Unfortunately, the time of lengthy title reigns is over as wrestling companies try to keep every type of fan happy by moving titles from one wrestler to another while they're hot, then getting scared that that person will go off the boil and take titles away before it happens. With Cena though, he's the exception, they're confident enough that he'll continue to draw to keep him out of the title picture.....at least until he challenges The Rock for it at WM29.
And what's the point of giving him a US or IC title really? What purpose would that serve? He doesn't need it. Maybe the tag titles, if creative get bored.
