Everyone doesn't need to be a World Champion. There are legends who never won a World Title. Also, having two World Titles sends the message that being a midcarder is a "bad" thing.
John Cena is the current WWE Champion. But a guy like Cena is exactly why we DON'T need two titles. WWE managed to keep Cena in the spotlight even when he wasn't in the title picture for over a year and a half. Also, when The Rock went AWOL with the WWE Title, they effectively only had one title in the WHC, but still found something for everyone to do
Who are top guys for the WWE Title?
Alberto Del Rio
Let some of the other top guys go after the IC Title and have EPIC feuds for it. Look at Miz and Wade Barrett. Having two "names" feuding over the IC belt really made it look more important. Also these guys can be moved up to WWE Title level when needed. Make sure the IC belt is always on a guy that the fans see as a "big" name, or on someone that WWE appears to be giving a massive push. Just keep it away from the likes of Kofi Kingston, etc.
Randy Orton (goes between WWE and IC level as needed)
Antonio Cesaro (should already be on IC Title level)
Retire the U.S. Title and replace it with either the European Title or create a Television Title for the lower guys.
Revive the Light Heavyweight Championship for the smaller guys. I prefer the LHW belt over the CW title simply because WWE should be focused on their own titles rather than flaunting the WCW leftovers as a reminder of winning the Monday Night Wars.
Not everyone gets to be a world champion. But having two World Titles only enforces the idea that being a "midcarder" is a bad thing. And when you hand out World Title reigns to just about anyone, it makes the guys who haven't won a World Title yet look that much worse.
