Braun Strowman wins the Intercontinental championship

After chasing it for a few weeks, you might think it a surprise that Braun Strowman’s first shot at the Intercontinental championship came as a late announcement on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown. Especially because the man had never won a singles title in WWE.

Surprise!

Despite the fact that Shinsuke Nakamura had help from both Sami Zayn and Cesaro, Strowman turned that help against Nakamura by putting him into an exposed turnbuckle and pinning him in the center of the ring to become the new Intercontinental champion.

How about that?
