Looks like some additional changes are coming down the pipe, as a new report reveals the WWE wants to change up the Undisputed Tag Team titles. More on this story, below.
WWE Wants Two Sets Of Tag Team Titles
The company officially merged with the UFC this past Tuesday, and it sounds like more changes are coming on the horizon. This time, the focus is on the organization’s tag team division and championships.
The tag titles have been “unified and undisputed” since RK-Bro dropped the RAW tag championships to The Usos on the May 20th, 2022, edition of RAW in a “Winner Takes All” bout. As Jimmy and Jey were SmackDown Tag titleholders already for about a year, the RAW tag championships simply became one with the Blue brand’s belts.
With the 2023 Draft, the RAW and SmackDown brand split has been re-emphasized. However, the tag team titles are still together with the champs appearing on both shows.
According to the Better Wrestling Experience, a handle on X this is all set to change. In fact, the report reveals that the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championships will soon be split.
What the report doesn’t reveal is how the company plans to do this. Only time will tell.
There have only been three tag teams in total to hold the unified undisputed tag titles. The Usos, of course, with the first reign, but they were defeated for the championships by Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn during Night 1 of this past year’s WrestleMania 39.
The Judgment Day’s Damian Priest and Finn Balor defeated KO and Zayn at the Payback 2023 pay-per-view (PPV) this past September 2nd in a Steel City Street match. As of this writing, Finn and Damian are the current champs, so it’ll be interesting to see how the company plans to move forward with a split.
