Who was it?

Patterson was the first and put it on the map. Patera and Morales took it a step higher. Muraco/Santana/Valentine kept it going. Savage did well enough with it to turn it into a springboard to the World title. The Honkey Tonk Man had the longest reign. Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels both had solid reigns with proved to be the start of bigger things for them both ~ and I believe that Jeff Jarrett has had it more times than anyone else (six times?)

So who really was the greatest?

I only saw the tail end of Muraco, but I liked him.  Santana had a good run.  He took on all comers, but I don't really remember any memorable feuds.

Greg Valentine. Lasted more than a year.

I like Muraco and Santana, but I admit I have fond memories of the Honky Tonk Man.  A while back I watched a tape with his win over Steamboat... it was hilarious when after he won Honky took the belt and pretended to play the guitar.  Wrestling purists everywhere cried.

Patterson, mainly because I consider him in my top 5.

I have to give it to Honky Tonk Man...He sold more tickets as IC Champ than anyone. 

1.  Honky Tonk Man

2.  Tito Santana

3.  Randy Savage

4.  Razor Ramon

5.  Greg Valentine

That Razor Ramon actually isn't a bad pick. Four time I-C champion.

Randy Savage was good. "Macho Madness". Honkey Tonk was all gimmick (everyone was sure he would lose every match) and at the time I hated it, but it seems okay now.

Muraco had some good feuds born out of him and the belt (Santana, Johnson, Snuka, Morales) and perhaps he is the best "pre sports entertainment pick in my eyes.

I vote Savage, since he was champ when the WWF would do 2-3 shows a night and depending on Hogan's schedule, the IC belt was the main belt you'd see defended all the time.


The title really never meant that much before or since.

I don't remember a big build up.  I remember Tito losing to Greg, and then coming back from injury with the figure 4 as his new finisher.  The ending to the cage match when Tito regains the belt was one of my favorite endings.  I viewed that as Valentine's reign, because the feud took place while he was the champ. 

Was there a series of matches, or angle that took place prior to Tito losing to Valentine?

Santana defended it against everyone, and seemed like he could lose to anyone, so I liked his run, but not him.
