Breaking: New WWE World Title Announced on RAW, Tournament Set in Place to Crown Champion

On today’s episode of Monday Night RAW, RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley have announced that a new world title will be put in place with WWE Champion Dean Ambrose now residing on SmackDown. The title will be called the ‘WWE Universal Title’ and the winner of an eight-man tournament on tonight’s RAW will face Seth Rollins for the inaugural title at SummerSlam next month.

The eight competitors on tonight’s two Fatal Four Way matches are as followed: Sami Zayn, Sheamus, Cesaro, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, Rusev, Kevin Owens, and Finn Balor. The winner of each Fatal Four Way will compete in a one on one match in tonight’s main event to determine who face’s Rollins for the WWE Universal Title at SummerSlam.

    It’s pointless to argue, they are calling the WWE Championship the WWE World Championship now so it calls back to that title. Get used to World and Universal titles.

  • D2K

    Yep……ahhhhh…pretty much.

  • D2K

    We are not going to play semantics. It was the WCW title BELT. The fact that they tried to pass it off as something else is irrelevant. There have been many broadcasts when they talked about the “history”‘ of that particular BELT clearly referring to it’s WCW roots without outright saying WCW.

    The point is that particular BELT has been merged and split already so your point that they can’t use that particular BELT as a separate championship because it was merged into the WWE World Heavyweight title BELT is an invalid one. It’s TV by the way. They can merge and split anything they want.

    END-OF-STORY. Take the L, and move along.

    Yes even though the belt had the same look it was the World Heavyweight Title, not the WCW Title.

  • D2K

    Because doing things that make sense cause chronic pain to the McMahon family.

  • D2K

    O_o………They already merged and separated that title before. Did you forget it was the WCW title? Both Jericho and Triple H carried both titles until an actual Undisputed WWE title belt was made. Then, just a few months later they bring the big gold belt right back again specifically for RAW because the WWE title was on Smackdown.

  • Chad Boswell

    Well if you look at it from a story line perspective it was merged with the WWE Title so they decided to make a new one.

  • Jon Poyser

    what ever happened to using the wold heavyweight title you know a championship that actually means something

  • ROB-1.

    Why don’t they call the new title the Raw title and the Smackdown title Smackdown title?

  • JC Bolden

    That’s tuurible

  • The Killswitch

    I guess I’m the only one who doesn’t mind the name of the new title.

  • VRA

    Trash!

  • D2K

    O_o……………………..
