Intercontinental Championship - Lance Storm

July 23, 2001 - August 19, 2001

The Intercontinental Championship quickly became a large focus of the WCW/ECW invasion of WWE. The WCW/ECW Alliance was coming off an impressive showing at the Invasion pay-per-view and Lance Storm looked to keep their momentum going against Albert. But Albert got off to a quick start and was dominating the entire match. Alliance member Mike Awesome came down to make the save for Storm. X-Pac followed, though and cut him off. Albert became distracted while this was going on, and Storm was able to score the pin, giving him the Intercontinental Championship.
