Trout is the regular WBA world champion, Floyd has the WBC diamond title & is the 'super' WBA champion
I know what you mean, all these damn titles get confusing as hell.

you become the WBA Super champ when you unify, and the regular title becomes available... theres still only 4 champs per division

It's a paper title. It means nothing. Though he is in a position where the Super WBA title isn't even being contested because of Mayweather's absence from the ring.
However, Trout is near the top of the division, so it doesn't really matter

Its a money grab by the alphabet sanctioning bodies. It allows them to tax fighters they werent able to before. Businesswise it makes sense for them. The WBC can holdout for the big payday with fighters like Mayweather, Canelo, and Chaves Jr. Meanwhile they also get of piece of the Trouts and Robert Guerreros of the world too. It makes sense but I still hate it.

Good question, Trout is a bum that deserves to be slandered. I mean who the hell goes to Mexico, on ginger's brothers porch to kick his a$$ & take his strap, only to come back home & cannot land a decent fight. Then finally given a chance, beats up on the sports 3rd biggest draw.
Only to have boxingscene keyboard warriors slander him. All the while a guy like ginger, who ducks his entire division & even runs away from Trout (as he's called out in Spanish) & after hogging Trout's stage while Trout's family is left outside, is called ready to face Floyd. Amazing!!
