Once one of the most coveted belts in the pro wrestling business, the Intercontinental Championship is now a shadow of its former self.

That is why it was a welcomed development on Monday Night Raw this week, when we saw the announcement of an eight-man tournament to determine the No. 1 contender to Big E’s Intercontinental Championship.

A star-studded lineup, featuring no less than six world champions, was exactly the kind of boost that the title needed. The calibre of Superstars and the attention they bring means that the focus is firmly back on the beltas it so deservedly should be.

And after the first round of matches, we saw Cesaro, Sheamus, Bad News Barrett and Rob Van Dam progress at the expense of Mark Henry, Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio. But who will ultimately go on to emerge victorious?

This slideshow evaluates each man’s chances of winning the tournament and earning a shot at the Intercontinental Championship.
