I'm not too sure how this would work out, the WWE doesn't seem to do it a lot. After Jeff Hardy won the WWE Title he wasn't really considered a mid-carder anymore to me, I don't know how you would write him back to mid-card level champion. So basically my question is do you think it would work well?
It can definitely work to elevate the midcard title. A short IC Title reign from a main eventer leading to a World/WWE Title reign feels weak though. The wrestler basically wanted to keep busy 'till his next World Title shot. I think giving Orton the IC Title for like 6 to 12 months would really give credibility to that title because it means Orton cares about the belt.
