The OCW Intercontinental Championship is a professional wrestling title held exclusively in OCW. It's the second highest title within the company amongst male competitors which it is exclusive to.
This belt is one of the most sought after titles in OCW. A majority of the superstars who have held this belt have went on to hold the Undisputed Championship soon after winning.
Just like everything else in OCW the Intercontinental championship is not without controversy. Drew Stevenson was the first ever Intercontinental champion but was stripped of the title by Justin Klein. The official reason was that "Justin felt like it", however Drew maintains that backstage politics were the reason he was stripped of the title as well as a competitor named The Giant who had a falling out with OCW.
Drew wasn't the only champion to be stripped for the title, Darren Stevens was also stripped of the belt by Big Tony. The reason for this was that Darren refused to defend the title on multiple occasions, Darren believed that due to his Hulk Hoganesque influence backstage he had the ability to pick and choose who to defend the title against. The straw that broke the camel's back came when a superstar named Taiokaion challenged Darren for the title and was denied. Big Tony made an appearance and demanded that Darren have the title in Tony's office by the end of the night because he no longer champion, a decision that sent Darren into a frenzy.
Even more controversy came at OCW Living Nightmare II when Justin Klein won the title through deception and trickery. Originally Owen Stevenson and Drake Solace were set to fight for the title, but just as it looked like Owen was going to win. Justin appeared and pushed a large cross (a prop for the match) onto Owen, injuring him. Justin then went on to pin Drake and announced that he had drafted a contract which made him a late entrant in the match, making his title win legitimate.
Shawn Clarke would take the championship from Dillon Durst after Durst had successfully defending it against Justin Klein during past weeks. Due to the help of Shawn Clarke's wife Kristilin Flint he would manage to obtain his first Intercontinental Championship on OCW Mayhem.
