Once upon a time ago the WWE intercontinental championship was one of the most prestigious titles in pro wrestling. Some of the greatest Feuds and rivalries in WWE history were for the intercontinental title. So today I celebrate the gold by looking back at the top 10 intercontinental champions of all time.
My first thought after watching Ezekiel Jackson win the WWE intercontinental title was to do a top 10 worst intercontinental champions blog. Yet on second thought rather than rag on today’s champion, I thought it would be a lot more fun to celebrate the lineage of this once great title.
Fortunately I grew up as a wrestling fan during the golden years of this title. This allows me to go back in time and dig deep for firsthand knowledge of these great champions. I based my list on appeal, number of great rivalries, length of championship reign, quality of matches, legacy, and drawing power as champion.
After a lengthy deliberation and a lot of list changes, here is my finalised 10 top WWE intercontinental champions of all time.
