Wrestlezone’s Top 10: Intercontinental Champions

Josh Isenberg

Number 10: Honkey Tonk Man

The historic number is 454 days. That is one of the longest title reigns in Intercontinental Championship history. With the career he had, Honkey Tonk Man was known more for his comedy than his actual wrestling. He created a gimmick that was completely ripped off from Elvis, but still got over with the crowd in a time where gimmicks were not really that outlandish. His feuds were not extremely memorable, but that long streak is something you cannot forget. For over 15 months, Honkey Tonk Man was able hold the belt and make some interest out of his character. A solid mainstay in the IC Title picture, he really began what we would see as longer and more meaningful championship reigns.
