I'm not a Wlad fan but yes he is certainly the lineal champion. He holds the Ring belt because he beat the top contender.

Lewis retired and vacated the lineal title. Vitali picked it up after beating top contender. Vitali retired thus vacating the lineal title and Wlad picked it up in 2009 with the win over Ruslan Chagaev.
It's simple to follow the heavyweight lineage.
