RVD - Former six-time Intercontinental Champion

There are three men who have all held the Intercontinental Championship six times, so they have been separated by how many cumulative days they have accrued across all title reigns.

Rob Van Dam won his first IC title at Wrestlemania X8, his debut appearance at the showcase of the immortals.

Seemingly destined for main-event stardom, RVD traded the IC belt with Eddie Guerrero in sterling matches before trading the title once more with technical wizard Chris Benoit, resulting in RVD winning his third IC strap in a tremendous match at Summerslam 2002.

However, Van Dam's subsequent main-event run was short-lived and he returned to the IC ranks in 2003, wherein he traded the belt with perennial champion Chris Jericho.

RVD's final reign as IC champ occurred in 2006, when he beat Shelton Benjamin in a Money in the Bank briefcase vs IC title winner take all match, wherein he left the match with the briefcase and belt.

RVD's IC reigns were never particularly long but they were always exciting.
