WWE delaying release of new Smackdown titles.

WWE to delay launch of new Snackdown Titles

Published 6 Comments

The brand expansion draft may have shaken up the rosters, but it has left a number of Smackdown superstars with nothing to fight for.

The Tuesday night show may have the WWE World Champion on the roster in Dean Ambrose, and a solid secondary belt in the Intercontinental Championship, but the Women's Title and Tag Team Championships are both exclusive to Raw.

This means that at the current time the likes of Becky Lynch, American Alpha and Paige have nothing tangible to fight for. According to Cageside Seats the wait for the women and tag teams to be relevant will continue as at this point the WWE has no plans to introduce new belts until after Summerslam.

The company is worried that debuting more new belts will take some of the attention away from Seth Rollins wrestling Finn Balor for the new Universal Championship strap. It was noticeable that last week on Smackdown there was no mention of new titles by either Shane McMahon or Daniel Bryan.

With the Cruiserwight division also set to be a Raw exclusive it is important that these new titles debut sooner rather than later. Smackdown can use the next few weeks to build up potential feuds over the belts, perhaps mentioning them in passing in regards to being fought for at Backlash next month.

Backlash will be the first Smackdown exclusive PPV of this era and there are a number of ways the company could go to decide on title matches. A competitive tag team tournament beginning immediately after Summerslam, with new and returning teams involved, would be a fun way to give Smackdown a different feel and look to Raw.
