Yesterday on SmackDown, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan unveiled the "SmackDown Tag Team Championship" and the "SmackDown Women's Championship".

And lo and behold, they look nearly-identical to their RAW counterparts except the colors! Is there no creativity left in WWE anymore?!

I'm less concerned about the fact that they don't want to pay for a new design or the candy coloring, and more concerned about the fact that RAW has the WWE Universal championship, WWE Women's championship, and WWE World Tag Team championship, while Smackdown has the WWE World championship, Smackdown Women's championship, and Smackdown Tag Team championship. They can't even keep up the illusion of parity in the names.

And NO, I won't let this go, because it's like they're working double time to come up with reasons for me to skip Smackdown.

I'm probably in the minority, but I really like the continuity of the belt's design with their RAW counterparts.

If I could now change one thing, I'd lose the white strap on the IC title.

The new belts confirm for me that the worst part of the tag team title belts was the copper plates. That same design looks FRESH AS HELL in silver and blue. Now, if we could get everyone to stop referring to belts that have no gold in them as "winning some gold," then I'd be super happy.

Smackdown Live has gotten off to a rough start, but this week's show (including Talking Smack) was the best two and a half hours of this marathon week of wrestling.

Yeah, this bugs me much more than the similar designs. I actually like the new tag belts, and the Women's belt is about the same as the red one (except with less effort since they have a red swoosh on it still).

I mean, I guess we have to wait until Raw to see if they rename the Raw belts, but calling the SD titles "Smackdown" belts while Raw gets the "WWE" belts makes them look even more B-show.

Even if Smackdown is by far the better, more interesting show.
