Can someone please explain to me what the old WCW title is about? Why is it used in the WWE? Is it better or worse then the WWE title?

In May 2002 as the WWE roster was so big they decided to do a brand split. Half the roster was put on Raw and half on Smackdown. The Undisputed Champion initially appeared on both shows. Brock Lesnar had defeated The Rock at Summerslam to become Undisputed Champion. In September 2002 Stephanie Mcmahon (Appointed Smackdown General Manager) contracted Brock Lesnar to Smackdown leaving Raw with no World Champion.
Eric Bischoff ( Appointed Raw General Manager) brought in The World Heavyweight Championship. This new belt was the same design as the WCW World Title but was named World Heavyweight Championship. Bischoff awarded it to Triple H who was at that time the number 1 contender for Brock Lesnar's title. Through draft changes etc... The World Heavyweight Title has ended up on Smackdown and the WWE Title on Raw. I would say the WWE Title is the more respected belt, The World Title isn't far behind though.
As affirmed by WWE, the World Heavyweight Championship is not a continuation of the WCW Championship, but rather its successor by way of the WWE Undisputed Championship, just as the WCW Championship spun off from the NWA World Heavyweight Championship.
Hope this helps.
