Dave Meltzer talked about The New Day’s move to Raw and said that now that the SmackDown Tag Team Titles have been moved to the red brand, they need to move the Raw Tag Titles.
Meltzer said, “They have not moved The Street Profits over but put it this way, it absolutely as of this morning, The Street Profits were moving.”
During Talking Smack on Saturday, Sami Zayn wondered how the title situation will be handled since the tag team belts are named after the brands. It’s not clear if WWE plans on renaming the belts. If they keep things the way they are, it would only lead to confusion. The New Day have one more match left on SmackDown next week but it’s a six-man tag, which means it’s unlikely that they will lose the titles before their official move to Raw.
Meltzer also noted that Sami Zayn is probably staying on SmackDown since The Hurt Business are staying on Raw and they don’t want the Intercontinental and United States title on the same brand.
Melzer also said, “besides AJ, I think they’re gonna send one more guy from SmackDown over [to feud with] Drew so he’ll have some new opponents.”
