5.0 out of 5 stars Does The Title Justice December 4, 2008

This championship has definitely has it's history of ups & downs over the years but nobody can deny that the Intercontinental Championship has provided some of the most memorable matches & memories throughout it's history & here is a collection of some of those matches & memories as voted by the fans on WWE's website. Now this format is different than how WWE did their "History Of WWE Championship" in that they don't give a timelime of champions throughout the presentation but Todd Grisham host the DVD & give the same role as he did in the Ladder Match DVD where he gives a brief overview of the wrestler or event spotlighted.

Matches Include:
Pat Patterson vs. Ted DiBiase - Patterson kept stalling early on in the beginning before Dibiase finally charged & worked him over with a ground & pound offense with both men trading momentum taking advantage of a mistake made by their opponent with Dibaise having the wrestling advantage while Patterson resorted in rule breaking tactics resulting in what was a good match for it's time.
"MSG" Oct. '79

Ken Patera vs. Pedro Morales - Pedro's hot temper led to his control early on with various punches & even choking before Patera was able to catch a break using not only his strength with strength such as bearhugs from different positions to dominate but also choking himself with the breaking down into a huge physical brawl. This was a good match with both men being more physical than usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Big Portion of Wrestling History August 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For anyone who is a fan of wrestling, this is a must. The IC title is one of the most prestigious titles in professional wrestling. Many times, it is known as the "Workman's Title" because the holders of this title are known to be some of the hardest workers in the wrestling business. This dvd captures some of the most memorable matches in the title's history. An absolute great dvd.

4.0 out of 5 stars The WWE's work horse title September 24, 2012
Much like the History of the WWE Championship DVD, we have this good but certainly not great collection of some of the most famous and some never before seen WWE Intercontinental Championship encounters. Hosted sadly by Todd Grisham, we go through the '80s, '90's and up until the year of the DVD release 2008. There's a brief history of how Pat Patterson became the first I.C. champion and that brings us to the first match.

Disc 1-1980's

-10/22/79, MSG, Pat Patterson (Champion) vs. Ted DiBiase: Its a pre-Million Dollar Man match featuring DiBiase and sadly thats the best part of the match as its kinda slow, there's some stalling in the beginning by Patterson who gets booed heavily. Ted attacks swinging Pat into the corner and stomping on him, then works on the left arm with knee drops and an arm bar. He has the offense going for a while even dodging a dive in the corner by Patterson, then slaps on an abdominal stretch, not once but twice. Patterson counters out of the second one then punches and chokes Ted, who comes back and grabs a foreign object Pat tried introducing but gets rolled up for three and Patterson retains. 4/10, cause of the slow stalling and rest holds.

-10/20/80, MSG, Ken Patera (Champion) vs. Pedro Morales: Right from his entrance Morales attacks Patera before he could even get ready and he retreats up the entrance way for a minute, then stalls and taunts Pedro holding the title in his hand. Pedro hits some hard punches sending him to the outside, but gets hit by Ken and tossed over the top to the floor. Ken works over Pedro for a while with a front face lock and holds it forever seemingly, Morales powers out tossing Ken over his head to the mat. Pedro does comeback with some hard shots, but Patera cuts him off working on the back with a bearhug.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection November 25, 2008
Having been a wrestling fan since the mid-80's, I was greatly looking forward to this collection of Intercontinental matches. having collected many of the wrestling DVD collections, the Intercontinental title doesn't always get many appearances. Granted, this also depends on the DVD. The Ladder Match DVD had many great matches. Yet I am surprised there is so much bickering about matches that appeared. Whether people want to believe the voting may have been rigged in some way, we will never know. Nevertheless, there are many great matches here that deserve to be included in this collection.

For me, standout matches included the Steamboat/Savage classic from Wrestlemania 3, Hart/Perfect from Summerslam 1991, Hart/Bulldog one year later at the same event, Ramon/Michaels from Wrestlamania X, Triple H/Rock from Fully Loaded, Edge/Orton from Vengeance 2004, and Flair/Triple H from Taboo Tuesday. Were all the great matches for this prestigious title included? Of course not! You can't please everybody. But for me, a lifelong wrestling fan that has been watching since I was four, it is a great collection. I know people will disagree with me, but that is my attention. As one other reviewer mentioned, I hope they continue this Championship series by covering the history of the Tag Team Championship. Of all the titles in WWE history, it will be the last that traces its history far back and up to today.

By the way, for the people that are complaining about there not being enough Randy Savage matches, I think his two best matches for this DVD were included. I saw many of his others, and they just weren't worthy of being on this collection. Do I wish a Savage DVD comes about one day? Of course!

If this is the history of the Intercontinental Championship then I think they should go back to the late 70's when the belt was introduced. Hopefully it's a three disc set. I've never seen the Jimmy Snuka vs Don Muraco match that Mick Foley talks about so eloquently about and that match was the... Read More
