The hot rumor this week is that WWE will be unifying the United States and Intercontinental belts at the Elimination Chamber pay per view. Dean Ambrose, who has not done much with the title, will most likely work a match with Big E Langston at the show.
Despite the tease on Monday Night Raw this week, the Wyatt Family and the Shield are not expected to feud any time soon. Some within WWE are wanting to save that program for Wrestlemania 30.
The last time that the United States Heavyweight Championship was defended was back in October, when Dean Ambrose successfully defended the title against Big E Langston at Hell in a Cell 2013 and on Monday Night Raw the following night.
Since CM Punk has been pulled from all of the upcoming live events, WWE needed a new main event match, as he was originally planned to headline the shows with Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Now, Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan have been moved into the top spot.
With CM Punk abruptly leaving the company, WWE needed someone to replace him at the upcoming live events that he was scheduled for. Sheamus has been chosen as the replacement, and he will be working handicap matches against Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
