New Intercontinental Champion Crowned at WWE SummerSlam

Mike Killam

wwe live event resultsDolph Ziggler defeated The Miz in the opening match at tonight’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view to become the Intercontinental Champion. This is Ziggler’s second run as Intercontinental Champion, and his sixth overall title in his WWE career. 

Follow along with Wrestlezone’s official and exclusive live coverage of tonight’s PPV for up-to-the minute results. 

KILLAM: The match was quite good, with Miz working most of the match trying to protect his face – or “money maker” – setting up a huge pop for Ziggler’s superkick. They had a huge false finish at the end with Dolph kicked out of the Skull Crushing Finale and hitting the Zig Zag for the win. A very solid opening match that should set the tone for a great night, and an interesting rematch at Night of Champion.
