Greg Valentine. Lasted more than a year.

 

 


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.


I look at it more like Tito would not give up the title chase, which is what made his cage match victory and his other battles with Greg so memorable for me. Who in their right mind thought that Tito would regain the title after such a long time? Not me.

Buddy Rogers also won a tournament in Rio De Janeiro April 1963 (beating Antonio Rocca) to become the first WWWF champion ~ you guys are just ignorant to the rich tradition and history of the city and I'll bet you the "results guys" don't give us their Rio De Janeiro stuff because of it's rareity and value.

Wasn't the Tito-Valentine feud the one where the old green IC belt was smashed and replaced with the more familiar IC design?

Yes, Valentine destroyed that ugly thing by smashing it against the steel cage.

I have to go with Randy Savage. I'm surprised no one has mentioned Shawn Michaels. I say he is a close second to Savage.

You just didn't give me time to find this thread. =P

I'd go with Shawn Michaels, he just seemed to really want that belt to mean something and did everything he could to do so.

After that -

Hennig
Savage
Hart
Muraco

To me, the following proved the most memorable and I've bolded who I feel was the best all-around:

Tito Santana (war with Greg Valentine over the title)

Randy Savage (battles with George Steele, Santana and Ricky Steamboat)

Magnificent Muraco (battled with Pedro Morales, arguably the most entertaining champ and probably best all around)

Honky Tonk Man (for the sheer level of hate he could get out of a crowd)

Curt Hennig (a perfect fit as Intercontinental Champion)

Bret Hart (used it as a spingboard to bigger things)

Shawn Micheals (ditto)

Jeff Hardy (has made a surprisingly entertaining champion the last little while, battling with Umaga and Johnny Nitro for the title)
