WWE Adds 14th & 15th Championship Belts? WWE Asia Championship Tournament News! WWE Network, Raw, Smackdown Live Or NXT Spoilers?

Potential WWE Network, Raw, Smackdown Live, NXT Spoilers?

These are WWE’s current championship belts totally 13 that cover WWE Raw, Smackdown Live, NXT and 205 Live.

Prior to the launch of the WWE United Kingdom Championship Belt Tournament, it was reported that WWE was planning two more tournaments: one to crown a new WWE Asia Champion and one to crown a WWE Latin Champion.

It looks like scouting and other work concerning the WWE Asia Championship Belt Tournament has begun.

Malaysia Pro Wrestling providing the following update earlier this month noting WWE officials were scouting their event.


Looks like these new tournaments will not lead to their champions ending up on WWE Raw or WWE Smackdown Live. It looks like they’re destined for NXT, as was the case with the recent title defense of the WWE United Kingdom Championship belt.

And, as you can see, one of the WWE officials at the Malyaisia Pro Wrestling event was wearing a NXT golf shirt.

WWE apparently would like to do some local regional programming around the WWE United Kingdom Champion and the WWE UK superstars, but we look to be far off from that unless it will be a WWE Network affair only a few times per year. The UK plans will be a template for what the WWE does with any new WWE Asia Championship and WWE Latin America Champion.
