It’s shocking that such a legendary name has been ignored for so long.
I’d like to ask you to take a seat for this: In the grueling match that took place on Saturday between Gunther and Sheamus,
The Intercontinental Championship was defended on pay-per-view or pay-per-view equivalent for the first time in nearly 500 days.
Exact time and date: 511 days ago, at WrestleMania 37, Apollo Crews won the Intercontinental Championship by defeating Big E.
Since then, Apollo Crews, Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, and Ricochet have defended their titles on SmackDown.
It’s ludicrous that there are two different champions for what has always been the most coveted title in the WWE.
Even a title in WWE that is as undervalued as the Women’s Tag Team Title can seldom go for an extended period of time without being challenged for it.
Gunther has successfully defended the Intercontinental Championship against Ricochet, R-Truth, Nakamura, and now Sheamus. He last beat Sheamus.
Everyone liked his Clash at the Castle bout versus Celtic Warrior. The Intercontinental Championship may soon gain increased pay-per-view broadcast.
