WWE Elimination Chamber 2014: Intercontinental U.S. title unification match planned?

WWE.com

This needed to happen a long time ago.

Some time ago, WWE began alluding to potential unifying the Intercontinental and United States championship titles on the company website. The idea, of course, is if you're going to put the WWE and world heavyweight titles together, why wouldn't you do the same for the undercard?

There was even a full blown interview with Big E. Langston, the current Intercontinental champion, and Dean Ambrose, the current U.S. champion, not to mention a poll of fans that went 64-percent in favor of unification.

Oddly enough, though, any idea of actually going through with as much wasn't ever mentioned on television. Not only that, Langston and Ambrose have been running in separate circles in two different storylines, save for an occasional run in, though even that has tapered off.

So what gives?

That's anyone's guess, but it's being reported in the latest edition of the Figure Four Weekly Newsletter (subscription required but recommended) that the match is still looking likely, and would take place at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) on Sun., Feb. 23, 2014, at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

That's just one night before the WWE Network goes live.

Sound good to you, Cagesiders?
