Intercontinental Championship Makes History At Extreme Rules

Tonight’s Extreme Rules main event featured Seth Rollins challenging Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship, which marks the second time ever that the title by itself has main evented a WWE pay-per-view.

The IC title has been defended in the main event in multi-title matches before, but tonight’s show marked the second time the title has been in the main event by itself. The only other time the Intercontinental Championship main evented a show was the Bret Hart versus Davey Boy Smith match at Summerslam 1992.
