After an epic battle between Intercontinental Champion Bad News Barrett and US Champion Sheamus these championships should be unify. After all, the Intercontinental championship was a ladder to achieve success in the future. Legends like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, Stone Cold Steve Austin and others started winning the Intercontinental Championship and then they chased the WWE Championship. In this article I will talk about why does the Intercontinental and US Championships should be unified.
Sheamus is the US Champion and Bad News Barrett is the Intercontinental Champion. The US Championship doesn’t have any importance right now. The Intercontinental Championship should start to take importance right now. The perfect way to do this is to eliminate the US Championship. After all is good that Sheamus have a championship but he doesn’t need one. He was a World Champion. He is a good wrestler and he is like an Irish John Cena so the WWE is protecting him right now. Bad News Barrett was a jobber a long time and now he is starting to gain fans and momentum. The best way to push Bad News Barrett to the stardom is to book him in Summerslam against Sheamus for the unification of the titles. It will be a match that could steal the show. If Bad News Barrett beats Sheamus and become the Unify Intercontinental Champion then this will open doors for future World Champions. Finally the Intercontinental Championship would not be a joke. How is possible that wrestlers like Albert, Test and Billy Gunn won the title in the past? Even Santino won the title in a live show against Umaga. This is a total disrespect for the Intercontinental Champion and for the legends that held the title in the past. If the title continues to be disrespected then both titles should go. Although I have faith in the WWE. They will continue to push Bad News Barrett and he will elevate both his career and the title.
In conclusion, let’s hope that the WWE will make the right decision and unify the titles. Also let’s hope that Bad News Barrett continue as the Intercontinental Championship because this will elevate the title and his career. Then future stars will use the Intercontinental Championship as a ladder to later compete for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. For example new stars like Bo Dallas could use the Intercontinental Championship as a trampoline. Then win the Money in the Bank suitcase and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. To win the Intercontinental Championship should be a requisite to later become the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Hopefully this will start again soon.
