WWE’s website has a new article up asking if the United States Title and the Intercontinental Title should be unified. It features quotes from current champions Dean Ambrose and Big E Langston. Here are some highlights:
WWE.COM: Let’s get right to it: Do you think the United States Title and the Intercontinental Title should be unified?
BIG E LANGSTON: I’d be open to it. If it strengthens the legitimacy of both titles, then I’m all for it.
DEAN AMBROSE: It’d be a good thing as long as they made one good looking championship for me to haul around, because I’d definitely be the one holding it.
WWE.COM: Is there a downside to unifying the titles?
AMBROSE: On the one hand, you’d have fewer titles for people to go for. On the other, it would be a prize that people would definitely want to come after. Nobody wants to come after my United States Title, because everyone has fallen so short and felt the hammer come down from The Shield afterward. It’s a very dangerous proposition to come after my title, so maybe having the championships unified would offer a little more prize money for people to want to go after.
LANGSTON: I can’t remark on how people would feel positively or negatively, but it would definitely bring more attention to the titles.
WWE.COM: It sounds like you’re both prepared for an eventual champion vs. champion showdown.
LANGSTON: I’d welcome the challenge.
AMBROSE: I feel that what I’ve given and sacrificed for the U.S. Title, I’d be willing to put that on the line as a pride thing. It’s just as good as the Intercontinental Title. That’s something I’d be willing to prove.
