Tag team wrestling has an important place in the industry and WWE needs to do more to elevate the division.
The tag team division in WWE’s main roster is crowded with skilled and potential stars hoping to break through as the most dominant team. Despite the fact that this division is rapidly expanding, WWE still doesn’t give this specific niche enough attention.
For instance, the current Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, Finn Bálor and Damian Priest of The Judgment Day are the focal point of this division. Even though Judgment Day is currently the most popular faction in WWE, the division still needs a bit more meat. While the Undisputed Tag Team Champions are permitted to participate on both brands, there isn’t enough focus paid to the tag teams on SmackDown.
Splitting the belts is one tactic WWE can use to draw greater interest to the tag team division. Change the name of the coveted belts back to the WWE Tag Team Championship and make the titles exclusive to the RAW brand. Release a new iteration of the World Tag Team Championship on the SmackDown side. Other teams that infrequently appear on television could benefit from additional exposure if the SmackDown brand can secure its own set of tag belts.
The Street Profits is one team that would greatly benefit from a fresh set of gold. The Street Profits have gained momentum and have been operating with a new mindset. Their new manager, Bobby Lashley, has been anticipating The Street Profits to make an impact recently on SmackDown. If the planned match were to take place and The Street Profits took home the tag titles, earning gold might be the best way to gain Lashley’s respect. At the upcoming Crown Jewel, a match of that quality may occur. It would be appropriate for The Street Profits to share that triumphant moment as Crown Jewel’s theme revolves around champions.
