5 WWE Superstars who could be the next Intercontinental Champion
The Intercontinental Championship is the third oldest championship currently active in the WWE and is only behind the WWE Championship and the United States Championship. The Championship dating back to 1979 has been held by many legends in the industry.
The title was held by 79 different superstars in the WWE and has helped to elevate those stars into superstardom.The current champion is the WWE's resident big dog Roman Reigns, enjoying his first reign with the championship.
Over the years the Intercontinental Championship helped to create the stars and legends we know today. Now let's see which five superstars could be next in line to hold the prestigious championship.
#5 Samoa Joe
It's well-known that Roman Reigns is en route to challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 34. The question is what will Roman Reigns be going into Wrestlemania with the intercontinental championship? I guess we have the answer for that because it is rumoured that Reigns will be dropping the Intercontinental Championship shortly after the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January.
The person who is rumoured to dethrone Reigns is none other but the Samoan submission machine.
Samoa Joe is has won the NXT Championship twice, but he has not yet won any major championship on the main roster. That can all change provided that the rumours turn into reality, Samoa Joe can be walking into his first Wrestlemania as the new Intercontinental Champion.
