A major shakeup in the Raw & SmackDown tag divisions.

Last night's WWE Raw saw The New Day and Street Profits swap Tag Team Championship belts following confirmation that Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford had been sent to SmackDown as part of the 2020 Draft.

In a simple backstage segment involving authority figure Adam Pearce, the Street Profits became SmackDown Tag Team Champions for the first time, handing their Raw belts over to Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston in the process, meaning each team now had a set of straps to match their respective new homes.

The New Day only became SmackDown Tag Team Champions on last Friday's show, defeating Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura to capture the belts for the sixth time, before Stephanie McMahon announced Woods and Kingston had been drafted to Raw. Ford and Dawkins were then sent to SmackDown as the draft concluded last night.

Woods and Kingston have already successfully defended their new red titles, besting Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode before the heels were sent to SD later in the night.

Street Profits had been Raw Tag Team Champions for 224 days prior to the handover. It had previously been announced that all champions would keep their belts if sent to another brand, but while WWE has technically changed its mind on this, the move makes sense for the named tag straps.
