It's an awesome thing(IMO) that they've ended brand-exclusive PPVs beginning with Backlash, and this has thus signalled that it's only a matter of time before they do away with the brand split altogether, may be 2-4 yrs, may be even by WM35, who knows. But what's even more foreseeable is the unification of the tag titles. Now a lot of arguments will be made as to why "the brand split is a good thing, we need two tag titles, two world titles, two women's titles" etc. etc. Right now, I'm not going to argue about the WORLD titles, or whether the brand split SHOULD end, and so on, but just focus on the tag titles. Just to cover a little on the "why the brand split is good, because it gives people something to do and creates stars" argument though.. 1)With two world titles, the scene(particularly owing to Lesnar's part-time status)has never been so dismal and lacklustre on BOTH raw and smackdown. Instead of 4-5 hungry dogs aiming for the richest prize- say AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, and Braun Strowman..we've had all sorts of anomalies masquerading as world title changes/reigns. 2)How big of a star is Jinder Mahal now? Whatever they did with him by calling his wins over Orton as "WWE champion" could've and should've been done with the US title. 3)How better off is Bray Wyatt owing to the brand split and being a former champion? That's right, he's WORSE OFF, than he was between 2013-2016. 4)Although fans love Shinsuke's royal rumble victory, my feeling is that he's nowhere near as OVER, or as deserving, or organic as Chris Benoit and Daniel Bryan's coronations, or even Eddie Guerrero's, two of whom weren't even Royal Rumble winners. Why? Because Shinsuke, despite the "brand split makes new stars" era, was booked like trash to begin with, with protracted feuds with Ziggler, and Jinder wherein he ended up looking like a chump, and some random multi-man matches and feuds alongside Orton. Instead of booking him strong and consistent(exactly like Braun Strowman has been on Raw), they just gave him a RR win(not that I'm AGAINST it or anti-Nakamura) and lo and behold- DREAM MATCH. 5)The biggest issue- protracted feuds and repetition. I'm aware this has been done to DEATH here in these threads. The newest evidence of how brand split(two tag titles) is utterly boring lies in the announcement that the Usos will be defending their titles against, the NEW DAY. At this point they're but "OLD DAY". Despite the fact that all PPVs from Backlash will feature both Raw and SDL, they're not utilizing the elements on the roster for FRESH matchups? Seriously? Elsewhere on Raw, Seth Rollins has finally arisen out of the ashes of the dreadful 6-8 month feud with The Bar. And the Bar's newest challengers? Not the Club, NOT the revival, but Apollo and Titus O'Neil. If you consider all of the above, and take into account JUST the tag team title scene on both Raw and SDL throughout this year(April2017-present):- 1)The only remarkable and memorable feud on SDL was Usos vs New Day(which was already a re-enactment of their previous feuds to begin with), and throw in a few good matches with Benjamin and Gable in the mix. Inference:-Breezango, Ascension, Rusev Day and other teams never mattered and didn't do a thing of note. 2)Raw had the Bar vs Hardys, then Rollins/Ambrose and Rollins/Jordan but that's about it. The Club, The Revival(who've been made to look like Chumps, so far, besides trading victory with The Club) aren't even in the conversation when it comes to the titles. And STILL, in all likelihood, it's Titus Worldwide who'll be challenging the Bar at Elimination Chamber. All of this serves to prove how owing to the brand split, or at least two sets of tag titles, all we get is the same matches and feuds over and over and over. It's basically 500 ml milk diluted with 500 ml water served in a fancy jar or packaging, and lo and behold. So how long before they merge or unify the tag titles? (and I'm NOT saying they should end the brand split, though that's going to happen sooner or later anyway).
