What is the history?
In what is one of the most disconcerting news, PWInsider has reported that both Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar took the title replica belts to RAW. Thanks to Wrestling Inc. for giving us a close look at the titles.
Brock Lesnar was in the front row in RAW when his Royal Rumble opponent, Finn Balor, faced Braun Strowman in a singles match. Ronda Rousey participated in the main event where she joined Natalya to face Sasha Banks and Bayley in their first loss.
In case you did not know …
This week of RAW was the Go Home program before the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Brock Lesnar was on the show in a rare appearance to promote his title match against Finn Balor.
Lesnar and Rousey both brought their titles to the ring. Only that they were not the original titles that proudly have as champions. Let me try and elaborate on it in the next section.
The importance of the matter
WWE always has more than one copy of each of its titles in the rare case of an error. The fact that these titles were delivered as backup copies means that the titles may have been forgotten at home.
Another possibility that has been raised in PWInsider is that WWE has given them the wrong belt. Here we take a close look at the two belts that made their way to television in the most recent episode of RAW from Oklahoma:
I had to look at Monday Night Raw again and I could not help but notice that something was wrong with Brock Lesnar's belt. Hmm ? oh it's a replica pic.twitter.com/hzLa6AinJY

This could be one of those things that we never found the answer to!
Brock Lesnar faces Finn Balor at the Royal Rumble, while Ronda Rousey faces Sasha Banks. Both superstars can have odds in favorites to keep their highly coveted titles. But will they wear their own belts to the show or not?
