The title is worth some history. The Intercontinental Title is one of the most important championships in wrestling history. Over the years, dozens of future World Champions and Hall of Famers have held the title, which has become known as the workrate title for its incredible matches. The title debuted forty years ago this past Sunday and WWE knows how to celebrate something like that.
WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube page, looking at the history of the Intercontinental Title by the numbers. The video includes historical stats and records, with a look at some of the most important and successful champions over the title’s history. Also included is a look at some trivia about the title wins themselves. This is the same kind of video that WWE releases every year for the Royal Rumble.
I could watch this kind of thing every day. Check out the title by the numbers:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that never gets old for me as you can never hear all of the history that the title has. It has changed the careers of a long list of legends and jump started even more. It’s rather cool that the title is getting the attention that it deserves, though I could go for some more of the extra old school stuff, with less of the 90s that WWE is focusing on.
