Two-time and current champion Seth Rollins

The WWE Intercontinental Championship is a professional wrestling championship contested in and owned by the American promotion WWE on the Raw brand. The title was introduced into the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) in 1979. Pat Patterson, holder of the WWF North American Heavyweight Championship, was awarded the title (with the kayfabe explanation that he won a tournament in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and unified the North American and South American titles).[1][2][3]

The Intercontinental Championship has been called the second most important championship in the company, after the WWE Championship.[4] It has been active in WWE for the second longest period, but is the third oldest active title, behind the WWE Championship (1963) and the United States Championship (1975), the latter of which was acquired from World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 2001. In 2002, the WWF was renamed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and the championship was renamed as the WWE Intercontinental Championship.[5] As a result of the 2017 WWE Superstar Shake-up, it is exclusively contested on the Raw brand.

Overall, there have been 80 different Intercontinental Champions. Chris Jericho holds the record for the most reigns with nine, The Honky Tonk Man holds the longest reign at 454 days. Only three other wrestlers – Pedro Morales, Don Muraco, and Randy Savage – have held the championship for a continuous reign of more than a year. The current champion is Seth Rollins, who is in his second reign.
