The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships are safe despite some concerns seen on Raw.
On the September 4th episode Adam Pearce was heard saying that Piper Niven was not cleared to compete. The statement by Pearce gave unwanted flashbacks to fans who feared that once again the titles looked to be at risk of being relinquished.
Some positive news has been reported about Niven courtesy of Fightful Select. It is stated that the curse of the titles has not returned and that Niven is dealing with a short illness. There are hopes internally that the Tag Team Champion will be making her return in a few weeks and the absence is very much a short-term situation.
The Curse Of The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships
The titles have been a victim of bad luck during their very short history in the company. Multiple vacations have been seen due to injuries or walkouts, resulting in last-minute rewrites to figure out who will be champion next. Most recently, Chelsea Green looked to be the latest victim of the curse as her title-winning partner Sonya Deville has been sidelined until further notice with an ACL injury.
Green was desperate to keep hold of the championships, which were her first title wins in WWE. Following an entertaining and extensive search on social media, Niven demanded that she be Green’s partner, snatching one of the titles off of Chelsea Green. It was later announced that while Niven’s method was unorthodox, Niven would be recognised as the new champion moving forward.
TJR Wrestling would like to wish Piper Niven a full and speedy recovery.
