Intercontinental Championship - Ultimate Warrior

August 28, 1989 - April 01, 1990

Four months after losing the Intercontinental Championship to Rick Rude in controversial fashion, the Ultimate Warrior was out to gain revenge. In the highly-anticipated rematch, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper made his way down to ringside and distracted Rude. The Warrior capitalized and hit a running shoulder block followed by his usual press slam and splash to regain the Intercontinental Championship.

The dominating Warrior never actually lost the Intercontinental Championship. Rather, he was forced to vacate it after defeating Hollywood Hogan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania VI.
