World Wrestling Entertainment is going through something that can only be described as a six-man Tag Team craze.
It's not exactly a new concept, with plenty of three-on-three matches taking place in the past - and headlining major events on occasion.
However, the recent rise of 'The Shield' and 'The Wyatt Family' have placed a greater influence on this particular type of action, with WWE's biggest superstars now regularly fighting on a more congested scale in the ring.
But the questions is, should a new title be on the line for this type of match-up? It's easy to see why the organisation would flirt with the idea, according to wrestler Seth Rollins, who recognises why the fans like this type of action so much.
“There’s so many elements involved. There are six guys, all with different styles. The way those two teams interact with each other creates a lot of combustible elements that gets the energy higher,” Seth Rollins told the official WWE website.
Another big-name, Goldust, also enjoys the six-man Tag Team action, with constant excitement for the wrestlers as well as the fans watching both on television and in the stadiums.
“It’s a different dynamic. Six-Man Tag Matches are good to have on the show, because they’re very exciting,” he said.
However, WWE should think very carefully before creating a title for this particular type of match-up. Whilst 'The Shield' and 'The Wyatt Family' have made three-on-three flavour of the month, it shouldn't automatically mean a belt to battle for.
If Vince McMahon does decide to offer a strap for this, then where else could it lead. A belt for cage matches specifically, a belt for handicap matches specifically and so on.
The problem with adding a title for this is that you'd have to continue six-man Tag Team matches moving forward. It's no guarantee that other great trios are in the pipeline, so do you just keeping throwing people together or try and create various factions.
There are just too many variables to make it a guaranteed success, which differs from the standard Tag Team titles that are currently on offer. WWE does not want to fall into the boxing trap of creating too many titles, and whilst six-man Tag is exciting, it doesn't need a championship to take it to the next level.
