Former WWE superstar Darren Young may not have had a memorable singles career, especially in his run that saw WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund as his manager, but Young’s run came close to including a run with the Intercontinental title.
Young, during an appearance on Two Man Powertrip of Wrestling Podcast, discussed his life after WWE, working with Bob Backlund and a potential run with the Intercontinental Championship during his 2016 feud with the Miz.
Apparently, Miz was all for Young beating him for the title at Battleground.
“He was actually for me beating him for the Intercontinental title at Battleground. Miz was all about saying to give the title to Darren and then I’ll take it back from him. I guess I wasn’t a favorite to someone under Vince and eventually it got kiboshed.”
The run never happened and Young eventually fizzled out in WWE.
