WWE re-brands the Women’s and Tag Team championships

This is hardly surprising news, and it’s something that’s probably been expected since WWE split Raw and SmackDown into separate brands with distinct rosters - and definitely since Shane McMahon & Daniel Bryan announced the creation of Women’s and Tag Team championships specific to the blue brand.

It also confirms what some sharp-eared WWE Universe noticed on the Sept. 5 Raw, when announcers referred to Charlotte as the Raw Women’s champ on a couple occassions.

Per, that’s now the name of the strap the Nature Girl carries.

The New Day hold the Raw Tag Team Championship.

Though it’s not officially spelled out on the company website, this presumably means the belts which will be awarded for the first time on Sunday, Sept. 11 at Backlash will be the SmackDown Women’s and SmackDown Tag Team titles.
