Ricochet is the new WWE Intercontinental Champion.

Ricochet defeated Sami Zayn on this week’s episode of Smackdown after Johnny Knoxville distracted Zayn. Ricochet hit a Frankensteiner out of the distraction before making the cover for the win. This is Ricochet’s first Intercontinental Championship win. He is a former WWE United States Champion and NXT North American Champion.

After the match, Zayn threw a fit backstage and said he’d be at WrestleMania in Dallas. Unconfirmed reports indicate that Zayn is slated to face Knoxville in a match at WrestleMania to put a bow on their feud.
