WWE is considering creating a new world title to solve the problem of how to get a belt off of Roman Reigns without him losing.
The report comes from Dave Meltzer (h/t Smita Singha Roy of Ringside News). In that report, he notes that there "remains a lot of talk" within WWE about creating a new title whichever brand Reigns does not wind up on. If he's exclusive to Raw, WWE will make a new title for SmackDown. If Reigns stays on SmackDown, they will make a new championship for Raw. The reason he might move to the red brand is if WWE holds another WWE Supplemental Draft.
Reigns is creating one of the most historic legacies in WWE history and has held the Universal Championship for over 850 days. Taking the title off of him won't be an easy decision and it's not something WWE wants to do simply to remove one belt and give it to someone else. The situation has to be right and it can't make Reigns look weak in the process. When he was given the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 38 in April 2022, WWE had to have known they were going to run into a situation that could be tough to get out of without creating a new belt.
Would WWE Hold A New World Title Tournament?
One of the options being tossed around is the idea of merging the WWE and Universal Championships into one and then creating a new world title. There would likely be a tournament to crown the new champion. If they did, not only would it solve the problem WWE is facing by only having one major champion covering both brands but they could really build up the eventual winner if the tournament is done right and produced well.
Absolutely ridiculous idea they need to merge both titles now and only have one title, all this talk about making yet another title to add to the two that Roman has is turning the brand to nothing and making the titles prestige worthless. I used to love wwe but not anymore, for me now aew is the company that is at the top of the table.
I think the WWE should combine both titles and have only one world heavyweight champion thatb will bring more prestige and worldwide honor to the title
Wow. That would amazing!! I want it, lol
