5 greatest Intercontinental Champions of all time
The prestigious title has seen some spectacular performers hold it over the years.
One of the most historic championships currently in WWE, the Intercontinental Championship has a lineage which spans decades, and consists of some of the greatest wrestlers to have ever graced the WWE ring.
Perennially known as the stepping stone for up and coming Superstars, many Superstars have held this title before going on to bigger and better things. Once regarded as the most valuable thing in WWE after the WWE Championship, sometimes even being treated as equal, it has fallen by the wayside in recent times.
However, after a troubled period in recent years, the championship has once again redeemed its prestige due to the Superstars who've held the title. We look at five of the greatest wrestlers to have held this title in WWE.
#5 The Miz
Former WWE Champion, The Miz, has brought back the prestige associated with the IC title in recent years. One of the greatest Superstars to hold the title in the modern era, the 8-time and reigning IC champion has become synonymous with the IC title.
The Miz is a former WWE Champion who never really found success on top of the card, but has made the mid-card his own. His promo on Talking Smack back in 2016 made headlines and led to him becoming a very popular Superstar in the WWE. The Miz's popularity knows no bounds, and is currently one of the finest "true" heels left in WWE.
The A-Lister is hands down a future Hall of Fame inductee, and his reigns as IC title will go down in history as some of the finest.
