The WWE Intercontinental Championship is widely hailed as one of the most prestigious championships in the world of professional wrestling. So, it's a shame that WWE haven't done enough to maintain the prestige and significance the title once held.

The title, currently being held by Shinsuke Nakamura, has yet to receive a proper feud on the main roster in quite some time.

Considering that A.J. Styles' current reign as the United States Championship has received quite the praise from the WWE Universe, it's unfortunate the same cannot be said about the King of Strong Style.

Even though the former NXT Champion defended the Intercontinental Championship at WWE Smackville against Ali, the creative team doesn't seem to have any legitimate plans moving forward.

As much as we would want to see Nakamura showcase his offensive innovation as the I.C. Champion, we genuinely feel it's about time the company makes the title relevant and prestigious again.

Therefore, let's dive into some never seen before feuds that could legitimately help WWE's Intercontinental Championship.

#1 Aleister Black Vs. Ali

Starting the proceedings with what could very well be a game changing feud for the Intercontinental Championship.

Aleister Black and Ali are two individuals who are yet to grab the proverbial brass ring and fighting for a title as prestigious as the I.C. Championship could give them the right amount of television time on the main roster.


The feud definitely has a nice ring to it, with Ali's 'Chasing Light' gimmick tussling it out with Aleister Black's dark ambitions inside the squared circle.

Moreover, both the performers possess the ability to deliver a match of the year contender and if done right, the Intercontinental Championship could regain its prestige back.

It's a win-win situation, you see. Considering that WWE would be heading into FOX Sports soon, starting with this feud could pay the right amount of dividends.
