Three-time and current champion Dolph Ziggler

The WWE Intercontinental Championship is a professional wrestling championship contested in and owned by the American promotion WWE. The title was introduced into WWE in 1979, which was known as the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) at the time. Pat Patterson, holder of the WWF North American Heavyweight Championship, was awarded the title (with the explanation that he won a fictional tournament in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).[1][2][3]

The WWE considers the Intercontinental Championship to be the second most important championship in the company, after the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.[4] In 2002, the WWF was renamed to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). After the name change, the title was renamed the WWE Intercontinental Championship.[5]

Overall there have been 72 different Intercontinental Champions. Chris Jericho holds the record for the most reigns with nine, The Honky Tonk Man holds the longest reign (454 days from June 13, 1987 to August 29, 1988). Only four men in history have held the championship for a continuous reign of one year (365 days) or more. They are Pedro Morales, Don Muraco, Randy Savage, and The Honky Tonk Man.
