The ACW Intercontinental Championship was a professional wrestling championship created and promoted by Awesome Championship Wrestling (ACW). Along with the ACW United States Championship, it was one of ACW's secondary titles. On July 28, 2013, it was unified with the ACW Intercontinental Championship and the ACW Television Championship by Luke Smith, the final United States Champion to become the inaugural and current APEX Evolve Champion.
On the April 12, 2013 episode of ACW, co-owners Jesse Alvarez and Joshua Garza introduced the ACW Intercontinental Championship with the rest of the belts. The inaugural champion was crowned on April 28, 2013 at Southern Hell, where Mason Stone defeated Sasuke Uchiha in a Ladder Match to become the inaugural champion.
On the July 5, 2013 episode of Ignition, the United States Championship, along with the ACW United States Championship and the ACW Television Championship, was announced to be unified at Rebellion by the end of the ACW International Championship Tournament at Rebellion. During then, Stone would lose the title to James Griffin, who would advance into the Fatal 4-Way tournament finals. At Rebellion, Luke Smith not only retained his title, but also defeated ACW United States Champion Dante, ACW Intercontinental Champion James Griffin and PewDiePie in an Ultimate X Match, and thus unified the titles into what became known as the ACW International Championship, the original name for the prize until Smith announced the name change into now currently known as the APEX Evolve Championship. As a result, the ACW Intercontinental Championship was decommissioned along with the ACW United States Championship and the ACW Television Championship.
There have been only 3 different reigns. Mason Stone is the inaugural champion. The final champion is Luke Smith, who was in his first reign. He won the championship in an Ultimate X Match by defeating James Griffin, Dante and PewDiePie on July 28, 2013 at Rebellion.
