    Following the appointment of Eric Bischoff and Stephanie McMahon as General Managers of the Raw and SmackDown brands respectively, Stephanie McMahon contracted then-WWE Undisputed Champion Brock Lesnar to the SmackDown brand, leaving the Raw brand without a world title.On September 2, after disputing the brand designation of the Undisputed title, Eric Bischoff announced the creation of the World Heavyweight Championship, spun off from the Undisputed title.

    basically the wwe wanted to give more wrestlers the opportunity to becomd champion, so they split the belts up and placed one on each brand

    in Vince's mind, itz always been secondary because it was the NWA/WCW belt, not the WWE belt. They only brought it back just to say Triple H was champ again

    This. It's also the same reason why the WCW/ECW wrestler had to start from the bottom and work there way up, even if they were considered to be great. To Vince WWE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> everywhere else.

    the combination of 2 major championships is what makes it undisputed
    there were 2 wwe champions so after combining the belts, you have an undisputed wwe champion

    Smackdown is secondary because it comes on Fridays. People are less likely to watch TV on Friday nights than Monday.

    It's not always secondary. The WHC was the WrestleMania headliner for 20, 21 and 24.



    I think is has more to do with Cena always being on Raw and having the customized belt for all those years while Batista held the WHC on Smackdown. The WHC was on Raw for the first 3 years of it's existence. It went back to Raw from mid '08 when Punk won it well into '09. Not sure when it went back tho.
