The mid-card titles have been a forgotten commodity in the WWE in recent years.

That all changed at Wrestlemania on Sunday as Daniel Bryan captured the Intercontinental Championship and John Cena won the United States Championship, giving a backbone to two historical titles that have been lost in translation as of late.

When you think of the glorious Intercontinental Championship, you think of names like Mr. Perfect, Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat, Owen Hart and Chris Jericho.

We can now add Daniel Bryan's name to that list as the WWE has finally awarded the title to a legit superstar with a resume to back up being the holder of the Intercontinental Championship.

Many legends have also held the U.S. Championship in the past, including some greats such as Ric Flair, Booker T, Eddie Guerrero and Sting. Similarly to the Intercontinental Championship, the WWE now has a legit champion in John Cena, to back up the history of the storied title.

It wouldn't be surprising if the Big Show throws himself into the mix after winning the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at Wrestlemania. He could spark up a rivalry with John Cena, who won the title from Big Show at Cena's first ever Wrestlemania match.

Daniel Bryan could start a feud with former champion Bad News Barrett, or, possibly with Bray Wyatt. Even Sheamus too if he can return from his injury in time.

There are rumours that Sheamus will turn heel now he's returned. Daniel Bryan and Sheamus have had a history of good matches together and a new rivalry over the Intercontinental Title could prove to be very entertaining.

Regardless of who challenges Cena and Bryan, we know that for now at least, the mid-card championships are in good hands.
