One more for the wrestling historian. The Revival won the Raw Tag Team Titles a little over a month ago and haven’t exactly done much with them. The idea that the Revival is going to bring some sweeping change to the division has long since been forgotten as they’re barely ever able to work the style of match that made them such successes in the first place. However, they did do one thing right.
On Saturday night in Amherst, Massachusetts, the Revival wore the classic design for the Tag Team Titles in a title defense. These belts were used from 1985-2002 and were replaced around the time that the company switched over from WWF to WWE. There is no indication that the classic designs will be made permanent, though such a move was made when Cody Rhodes reintroduced the classic Intercontinental Title.
You might remember these classic title moments. Check out some of the greatest Tag Team Title wins in the belts’ history:
Opinion: I’d be all for these titles being brought back and it certainly would fit the Revival’s mindset. They’re some of the most classic designs in the company and any old school fan will instantly recognize them. They certainly look better than silver titles, which never worked for wrestling, especially when you have wrestlers talking about going for gold when competing for them. Hopefully we see these again.
Do you like the old designs? Should they be brought back permanently? Let us know in the comments below.
