Intercontinental Championship - Stone Cold

August 03, 1997 - Present

Stone Cold captured his first Intercontinental Championship by winning what would turn out to be one of the most infamous matches of his illustrious career. At SummerSlam 1997, The Rattlesnake challenged Owen Hart for the title. During the match, Hart dropped Stone Cold on his head with an inverted piledriver. The blow caused temporary paralysis to Stone Cold, as well as much long-term damage. Somehow, however, Stone Cold managed to gather up enough strength and determination to cradle Hart from behind and get the win.
