– Kofi Kingston became the new WWE Intercontinental Champion at tonight’s SmackDown tapings in Tucson, Arizona. The following comes from our spoiler coverage:

* Kofi Kingston beat Dolph Ziggler to win the WWE Intercontinental Title. After the match, Dolph attacked Kofi. Vickie Guerrero demands a restart and the match resumes. Kofi wins again.

However, Ziggler is now your new #1 contender to Edge’s World Heavyweight Title after winning a #1 contender’s match at tonight’s tapings, right after he lost the Intercontinental Title to Kofi.

Vickie Guerrero came out and put Dolph in the #1 contender’s match against Cody Rhodes, Big Show and Drew McIntyre. Ziggler won the match and the #1 contendership by pinning Cody.

No word yet if Dolph will get his shot at the Royal Rumble or not.

    Glad Ziggler finally lost the belt..Can’t see Ziggler walking into Wrestlemania the World Champ tho but i can definitely see him winning money in the bank this year if they have it

    Great to see Ziggler getting a WHC match, he probably won’t win but it’s something new and a big opportunity to prove himself. Shame he had to lose the Intercontinental title to Kingston though.

  • Kim

    Sounds great. I like Ziggler and am glad they are letting him have a title shot. I doubt he will win the belt yet but at least they are using him more.

  • Zach

    Wowz. The first time I ever read the spoilers and something decent happened. FML
