The WWE are moving ever closer to the beginning of the Brand Split era, and it looks like the company is starting to usher in changes for what will be a defining moment in the company.

Only yesterday we noted how a subtle change during the latest edition of Monday Night RAW - introducing Dean Ambrose as the 'WWE Champion' rather than 'World Heavyweight Champion' -hinted at the WWE reverting back to two world titles.

Now, a definitive change on the WWE's official website appears to have all but confirmed the move.

As reported by PW Insider, and initially brought to people's attention by the @WWEColt Twitter account, the WWE's official site now has a page dedicated to the 'WWE Championship' where the 'World Heavyweight Championship' page used to be.

Meanwhile, the link to the 'World Heavyweight Championship' page is fronted by an image of the old belt of the same name that was fought for between 2002-2013.

Considering only nine days ago at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view the WWE were heralding Dean Ambrose's arrival as the new 'World Heavyweight Champion', the organisation has wasted little time making changes that suggest exciting times ahead.

Indeed, the official renaming of what is currently the only main title belt suggests RAW and SmackDown will be getting separate main titles when the brand split comes into force next month.

Such news is likely to receive a positive reaction, both from WWE fans and those wrestlers preparing to discover their fate in the upcoming WWE Draft.

With two titles to fight for rather than just one, it offers those Superstars making up the mid-card at present a lot more opportunity to put themselves in the title picture moving forward.

Only time will tell how long Ambrose can keep hold of the newly renamed 'World Championship', but you know there will be plenty of talent looking to take the belt off him as soon as possible.
