One Champ, Two Belts

More than four months ago, Randy Orton beat John Cena to unify the WWE and World Heavyweight titles to form a WWE World Heavyweight Champion.  Now, Daniel Bryan holds that title, but still with two belts.  I believe it's time to make it one championship belt.

The newer belt
I know a new WWE Championship belt was released in January 2013.  I like the design of the new belt.  I just wonder why they updated it and then unified the two championships 11 months later.  I also wonder if they had planned that or if it was a last minute decision to create one champion.

I asked the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook friends what they thought about the two belts.  Everyone who responded said they favored one championship belt.  I think it should have been presented to the new champion on the night of TLC back in December.  When that didn't happen, I thought it would happen at the Royal Rumble.  Nope.  Then when Daniel Bryan won the title at Wrestlemania, I thought he'd get a single strap, but with the current storyline that wouldn't have made much sense.  I hope they're not dragging their feet with this because they're planning to go back to two champions, I like just one champ.  It adds value to the person.

The proper way, IMO

On a side note, and an admittedly picky one, I like that Bryan wears one of the championships around his waist usually.  I don't like it when champions sling the belt over their shoulder.  I don't ever remember this being the norm back in the day.  Orton carried both on his shoulders, I don't think he ever had one around his waist.  Again, it's nit picky on my part, but a preference for me.
