WWE's Shinsuke Nakamura Retains Intercontinental Championship at Clash of Champions

Shinsuke Nakamura has built some momentum in recent weeks thanks to a new viciousness and Sami Zayn bringing the noise as his mouthpiece. Together they've put the Intercontinental Championship back in the spotlight, but The Miz hasn't been impressed and wants to take back the title he says he brought prestige too during his last run with the belt. The two clashed tonight in the ring, and now Nakamura has retained his Intercontinental Championship.

Shinsuke and Zayn have played the odds game against Miz at every corner in the weeks leading up to the match, and tonight was no different, as Zayn definitely played a part in the result, distracting the referee at one point when Miz had Nakamura pinned.

Now we'll have to wait and see if there's a rematch between these two superstars, as we're sure The Miz won't take this loss lying down.
