Released: 11/25/2008

Your host is Todd Grisham. He mentions how almost every major superstar in the WWE has won the Intercontinental title on their way to the top. Grisham then explains the origin of the IC belt where Pat Patterson won the North American championship and the South American championship down in Rio de Janeiro (the place where all fake title wins happen!) to make up the new title. Let me just say that as far as Todds go, Pettingell > Grisham. Read the rest of this entry
