Just don't name it anything ridiculous like Unified U.S. Intercontinental. Like Big E said, the U.S. Title should just be absorbed. Since they brought back the classic white strap, I say just keep it that way and hang it above the ring with the U.S. Title.
The winner grabs both titles but becomes only the Intercontinental Champion while the U.S. Title is retired and put in a display case at Titan.
Both titles have had a lost a lot of prestige over the years but I think with both Big E and Dean Ambrose holding them, that they've gained a little bit
of that prestige back.
To retain that prestige, there should only be one guy holding a definitive upper-midcard title. This way, it makes it much more prestigious because the number one contender will likely be the loser of the Unification match.

Thanks for the history on that. I was just now thinking "if it doesn't mean the same as World, which continents does
I like how WWE is going in the title Unification direction that I've suggested earlier in the year.
It makes so much more sense, is less cluttered of a title scene, and adds prestige to the titles because they're now a rarer commodity.
WWE, I know you're reading me (MMM).
And seeing as that's the case, how about a shout-out one of these days. Could be subtle. (Oh wait, they recently compared Eric Rowan to Michael Myers...and haven't they been calling Bray Wyatt the 'Maniacal' leader of the Wyatts?)
..and all of this after I suggested Daniel Bryan join the Wyatts before it was even a storyline.
Coincidence? I think not.
Next up, a fan holding a WF/MMM sign. Vince Russo.. eat your heart out.
