Willow Nightingale thinks the AEW women’s division has the depth for a Tag Team Championship.
In the past, there has been criticism about the number of championships in AEW, this was only exacerbated when Tony Khan brought Ring of Honor into the fold in 2022.
However, most of the titles in both companies are defended in the men’s division, with the women only having three singles titles across the two promotions. Willow Nightingale would like to see that changed.
During her appearance on ‘Get Comfy’, the former NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion was asked about the possibility of Women’s Tag Team Championships. Nightingale not only likes the idea, but finds it “very exciting.”
“I think the idea of having a tag title for the women’s division is very exciting.
“Personally, I’ve had some really fun tag team matches there with Skye Blue and Kris Statlander. I know I would want a piece of that, I already can puzzle piece and see who would be in line for it.
“We have Mercedes [Martinez] and Diamate, Anna Jay who has teamed with Tay [Melo], but she is out, instead of teaming with Tay, has teamed with Taya [Valkyrie].
“We have so many great women who would do that. Toni [Storm] is no longer super friendly with the Outcasts, but we still have Saraya and Ruby [Soho].
With the number of women currently competing in AEW, Nightingale believes the depth is there for new titles and that the division just needs the opportunity to make it work.
“I definitely think we have the depth to have tag team titles, it’s just a matter of, will that moment come? I know that division is ready to do what we can with it if the opportunity is granted to us.”
Willow Nightingale isn’t the only AEW star to call for Women’s Tag Team Titles
Nightingale isn’t the first woman to put the idea of Women’s Tag Titles forward. Back in March, AEW marked International Women’s Day by celebrating the women in the company.
Current Women’s World Champion Saraya responded by suggesting bringing in the titles would be “the perfect way” to celebrate.
