Recent developments have emerged regarding the Smackdown Tag Team Titles in the WWE.

During the latest episode of WWE Raw, R-Truth and The Miz were bestowed with brand-new tag team championships, thus becoming the World Tag Team Champions. Sources indicate via Fightful Select that a similar update is on the horizon for Austin Theory and Grayson Waller, with plans underway for them to receive a revamped design for their titles.

Previously, there were discussions about renaming the titles from Smackdown Tag Team Titles to WWE Tag Team Titles, although this remains speculative. This potential alteration aims to streamline matters, particularly during the draft, and mitigate any complications associated with title exchanges.

The lineage of the Smackdown Tag Team Titles traces back to the reinstatement of the brand split in 2016. Conversely, the titles featured on WWE Raw have roots dating back to 2002, serving as the primary titles for the Smackdown brand at that time. Notably, the original lineage of the WWF Tag Titles, established in 1971, concluded in 2010.


As WWE continues to evolve and innovate, these developments signal a renewed focus on tag team competition and the ongoing legacy of championship lineage. Stay tuned to Ringside News for further updates on the trajectory of tag team wrestling within the WWE universe.
