Matt Hardy Criticises Current WWE Tag Team Title Belt Designs
Matt Hardy on WWE Tag Team Titles
Matt Hardy has criticised WWE's current tag team title belts, admitting that he thinks the blue and red titles are a step back from the previous incarnations of the championships.
Hardy said on his podcast:
"I would say my favourite belt design is the first-ever WWE Tag Team Titles that we won and the ones that were circulating in the late 90s, and early 2000s. I love those. I didn't like whenever they switched to the blue and red belts of the SmackDown tag belts. You know, I love those classic tag team titles because those are the ones, when we were huge fans, we really loved wrestling and we dreamed about having those and then we ultimately won them, which was so super cool. The blue and red world tag team championship, I thought that was a step back from the other titles, you know, especially the ones that preceded them, the tag titles before them look really, really nice. I think it was a step backward."
The current red and blue designs with Spartan helms have been in use since WWE reintroduced the brand split in 2016.
Hardy is currently in All Elite Wrestling as part of The Firm.
