The white-strapped WWE Intercontinental title has been retired and a NEW design for the belt was unveiled tonight on SmackDown.
It all went down during a segment that began with Sami Zayn bringing a black bag to the ring when he made his entrance with Shinsuke Nakamura. He then said he had a gift for Shinsuke and pulled out the new belt, which has a black strap and updated look.
The white-strapped version of the belt was first introduced in 2011 by Cody Rhodes. It has since undergone slight modifications.

From one STUD to another…
