WWE To Launch New Titles After WrestleMania 34

Apparently, there aren't already enough.

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, WWE are planning to introduce a new set of championship belts following WrestleMania 34.

The New Orleans show will see a new king of the cruiserweights crowned, and reports suggest the company are keen to give the division further silverware with the inception of 205 Tag Team Titles. WCW very briefly experimented with a similar set of belts whilst on their death bed; the company's Cruiserwight Tag Team Championships lasted just eight days before WWE purchased the group. The longest reigning holders were the esteemed pairing of Kid Romeo & Skipper - for, yes, just eight days.

A pair of parallel purple straps would mark the fourth set of tag team titles within the company. At present, Raw, SmackDown, and NXT all boast top prizes for their top tandems.

205 Live has been utterly ravaged with departures, suspensions, and Geordies on gardening leave, to the point that its roster contains just 15 active members. It's difficult to see how the Tuesday night tumblers will manage to maintain the current title and a doubles division with such a lack of depth. The plans hint at WWE looking to greatly expand the show into something much more substantive than at present, presumably a continuation of its recent resurgence under the stewardship of Triple H.

At the moment, it's not known precisely when the company are expected to unveil the new belts, as they are said to still be in the process of finalising their design.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, despairing over Middlesbrough FC, and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
