JR Speaks on Akbar’s Funeral, Why WWE Tag Titles Changed

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross posted the following on his Twitter account: "Just left Scandor Akbar’s funeral service in Wichita Falls, Texas. Dan Hodge & several Dallas based wrestlers attended. He was a beloved guy."

F4WOnline.com is reporting that Vince McMahon decided to change the Unified Tag Team Titles to one single set of WWE Tag Team Titles for two reasons. One is because Vince wanted to market a new set of belts so that fans could buy replica versions, and two is because it was said to be quite difficult for talent to get through security at airports carrying two sets of belts on them.
