Due in part to the current way of doing things (in WWE) where champions lose non-title matches regularly, I have recently become obsessed with the idea of "lineal championships". So this morning, I tracked the NXT Lineal Championship starting with Rollins winning the inaugural title. Not nearly as interesting as I'd hoped, as it took less than a year for that strap to merge with the WWE Lineal Championship. So whoever the lineal WWE Champion is (I think it's Roman Reigns Brock Lesnar) is also the lineal NXT Champ.
7/26/2012: Seth Rollins d. Jinder Mahal to win inaugural NXT Championship (NXT)
12/6/2012: Big E. Langston d. Seth Rollins (NXT)
5/21/2013: Alberto Del Rio d. Big E. Langston (Main Event)
5/28/2013: Big E. Langston d. Alberto Del Rio (Smackdown)
6/1/2013: Alberto Del Rio d. Big E. Langston (House Show)
7/1/2013: John Cena d. Alberto Del Rio (Raw)
*** NXT Lineal Championship unified with WWE Lineal Championship ***

Also, if this is correct, it looks like the WWE, Universal, IC and NXT lineal titles are all currently unified with Brock Lesnar. In looking into this, I learned about what Reddit has dubbed the "LOLCENAWINS" factor, which is kinda true in this case. Every linear title seems to end up with Cena at some point, which is where they all merge due to how rarely Cena loses a singles match.
Not even going to begin to track the US Title... especially since there's a non-zero chance that lineage has been stuck in Japan since the late 1970s.
