As we could see in the two evenings dedicated to the 2020 Draft, WWE has exchanged a tag team title from Friday Night Smackdown to Raw and another Tag Team title from Monday Night Raw to the blue show of the Stamford-based company.
We are talking about Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston who exchanged their titles of Friday night brand to the Monday show and the Street Profits who exchanged their Monday Night Raw title with the SmackDown title. For many fans and insiders, such a move as well as a phone call, given that with the first move to Raw of the Smackdown champions you could not leave the blue brand of tag team titles orphaned, it was also quite strange, with the Smackdown champions bringing with them a belt of the color and name of the brand they belong to in another brand of a different color and name.
But apparently, the WWE has found the right stratagem, which was also the simplest one to put things right, entrusting a backstage segment together with the official Adam Pearce, the solution to the "mysterious case" of the couple's titles.
WWE trades Tag Team titles between Raw and SmackDown
If several fans were already struggling with different flights of fancy, about what WWE is said to have come up with to get things right, with the possibility of changing the look and design of the belts, (which we remember do not like several WWE insiders , first of all Bruce Prichard), not to wear blue tag team belts in the red brand and vice versa, the management of the McMahon company was instead much more practical, with a segment staged in the episode of Raw that aired in the night , which saw the champions of both rosters go to exchange the titles in their possession.
In front of Adam Pearce, in fact, Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston exchanged their belts with the Street Profits, with the former having thus become in effect the raw couple champions, while the last two have instead become the champions of couple of Smackdowns, after their move with a Draft occurred in the night, in an angle never seen before in the WWE rings, which is incredible.
In a tweet, WWE summed up this exchange: "The exchange is official: @TrueKofi & @AustinCreedWins are now your #WWERaw #TagTeamChampions, and The #StreetProfits @AngeloDawkins & @MontezFordWWE are your #SmackDown #TagTeamChampions!"
