The World Heavyweight Championship has been deemed as the second-most prestigious title in all of professional wrestling.
Although at times the World title has been the top prize in the WWE, the overall consensus seems to be that the most coveted championship in the WWE and pro wrestling as a whole is the WWE Championship.
Keeping that in mind, the World Heavyweight title is one that has been used in a number of different ways recently: to give established veterans a title run they deserve (Christian, Mark Henry, etc.), to elevate up-and-comers (Daniel Bryan), to help push popular baby faces as huge stars (Sheamus) and so on so forth.
