New Paperback: KB’s Updated History of the Intercontinental Title

As was once said, the marquee says wrestling. While that’s always true, some wrestlers are more about the in-ring product than the others. For those wrestlers and fans of that style, the Intercontinental Title is one of the greatest gifts anyone could have ever asked for. It’s long been called the workers title as it has traditionally been more about the in-ring quality than the drama that follows the World Title. The championship has been around nearly forty years now and many of the best performers over that time have held the title.

Back in March 2016, I released the History of the Intercontinental Title e-book, but a lot of time and title changes have happened since then. Therefore, I’ve updated the book with seventeen new matches (two from the old days due to some updates on the WWE Network), polished things up and updated everything through the end of August 2017. The updated book is now available in paperback and still as an e-book.

The book contains over 420 Intercontinental Title matches dating from October 1979 thru August 2017 with every filmed title change and of course several title defenses ranging from pay per views to television to house shows to fan cam recordings you’ve probably never seen before. Each match is broken down with context, play by play and analysis.

It’s available from Amazon in full paperback form, runs 439 pages and is priced at $10.99. The book is available worldwide (only in English) from any country’s Amazon page. Here are the links for the US and UK versions:

New E-Book: History of the Intercontinental Title

Think of a great wrestler over the last forty years and odds are they’ve been the Intercontinental Champion. Since 1979, the Title has brought us a long list of great matches, stories and champions, many of whom have risen to the top of the wrestling world on the strength of their time as Intercontinental Champion. It’s been called the workrate title and is often associated with the best wrestling that you can find anywhere in the world. Whether it’s a mat classic or a bloody fight, more great matches have been fought over the Intercontinental Title than almost any championship in the history of wrestling. Any way you look at it, there’s a reason why this title is thought of so highly among wrestling fans.

In this new book, I’ll be taking a look over 400 Intercontinental Title matches from pay per views, television and house shows with every title change (at least all of them filmed) included, along with a long list of successful title defenses. I’ll be including play by play and analysis of each match and taking a look at how much the title has changed as well as stayed the same over the years.

The books is my longest ever at over 500 pages on a Kindle and only costs $3.99, or the equivalent in other currencies. If you don’t have a Kindle or e-book reader, there are several FREE apps you can use to read it on pretty much any electronic device. You can find those from Amazon here.
