Intercontinental Championship Prestige?

Cody Rhodes revealed the old Intercontinental Championship and talked about the Intercontinental Championship Prestige throughout the years and the many classic matches that involved the Intercontinental Championship. Does this mean WWE's going to bring back the Intercontinental Championship back to its former glory, I'd like to think so, but does that mean it's going to happen?
There's no denying that Cody Rhodes has been doing rather well with the Intercontinental Championship and has become a credible champion or at least that's my opinion. Cody has definitely succeeded in getting people to talk about the Intercontinental Championship. So, I thought I'd run down a small list of wrestlers who I believe can help bring back the prestige to the Intercontinental Championship.
Justin Gabriel: Here is a superstar who I believe would make a great Intercontinental Champion, but it's a matter of whether or not he gets a chance to showcase his abilities. He seems to be more a little more versatile and could compete against almost anybody on the roster.
Ted DiBiase: Here's a second generation superstar that has been lost in shuffle, but I feel like he hasn't been given an opportunity to showcase abilities. Everybody thought he'd be the more successful singles wrestler when Legacy disband, but it turned out to be the exact opposite. However, I think he could have a lot of great feuds and I think he would be a great Intercontinental Championship.
Heath Slater: I'm still debating whether or not I should include Heath Slater on this list, but I thought I'd include him because I think he has potential to make a good Intercontinental Champion in a few years. As it stands now. He's not credible enough to become champion, but I'd like to see WWE give him a chance to showcase his abilities.
Daniel Bryan: He's a little small compared to a lot of other wrestlers, but I think he would be a great Intercontinental Champion. He has paid his dues on throughout the indy promotions and has a tremendous amount of technical wrestling ability. He's already had a successful reign as United States Champion, so why not see a Intercontinental Championship reign?
Wade Barrett: Granted he's a big man and still a little green around the edges, but he's already held the Intercontinental Championship once and in my honest opinion his Intercontinental Championship reign was a flop. However, I think in a couple years from now Wade Barrett could make a believable champion. He hasn't had much credibly to him, but he's basically been lost in the shuffle and a few really good feuds would certainly help cement him into becoming a believable Intercontinental Champion.
Randy Orton: Here is a superstar that has held the Intercontinental Championship before and had a successful reign as champion. It would be a great start to have a credible wrestler put over somebody who lacks credibility. It would be a similar to Triple H and Shelton Benjamin back when Shelton first got drafted to Monday Night Raw.
Conclusion: There are a lot of wrestlers that have the ability to become a great Intercontinental Champion, but it's all matter of whether or not WWE wants to showcase their talent properly. Longer title reigns would definitely help Intercontinental Championship credibility, while keeping the title away from guys like Jinder Mahal, Ezekiel Jackson and Sheamus.
Anyways those are just my thoughts and I hope that I'll get some discussion about this whether or not you agree or disagree, comment below and give me your thoughts and opinions. This was my first blog and I hope you enjoyed it!
