Should the I.C. title be retired or redesigned?

With the 40yr celebration of the intercontenential title, is it time for a new design or should they just retire it?

Personally I would like for it to be retired, it no longer represents what it used to, times have changed. I think it should be replaced with a TV belt and defended weekly in the main event. This can open up creative and have the WWE/Universal belt only be defended on PPV but allow for the WWE/Universal champ to do other things besides wrestle each week.

Hard no from me it's been around since 1979 and replacing it won't make a difference when they only care for their Top 2.

Re: Should the I.C. title be retired or redesigned?

I don't know who has held the IC or the US title for years tbh. If someone said it was retired years ago, I wouldn't question it.

last time I know who was IC champ was when bryan won it at mania. Beyond that, no clue.

Re: Should the I.C. title be retired or redesigned?

The only redesigning treatment it would get is looking exactly like the WWE, Universal, UK and both Women's belts..

The only person to truly elevate that title and bring it back from the brink of death was The Miz, but apparently they had a boner for Rollins then too so since then it's been a paper championship that just floats around again.

Have to respectfully disagree with the retiring to replace it with another belt idea too. There are already way too many titles in WWE.

Nah keep it going and keep it alive.

IC matches tend to deliver epic matches every now and then while the main event scene is micromanaged into unparalleled dimensions.

It’s a shame what they’ve done to the IC title, it used to mean something. I think it has to much history to be retired, but they definitely need to rebuild it.

I literally do not know who is right now.

Patiently waiting for the Attitude Era to return

The IC title is the best looking title on the main roster so leave it alone othet than bringing back the black strap.

Merge the WWE and Universal title and the IC and US are the main brand championships while the world champion can appear on both shows

The only design it needs is the black strap. Otherwise it's perfect. The black strap makes it look infinitely better than the white strap, but it needs to keep the classic design. That's what a title is meant to look like.

The only thing they should redefine regarding the IC title is how it´s used. Go back to basics and let it be the workhorse title you hold for a few times before even entering the main title picture.
