For three decades, the Intercontinental Championship has been one of the most prestigious titles in wrestling. This 3-disc DVD set contains 27 battles for the title which were voted for by the fans on wwe.com.
As unbelievable as this might seem to newer fans, there was a time when this title was defended in the main event slot in arenas across the country.

- MSG 10/79: Pat Patterson vs. Ted DiBiase - This match takes place before DiBiase became a millionaire.
