• Original Plan For WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles Revealed
The WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles are on their way to WWE programming this year.
Twitter user BeltFanDan, who has revealed information regarding WWE Title belts in the past, revealed the original plan for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles.
Below is what he posted on Twitter:
“The old female Penny Style tags were delivered early Summer like I reported. WWE did not like the final product nor the reaction to the leak.
Original plan was the Bayley/Sasha feud was to lead to them winning the women’s tags around SummerSlam. Then plans changed and reworked with Evolution in mind, then scrapped.
New designed belts were ordered and as seen, Wildcat did them as well. I was not told when to expect them, but Sasha/Bayley are still supposed to be heavily involved.
This is not the first time WWE has had new belts made only to scrap them. Several years ago, they had a new ECW belt made with a diamond plate texture main plate and chain link side plates with removable nameplates. This belt was never used because apparently CM Punk did not like it. It resides today in the best chest at the WWE warehouse.”
