Intercontinental Championship - Ultimate Warrior

August 29, 1988 - April 02, 1989

The Honky Tonk Man went on to become one of the most successful Intercontinental Champions in WWE history, as he held the title for 14 months and 27 days. Unfortunately for Honky Tonk Man, though, he lost the championship in the shortest amount of time in WWE history. Honky Tonk Man's opponent was supposed to have been Brutus Beefcake, but due to an injury, a replacement had to be named. Ultimate Warrior (a relative newcomer) stormed the ring and took it right to the champ. A gorilla press slam, splash and 10 seconds later a new Intercontinental Champion was crowned.
