He kind of needs to be a fan. There are a lot of titles in WWE and that means there are a lot of champions. It doesn’t help when some of these titles have multiple people holding them each, as it means there are a lot of belts to go around the company. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do with all of them, and in one such case, the most important person in the company doesn’t like a certain title.
According to Sportskeeda.com, Vince McMahon never wanted to have the Women’s Tag Team Titles introduced to the company. The titles, which were announced last December by McMahon in a backstage segment with first champions being crowned in February at Elimination Chamber, were created as McMahon was under pressure to produce them. The titles had no plans and still may not to this day. The second champions, the IIconics, rarely defended the titles over their four month reign.
It was quite the announcement though. Check out McMahon promising the titles:
Opinion: This is far from surprising as the titles have felt like complete afterthoughts since their inception. Bayley and Sasha Banks talked about defending them on every show but the IIconics were lucky to defend them once every six weeks. There is little need to have them around and WWE doesn’t seem too thrilled with them either. This is quite the problem for the titles, though it’s also kind of hard to get rid of them.
Can the titles be saved? What should WWE do with them? Let us know in the comments below.
