It is being reported that WWE is considering merging the US and IC Titles once again. With the company recently bringing back the classic IC title design and considering that the IC Title has been a WWE staple since 1979, WWE will likely drop the US title after a unification match.
At this time, there are no plans to unify the WWE and World Titles. The reason is that WWE likes having both belts defended on the separate RAW and SmackDown live events.
