The Intercontinental Championship is a midcard championship within the WTX Universe series.
It was formerly the midcard championship of the SmackDown brand until the 2014 Draft in which the championship was exchanged with Raw's United States Championship.
The Intercontinental Championship debuted as the midcard championship of the SmackDown brand on the debut episode of WTX Universe back on January 29th 2012. The championship was held by Randy Orton who held it for 112 days before dropping it to Wade Barrett. This was the longest championship reign until Adam Rose's record setting 119 day reign as Intercontinental Champion.
The championship changed appearances each year, first having a black strap that changed to a white strap, the design became a much slimmer championship when Christian won it in 2014.
As part of the 2015 WWE Draft, Intercontinental Champion Cesaro was drafted to NXT, taking the championship with him.
