piece man, i'm a big fan of barrett myself. i definitely want to see him in the world title picture soon and i agree with u, if he didn't get injured earlier this year i think he may have won the WHC at some point. hopefully we won't have to wait much longer.

i suppose the question is, what if barrett looses at tlc? what would that mean for his career? that loss on raw to truth was disgusting. truth is a future nobody and if barrett is to lose to the likes of him at least protect him with some interference.

I for one cannot stand Kofi and I don't think I ever have or really will. He will never be WWE or WHC title material unlike Barrett. And for him to win the IC title Sunday should put him on the road to be in the hunt for the main title soon. I would not mind seeing Barrett and Punk go at it. Tha...
