IC Hero's: The Beginning
The WWE Intercontinental Championship was brought into the company in 1971 when the WWWF at the time decided to unify the North and South American Championship titles. Even though nobody really knows why they chose Pat Patterson to become first champion there is no doubt that Pat didn't great things for the championship title in it's early days. See the reason I say is because Pat was neither the North or South American champion and the suppose to tournament he won never actually happened. But either way the title was a hot topic and the breading for future World Champions in it's early years.
Fast forward to the modern era and the Intercontinental title had fallen on some hard times to say the least as I believe the importance of the championship got so low that the WWE could've retired it and nobody would have cared in the slightest. That before the most recent title reign though, because in my opinion not only did The Miz resurrect his career, but he also resurrected the Intercontinental championship in the process as well. Over the 187 days or so The Miz has been in many ways the top heel on WWE TV and right now is in the prime of his career and he should that with his title run.
Seeing how successful his title reign had been it gave me an idea to now move the spotlight to those who gave importance and meaning this legendary championship. For the first time in a while we have a new series ready to kick off with an interesting concept and though you don't know what I mean yet, you'll find out when this series returns, because its a surprise.
