Why Women’s Tag Titles Wouldn’t Work in WWE, IMPACT Wrestler Leaves Promotion and More! – WrestleCorp News

WWE Women’s Tag Titles? – WWE Hall of Famer Lita has recently come out and claimed she’s heard rumors of a WWE Women’s Tag Team Division. Here’s what she said;

There has been talks of tag titles for the Women’s Division and I think that I love that they first introduced the MITB briefcase, that’s been a long time coming and that adds an element of surprise within the title picture. I would love to see these rumored tag titles appear sooner than later, but for that to happen, I hope they bring up these women that are already at NXT or some women they’ve seen on the Mae Young Classic and expand the roster.

Opinion: I love the idea of a women’s tag team division. I hope IMPACT brings back the Knockout Tag Team titles eventually. However, I’m not supporting this move for the WWE. Why? Well, they don’t have enough time as is to handle a men’s tag team division on two shows, let alone have the depth for it. They have 3 if not 4-to-1 men to women on the roster, so you’re not as deep. Plus, when will you have the time to showcase this division on SmackDown? The only way it’d work is if you went back to the original brand extension, with Cruiserweights on SmackDown and Women on RAW. A combined women’s roster on one brand would be more than possible to support the women’s championship and women’s tag team championship, but each show really only has like, six women per roster. Even with NXT call ups, that’s maybe 10? That’s not enough to support two sets of titles.

IMPACT Talent Gone – We know that Robbie E and Low Ki were already gone from IMPACT Wrestling, for different reasons. Robbie was let go, and Low Ki opted not to extend his deal. Another wrestler who’s deal was coming up was Eddie Kingston. The promotion already had comments about Kingston’s future, indicating they didn’t know what he was going to be doing going forward, and it appears as though Kingston’s deal was not renewed He tweeted out today that he was no longer with IMPACT Wrestling. He’s now taking bookings through his email, EddieKingston74@gmail.com

Opinion: I love Eddie Kingston. I think he’s a true star, but the new regime didn’t seem to agree. Kingston was the first Chikara Grand Champion for a reason, and to see how he was used in IMPACT, through three (maybe even four) regimes is rough. Here’s hoping he lands on his feet.

Where is AJ Styles? – Dave Meltzer of the Observer is claiming that AJ Styles isn’t being used on SmackDown Live in a wrestling role, due to the WWE using him as a stop gap in the dark matches to keep people from leaving 205Live. While he’s an amazing talent, and a reason that would keep me around, the fact he’s not getting a lot of action on SmackDown Live is part of the reason the ratings are where they are.

SmackDown Ratings in the Toilet – SmackDown is struggling. Not since May 16th has the ratings been so low. The Blue Brand has dropped from 2.542 to 2.323 from last week to this week. This mirrors the RAW ratings plummet as well. I guess us not doing a weekly recap really did hurt the product (he says, mockingly).

Quick Hits – Triple H believes Ronda Rousey is a possibility to join the WWE in some form. Jeff Hardy has undergone successful surgery on his rotator cuff yesterday. He’ll be out from 6-9 months. Alberto El Patron is back with Combate Americas MMA promotion.
