Intercontinental Championship - Triple H

August 30, 1998 - Present

Just more than six months after their first Intercontinental Championship match, Triple H squared off against The Rock. This time the Rock was the champion, and was the head of the Nation of Domination. Triple H was the leader of their rivals, D-Generation X. The two leaders engaged in a brutal Ladder Match. Mark Henry came out to try and help The Rock, but it was Chyna who had the last laugh who gave The Rock a low blow taking him out of commission. A knee injury would later force Triple H to vacate the title.
