Sami Zayn debuted a new Intercontinental Title this week on SmackDown. It is a brand new design and Shinsuke Nakamura is the first man to hold the new title. He was quite happy with how it turned out.
WWE has released video footage showing the King Of Strong Style’s reaction to his new title. He was quite blown away and marveled at the new title for a moment before saying “I’m the first one to hold it.”
It was a pretty cool moment for Nakamura and now he will have new hardware to show off at Survivor Series. Shinsuke Nakamura will also get to hold that title for even longer because he’s not putting his gold on the line at the Chicago event.
We previously covered Cody Rhodes’ reaction to WWE changing the IC Title design. He didn’t seem too hurt by WWE’s decision to change the title design he helped bring back to the company. You can check out the video below.
