And WWE should learn how to make stars look important without belts.

I don't like how the U.S. title is treated as lower than the IC Title simply because it came from WCW, so I'd rather it be laid to rest than have its lineage diluted by passing it around to low level guys.
It should be
Lower midcard belt
The IC Title should be on guys like Miz, or Wade Barrett who while not quite megastars, are presented as big deals at all times. Like I said, casual fans still think of guys like Miz and Barrett as "main eventers", so they'll make the IC belt look important. That way the next guy who DOES get a push and wins the belt, will look like a bigger deal winning it because they beat a top guy for the belt. Beating Miz or Wade Barrett for the IC Title is a much bigger rub than beating Kofi Kingston or Cody Rhodes for it.
