Miz.. Then Ziggler.. Then.. Kevin Owens & Dean Ambrose all had good reigns and bouts for the title with several people and have held it a majority of the time in the last 3 to even 4 years. Also, Luke Harper was absolutely great with the IC title and was very entertaining.
Before Miz there was, in opposite order and if my memory serves me correctly:
Reigns, Miz, Ambrose, Miz, Ziggler, Miz, Ryder, Owens, Ambrose, Owens, Ryback, Bryan, Barrett, Ziggler, Harper, Ziggler, Miz, Ziggler, Miz, Barrett, Big E, Axel, Barrett, Miz, Barrett, Kofi, Miz, Christian, Rhodes, Big Show, Rhodes, Ezekiel.
There's no reason to go further back, but given that I remember very well the IC title with Rhodes and after Owens first won it, I'd day that the IC title meant something during the time Rhodes had it and after Owens won it.
After Owens it went to Ambrose, Ryder, Miz, Ziggler and Reigns and it became damn memorable and enjoyable. So, yeah, I'd say it has been pretty awesome ever since 2015.
