The latest hint that the era of “undisputed” is coming to an end with WWE with the company announcing a new tournament.
The Usos have held the SmackDown Tag Team Championship for over 540 days, smashing WWE’s record for the longest WWE Tag Team Title reign of all time. Jimmy and Jey Uso captured that title from Rey and Dominik Mysterio back at Money In The Bank in July 2021 and added to their legacy when they also won the Raw Tag Team Championship from Randy Orton and Matt Riddle in May 2022.
Since that latter win, The Usos have been referred to as the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions but now it looks like that particular title could be coming to an end.
On the 9th of January edition of Monday Night Raw a tag team turmoil match took place with the company putting the emphasis on the fact that the winners would receive a shot at the Raw Tag Team Championship. The Judgment Day came out on top in that contest meaning they will get a title shot at some point in the future.
Now on the 13th of January edition of SmackDown, WWE has reinforced the idea that the tag team gold will be split as Adam Pearce announced a tournament to crown new number one contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Title. The first round of that tournament will see The Banger Bros of Sheamus and Drew McIntyre take on The Viking Raiders.
With WrestleMania on the horizon, the issue of splitting undisputed titles will come into sharp focus with continued rumours that the company could split Roman Reigns’ WWE and Universal Championships.
