World Tag-Team Championship
After the brand were split into two, the WWE decided to use its original WWE Tag-Team Championship and make it exclusive to the RAW brand. The official name now doesn't have the prefix attached to it. This also left the SmackDown! brand without Tag-Team titles so the decision was made to create the new WWE Tag-Team Championship which would be SmackDown! exclusive.
