WWE is truly an ever-changing product and there are a lot of things they are doing away with, especially following Vince McMahon’s departure. This includes changing title designs and now the reason for that has been revealed.

For the past couple of weeks, WWE shook things up by introducing brand new titles for the team division on Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown, which added a lot of intrigue to the product.

According to a report by Fightful Select, the recent redesign and rebranding of WWE championship titles were intended to provide the company with greater flexibility. The key change was removing the “Raw” or “SmackDown” specific naming and color schemes from the women’s and tag team titles, allowing for a more streamlined approach.

This move aims to prevent awkward situations, such as title trades when champions are transferred to the opposite brands from their championships. In previous cases, when this occurred, it led to confusing scenarios where champions would have to swap titles simply because they were now on different brands.


Despite these alterations, it was also noted that WWE champions remain committed to their respective brands, even with the flexible designations. This structure allows for easier transitions between brands without causing confusion regarding which title belongs where.

‘We did learn that the change of title designs and branding was done specifically to give the company a lot more flexibility than in the past. Women’s and tag team titles are no longer referred to as “Raw” or “Smackdown” titles or given brand specific color schemes, which we’re told in part was to avoid awkward title trades like we’ve seen in the past when champions end up on the opposite brands than their championships. Then it was reiterated that the champions were locked into the brands they’re on anyway.”

We will have to wait and see how The Awesome Truth and A-Town Down Under will fare as the respective tag team champions on Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown, as they will remain on their own brands during the WWE Draft.
