WWE tease Women’s Tag Titles for Smackdown Live

Paige

Paige’s new role as Smackdown Live’s general manager has given the WWE Universe some hope that the B show can rise in quality. With a new storyline head at the helm of the show, fans and critics alike believe we’ll see some big changes coming to the Blue Brand relatively soon.

In fact, WWE themselves put out a list of five things that they’d like to see the Anti-Diva accomplish in her new position. Among the list are bringing back Talking Smack, a segment that many believed help flesh out the characters on Smackdown, and making the United States Championship something that should be defended every week.

However, number one on the list is to make a women’s tag team division.

With so many hurdles having already been crossed in the Women’s Evolution, it’s a natural inclination to begin to wonder what is next. In her new position as General Manager, Paige could be the facilitator for an entire new wrinkle in the makeup of the SmackDown Women’s division by introducing Women’s Tag Team Titles. On SmackDown LIVE, there are natural duos such as Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch, The IIconics and Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville. Think about it: Those pairings are not currently together because of any great prize, but simply because of personal relationships. If titles were thrown into the mix, the competitive landscape would immediately intensify due to how much it would mean to the teams involved.

The addition of tag titles has been rumored for a while in the WWE. Both the Cruiserweights and the Women’s division, supposedly, are working towards adding tag titles. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, however. But with the addition of The IIconics and the Bellas wanting to possibly make a comeback, now might be the best time to bring the idea to fruition.

    Correct

    The heavyweight and womens titles were originally split over both as well, until if I remember correctly, Brock Lesnar refused to defend the title on Raw (storyline purpose). I think this is what triggered SD creating a tag title as well.

  • Sparti Love

    During the original Brand Split, the tag titles were defended on both shows. This needs to happen. It would be silly if the tag titles only existed on SD

    I think what you say is perfect idea. You have a network based show that is comprised of both rosters female wrestlers where they can challenge each other for the tag titles regardless of which brand they are on, then they can still have matches on Raw or SD against just people from their own brand. Gives the title and division a little more life.
    You don’t have to have the likes of Bayley or Sasha show up on SD, but they could certainly challenge Becky and Naomi for instance on the network, and then whoever wins goes back to their own show and challenges someone on their brand.

    Would give the title a lot more gravitas.

    Makes sense. After all, if there’s one person on the roster who knows about tag teams, it’s Paige.

  • MindTricked

    Thing is, every week, we’re getting tag-team matches featuring the women, with very little in the way of story or reasoning EXCEPT to get them on TV. The women could use a tag title, and it could be split between brands. It would help get some of the women back into the spotlight.

    They really do need their own show at this point. The women’s roster is too deep for just one or two matches per show, and there’s next to NO storylines that don’t directly involve their titles (Sasha/Bayley not withstanding).

    I just dont think there’s enough talent in the main roster my make a deep tag division. But I guess there not very many tag teams on the men’s side either.
