Classic WWE Intercontinental Championship Belt Re-Introduced



The classic WWE Intercontinental Championship belt (white belt) was re-introduced to WWE by Cody Rhodes at WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. He brought the classic belt out of a velvet case and threw the black belt in a brown paper bag.

Rhodes named Ricky Steamboat, Bret Hart, the late “Macho Man” Randy Savage, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and others before saying he would defend it with more honor than they did.

The impromptu Intercontinental Championship match against John Morrison was then announced by John Laurinaitis.
