Last week Vince McMahon confirmed that WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles are set to be introduced soon, and it looks like WWE could be making some changes to current title belts as well.
Twitter user @BeltFanDan is reporting that he was told the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Titles will be changed to have removable side plates, and the same idea was pitched for the US Title as well.
BeltFanDan noted that original plans called for Bayley and Sasha to win the Women’s Tag Titles at SummerSlam, but WWE wasn’t happy with the way the belts looked so they were scrapped.
A photo of a possible design for the new Women’s Tag Team Titles was also shared when he posted the following:
“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 belt chest at WWE warehouse.
I was also told that both RAW and SmackDown tag belts will be changed to have removable team side plates which I also reported over a year ago when the idea was brought up. This was also proposed for the United States belt.”
