• Reason Behind Recent WWE Tag Team Title Rule Change

Instead of defending the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship as a single title, The Usos are now defending the RAW & SmackDown Tag Team Titles separately.

At RAW XXX, Jimmy & Jey Uso will defend the RAW Tag Team Titles against The Judgment Day’s Dominik Mysterio & Damian Priest.

According to the Wrestling Observer, this Tag Team Championship change came from Triple H:

“The idea right now on the tag team front is that there are two sets of belts. The Usos are champions, but the RAW and SmackDown belts are different.

This is a new Paul Levesque move and it does allow the Usos to lose one set of belts and keep the other. It was explained to me that the hope is it makes fans think it’s more likely somebody beats them for one set of belts.”
