The Intercontinental Title has long been considered the “purists’ championship,” and this Sunday at Hell in a Cell, that reputation will be well-earned when champion Dolph Ziggler defends against challenger Cesaro in a traditional 2-out-of-3 Falls Match. The first Superstar to claim two falls will leave Dallas with the Intercontinental Championship.
The Swiss Superman, a former U.S. Champion and the winner of the inaugural Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania, has made no bones about the fact he considers himself the finest in-ring performer in all of WWE. He even defeated Ziggler in non-title action on the Oct. 20 edition of Raw, but fell short when the championship was on the line during a rematch on the Oct. 24 SmackDown.
This Sunday, however, the winner will have to prevail in not just one, but two falls to be considered the Intercontinental Champion, leaving little doubt as to who truly is the better competitor.
Which thoroughbred will carry on the Intercontinental Title’s illustrious legacy: the scary-strong Cesaro or unworldly athletic Ziggler? And just what type of ring action can the WWE Universe expect when two of WWE’s premier wrestlers go to war in an endurance-testing 2-out-of-3 Falls Match? Don’t miss what’s sure to be a modern-day classic when Ziggler and Cesaro clash at Hell in a Cell, which airs live this Sunday on WWE Network and pay-per-view at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
