Shinsuke Nakamura wins the Intercontinental title on Smackdown

A new Intercontinental champion was crowned last night on Smackdown as Shinsuke Nakamura beat Apollo Crews to start his second reign with the title.

Nakamura captured the title clean with a perfectly executed Kinshasa on Crews, covering him for the three-count much to the enjoyment of the crowd.

During the match, both Rick Boogs and Commander Azeez were sent to the back by the referee for trying to interfere. Boogs started playing his guitar on the apron when Apollo was going on the top rope and the ref ejected him and while this was going on, Azeez tried to sneak from behind to attack Nakamura but the referee caught him and sent him packing too for a big pop from the crowd.

Crews had been Intercontinental champion since WrestleMania 37 when he defeated Big E in a Nigerian drum fight. Prior to this win, Nakamura was the IC champion for nearly six months starting in July of 2019.
