Intercontinental Championship - Shelton Benjamin

February 20, 2006 - April 30, 2006

The arrival of Shelton Benjamin's momma immediately equated to a big win streak for Shelton. But no win was bigger than Shelton's match against the 16-time world champion Ric Flair on Raw in Trenton, N.J. With Flair in control, Benjamin's momma appeared to have a seizure outside the ring. While the referee attended to her and called for help, Shelton twice smashed Flair with momma's oxygen tank. A T-bone suplex later, Benjamin was the new Intercontinental Champion.

Benjamin's reign ended at Backlash when he was defeated by Rob Van Dam in a match pitting the Intercontinental Championship against RVD's Money in the Bank breifcase.
