WWE teases splitting uncontested tag titles on SmackDown

It’s been a rather busy episode of WWE SmackDown from the start, though WWE may have teased something big relatively early on. During the episode, Adam Pearce tries to navigate back and forth between Sheamus and Drew McIntyre, who are now a full Tag Team. The two get each other excited for a new tournament that Pearce says will determine the new #1 contenders to the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. It is specifically stated that it will be for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships, suggesting that the Raw and SmackDown titles will be split before the winner of the tournament can face The Usos for the titles.

That’s a big deal if you’ve been keeping up with Raw and SmackDown lately. Right now, The Bloodline reigns supreme over SmackDown, but their power extends beyond SmackDown as they are undisputed champions. They also have the WWE Championship and the Raw Tag Team Championships, and it doesn’t look like they’ll be losing their titles any time soon.

However that changed with this tournament like having a tournament for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships #1 contender it’s likely the Raw titles will come up on someone else sooner rather than later but in the meantime WWE kicks off the tournament with a game between Drew McIntyre and Sheamus against the Viking Raiders next week.

As for the Royal Rumble, we know some of the bigger matches on the map. The biggest is the match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship between Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens, which Zayn faced in one-on-one action tonight. The Bloodline helped him secure the win over Owens, but Owens will be looking for some payback for his match against Reigns at the Rumble.

Then there are the two Rumble matches and a Pitch Black match between Bray Wyatt and LA Knight. As for the Women’s Championships, they haven’t been added to the card yet, although that could change ahead of the premium live event.
