At Sunday’s Hell in a Cell PPV, Intercontinental champion Cody Rhodes announced that he’s bringing back the classic IC title used in the late 80’s through the late 90’s. Rhodes pledged to return the Intercontinental title to its former glory and began this new chapter in the belt’s history by defending the gold against John Morrison.
To many, the classic Intercontinental championship reminds them of a time when the belt meant something and was held by some of the most legendary WWE superstars of all time, including Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat, Mr. Perfect, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon, Steve Austin and The Rock.
