The Intercontinental Championship—once upon a time WWE's second most prestigious honor—has been held by 69 superstars, but 10 stand out better than the rest.
So what does it take to make the list?
The amount of title reigns is important. Likewise, an immense amount of total days with the belt factors in.
But it's not just the reigns or total number.
Each individual title reign should be somewhat impressive as well. The man who holds the title seven times for 20 days each falls down in the order.
Lastly, what each individual brought to the title was considered. Was it a misstep in the belt's history, a stopgap, a joke—or did holding the IC title do what it was intended and propel its owner?
These 10 guys were the greatest and most important IC champions of all time.
