Intercontinental title changes hands on WWE Raw


A title change took place on this week's episode of Raw.

Bobby Lashley defeated Finn Balor to win the Intercontinental Championship. This is Lashley's second reign with the title. He won it from Dean Ambrose on the January 14 episode of Raw and then dropped it to Balor at Elimination Chamber, though Balor pinned Lio Rush in a handicap match to win the championship.

The finish of tonight's match was Rush distracting Balor as Balor was going for the Coup de Grace. Balor kicked Rush and went for a springboard move on Lashley, but Lashley gave him a spear and mid-air and pinned him to become Intercontinental Champion. Lashley and Rush celebrated together after the match.

Lashley teamed with Baron Corbin & Drew McIntyre in the main event of Fastlane on Sunday night, with them losing to The Shield (Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose). Finn Balor didn't wrestle at the pay-per-view.
