During a backstage interview after SmackDown, Strowman had the following to say about his big win:
“Ever since I started this with Shinsuke, it’s been an uphill battle with basically fighting three other athletes with Sami Zayn and Cesaro being at his side throughout this whole thing.
And you know, their tactics have worked a few times to keep me from coming up with the big W and getting this Intercontinental Championship, but tonight their plan backfired in their face.
I hit Shinsuke Nakamura in the middle of the ring with the running powerslam, 1-2-3. Here I am, standing the new Intercontinental Champion.
I’m still very emotional. This is a hard thing for me to take all in, seeing as this is my first singles title that I’ve had as a WWE Superstar. I mean, this is a huge milestone for me.
For 4.5 years I’ve been chasing this opportunity and finally tonight I got my hands on the Intercontinental Championship, and I don’t plan on letting go of this thing anytime soon.
Let’s get these Monster Among [Men] nameplates on here, and let’s roll with this thing.
I’m taking challengers, who wants to get these hands?”
