it's serving the purpose that IC title once did, its not the WHC anymore, that's the point the OP is making, it's stupid, merge the too or do a brand split.
No, it's not stupid. back than there wasn't no brand split so of course the IC title will be the second most prestige title. The WHC is basically a Smackdown title. Even though the brand split is dead doen't mean Smackdown isn't it's own show. So to say the titles need to be merged will hold back future stars.

Well its funny how the "smackdown title" always features on raw, where you alive 12 years ago? do you remember how fantastic things were when SD and Raw were equally huge! with just one main title and an IC title? your trying to tell me that this disaster we have atm is working better than it was back then?

To me, the bigger waste is having both the US and IC title. As people have mentioned here, the WHC is a) to feature on Smackdown, and b) for up and coming main event players. IC and US title though, neither one really is worth much these days, so to have both is just totally unnecessary....

No i'm not saying that at all. I honsetly don't see the differnce from when the Smackdown title (yes, smackdown title) didn't appear on RAW. The RAW title will still be focused on RAW and vice versa. If anything the wwe had no choice but to put Smackdoown wrestlers on RAW, the roster isn't packed like back then.

So John Cena can hold the more prestigious one, just in case we start to forget that he's the number one guy.

The World Title is basically to put some bells and whistles on for upper mid carders who without that belt would have very little interest in their feuds and makes booking those feuds easy without needing a proper story attached.

They also tour separately so one show wouldn't have a belt to close the show, so it fills a quota for that too.

WWE have actually done a great job with how they handle the world title. They've made a point for moving away from the times where you were the world champion of a show, and now the WHC has turned into the "springboard" title. No one's first world title will be the WWE title these days.

Before they made that distinction it was a really awkward float between them trying to claim the world titles were equal but then going back on it, so I'm glad the WHC has a more distinct purpose now.

One of my theories about future matches (and we're talking more than a year ahead, so take it with that in mind):

* When (not if, I fully expect "when") Sting jumps ship to compete at Wrestlemania 30, I think he'll wrestle a good match against The Rock in an Icon vs Icon/Legend vs Legend/ WWF vs WCW/Wrestlemania is War match, then he'll continue to work with the company, doing good matches, pushing the new talent, and even pushing himself.

* Then at Summerslam, he'll win the WHC and soon he'll retire the belt, unifying it with the WWE Championship. The rest of his WWE run will be used to put over new talent, much like Jericho has done over his past couple of runs.

As I said, this is just one of many theories I have as to how WWE could potentially book it. I could be wrong, and almost definitely am. But it would be an interesting angle to take, nonetheless.
