Intercontinental Championship - Edge

July 11, 2004 - September 06, 2004

After a more than a one year absence due to a neck injury, Edge returned to WWE after WrestleMania in March and quickly reasserted himself among the top contenders for the Intercontinental Championship. Edge got his shot against Randy Orton at Vengeance. After several momentum shifts and near falls, Edge hit the spear and pinned Orton for his fifth Intercontinental Championship. Unfortunately for Edge, he was forced to vacate the title less than one month into his reign because of injury.
