Top 15 Worst Intercontinental Champions of All-Time

The Intercontinental Championship has always been looked at as a stepping stone for a wrestler. It's a title that recognizes that the individual has a ton of potential to be the WWE Champion some day, but not quite yet. We've seen it many times where the IC strap catapults a star into a superstar. The Macho Man, Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels are examples of wrestlers that took the belt and ran to greatness. We also have other cases where the title reign amounted to nothing. Sometimes it was a case of a poor gimmick or the company not pushing the wrestler enough. Sometimes it was a case of the wrestler just lacking in talent. There were also instances where it was a bit of both. Did you know that Carlito once held the second most prestigious belt in the company? It was a 155 day run! Granted, he wouldn't qualify as one of the worst but he was definitely one that got lost in the shuffle. Shelton Benjamin also had a 244 day reign that has been forgotten about, but he'd likely constitute as an underrated IC champion as he had a ton of potential and was misused. The same could be said for Drew McIntyre who is currently ripping it up in the indies.

We could go on all day when it comes to talking about wrestlers that flew under the radar and those who were misused, which we discuss here, but that is not the point of this article. This list will be a tribute to those who were the best at being the worst. Let's dive into this catastrophe and see the top 15 worst Intercontinental Champions of all-time!

Shane Douglas was actually a pretty talented wrestler and had a solid run in ECW. Unfortunately for Shane, his "board of education gimmick" was so awful that it gives "The Boogeyman" character a run for its money.

There's a famous (true) story that involved Shawn Michaels getting jumped outside a nightclub. If you ask him, he was jumped by 12 marines. Others claim that Michaels was so belligerent and intoxicated that he picked a fight with a few randoms and they laid the "smackdown" on him. Regardless, this incident put Michaels out of action for a bit as he had to recover from injuries. Douglas was handed the title due to Michaels' inability to defend it...and he lost it 10 minutes later to Razor Ramon. This whole debacle makes Douglas, without a shadow of a doubt, the worst Intercontinental Champion of all-time.
