If it means the new title would have more prestige...
- WWE.com recently spoke with Big E. Langston and Dean Ambrose about whether the company should unify the Intercontinental and United States championships. Check out the highlights:
Langston on whether the titles should be unified: "I'd be open to it. If it strengthens the legitimacy of both titles, then I'm all for it."
Ambrose on whether the titles should be unified: "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."
Ambrose on whether a new title should be created to replace the two championships: "Instead of me lugging around both titles, yeah."
Langston on whether a new title should be created to replace the two championships: "I wouldn't say so. I think the Intercontinental Title has so much prestige that I would hate for it to go away. If anything, I think it could absorb the U.S. Title...the Intercontinental Championship should always be around in WWE. It's very historic, and I don't think we should lose that history."
Langston on what kind of match should be used to unify the titles: "That's a very good question. Maybe a Scaffold Match? We haven't done a Scaffold Match in forever. Just like 30 feet above the ring."
Ambrose on what kind of match should be used to unify the titles: "Something with a definitive ending. Maybe a Steel Cage Match, so that there would be no interference and no excuses. There would be no question marks coming out of it. He would know I was the Unified Champion, and there wouldn't be a question about it."
Ambrose on the downside of unifying the titles: "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 on the downside of unifying the titles: I can't remark on how people would feel positively or negatively, but it would definitely bring more attention to the titles.
