Former WWE Superstar Darren Young Reveals Nixed Intercontinental Title Win

Published

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.

Reigns reflected on his big win at SummerSlam.

Triple H commented on the recent signing of former UFC star Matt Riddle, who was shown in the crowd during NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV on Saturday night. WWE had been previously hesitant to sign Riddle due to his history related to marijuana use.

“Matt brings a lot to the table” Triple H said, according to Newsweek.

“He’s an amazing athlete, smart in the way he’s adapted and what he did in his MMA career,” Levesque told media in a post-show press conference. “He’s learned a lot on his own in a very brief period of time to get to where he is. I’ve watched him for awhile, his ups and downs, and you know there just comes a time when somebody gets good enough.”

Triple H believes that adding him to WWE, and the NXT roster, will be the next step in his development.

“I think he’s ready to get brought in and be taken the rest of the way. I also think he’s matured as a person.” Triple H continued.

“I think he’s realized where he wants to get in this business as opposed to just being in the business. We think it’s the right time, but only time will tell. He’s a very talented guy and the sky’s the limit. We’ll see what he can do. I feel sometimes people say ‘you bring them in and just go with it.’ It’s not that simple. Not everybody makes it, not everything works. There’s a lot of factors. I believe in him and I believe he has a lot of potential.”
