Rumors on RAW Underground Title Belt, WWE Bringing Back "Talking Smack"?

Rumors on RAW Underground Title Belt, WWE Bringing Back "Talking Smack"?
- WWE has reportedly discussed the potential introduction of a RAW Underground Title belt.

There's no word yet on if WWE will begin using a RAW Underground Title, but @BeltFanDan reports that the idea of a title for Shane McMahon's new concept was pitched at one point.

It was noted that suggestions for the RAW Underground Title included a design that would look "beat up" like the WWE Hardcore Title, with spray paint and simulated brick texturing.

- Ever since Talking Smack was cancelled in 2017, many fans and former host of Talking Smack, Renee Young, have wanted the show to return. A new report from PWInsider.com reveals that the WWE Network may bring back the show as soon as later this month.

PWInsider was told that there have been talks to bring back Talking Smack since January 2020 internally. However, the company has yet to pull the trigger on it.

Talking Smack aired on the WWE Network following SmackDown, and it featured a different side of the SmackDown roster with Daniel Bryan, who served as GM of SmackDown at the time, and Renee Young hosting the show.

One of the most iconic moments of the show was The Miz delivering an impassioned promo on Daniel Bryan after Bryan's comments towards The Miz and his style of wrestling. The show was cancelled in 2017.
