WWE Reportedly Not Currently Planning to Unify Their Tag Team Championships
WWE reportedly is currently not planning to unify their RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Championships, according to the Wrestling Observer Radio.
Dave Meltzer reported that his sources stated that while WWE keeps teasing a potential unification of their RAW and SmackDown tag team titles, WWE officials currently do not have any plans to do so for the end goal of the on-going RK-Bro vs. The Usos feud.
“So this is what I was told on this. They are going to do the match [RK-Bro vs. The Usos], but as of right now — and this can change — they are not planning on actually unifying the titles but they are planning on doing the match. So I don’t know if that means another run-in DQ. Obviously they can always change their mind, but they are right now planning on doing the match. And I presume it’s going to be the next pay-per-view. That, I don’t know for sure.”
WWE originally announced that RK-Bro and The Usos would be defending their RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Championships in a unification match at this past Sunday’s WrestleMania Backlash 2022. That match was quickly changed to just a regular Six-Man Tag Team match of RK-Bro & Drew McIntrye vs. The Bloodline instead.
