The loss ended Nakamura's reign as the Intercontinental champion at just north of 200 days, which was the longest since Cody Rhodes held the belt from 2011 to 2012. Strowman has previously held the Raw Tag Team titles and challenged for the Universal title, but now can add a singles championship reign to his resume.
