COMPLEX SAYS: The title that shot the Macho Man into super stardom. Savage defended the Intercontinental Championship for a year and some change until losing it to long-time rival Ricky Steamboat during Wrestlemania III. Although, the Honky Tonk Man holds the record for holding this particular belt the longest (454 days), Savage is considered to be the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time.
