Smackdown Tag Team Championship
Welcome to a unique list of how to classify the active championships WWE titles. Some of the graduations have been difficult to decide because they wanted to highlight the story of each, but also wanted to see what the company has done with them recently. The current champion does not decide the general prestige; Its history is. Importance is measured in the way the company currently sells the security of its audience; Do you have the PPV title regularly? The talents that tell us how proud they are to be champions? I have some important points before talking about titles in the Smackdown brand:
The duration of each title is the number of years / months for the first time. This does not exclude time lost due to vacancy or deactivation.
Many title protections are not equal prestige. Hardcore title was defended the 24 hours, 7 days to 24 of 7 and does not have the prestige … unless they have enjoyed the reign of Steve Blackman.
A part time championship does not diminish prestige unless they return and do not lose terribly candidate number one or someone who is not in the title of the photo. In the past, the WWE title was not defended every month … it was more like 3-4 months in a big event at Madison Square Garden.
When competing in a division brings prestige, it can have a negative effect because it feels like a title becomes a “hot potato”. The line between strong competition and hot potato falls to anyone who asks. Except again … we talk about the Hardcore Championship.
The hardest part of making a list like this? WWE is not your championship issue as much as we are. They make decisions based on what is profitable, which is not fun or prestige.
As WWE always makes every effort to stop being a sport, the prestige is difficult to determine because the champions they choose can not be gifted sporty, but have a certain look that sells. WWE prefer to have short reins because they feel that the public does not have the patience to see the same defender of years. Fans are more likely to become a face champion for a long time, while heel champions can be encouraged if they become too much fun during their long reign of respect.
As for the Smackdown Securities label … it was doomed from the beginning. Heath Slater and Rhyno were never a serious team, and when they became the first champions, they showed the lack of depth in the division. The Wyatt family who won (with Orton) was interesting, but did not last. Enough, the current champions are to reign longer … and I do not care. American Alpha should have made big belts, but WWE had no one to compete with them. The new day some things … but there is a lot to do to make these titles worthy of Smackdown live.
