Seth Rollins became the new holder for the title after pinning the former champion, clean in the middle of the ring.
A picture-perfect Curb Stomp was delivered to The Miz that handed away the prestigious title to the Architect of the Shield. Going forward, he will have to feature in a huge championship match while defending it.
A fatal-4-way ladder match has been confirmed to take place at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. It will witness Seth Rollins taking on against Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, and The Miz, at the same time.
No advantage is present for the champion, as the title will be suspended high above the ring. Any man putting his hands into it and unlocking it from the suspended situation will be declared as the new winner.

The former champion, The Miz is now a Smackdown Live brand superstar. But, he is getting yet another opportunity to the championship exercising his rematch clause.
Also, Balor and Joe are getting a chance to become the title-holder, too. Considering that Seth Rollins has all the tools to become a great Intercontinental Champion, chances are high that he will overcome the odds to retain the title.
