According to a recent report, WWE sees big things in store for two of its current champions.
The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships haven’t had the best of luck over the past year, but some in the company are reportedly hoping that’s about to change.
Last year, the titles were vacated when Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out of Monday Night Raw amidst reported creative disputes. It would be months before a new set of champions was crowned, with Aliyah and Raquel Rodriguez capturing the belts in the finals of a tournament on Raw.
Damage CTRL enjoyed a healthy reign with the titles (though their reign was briefly interrupted by a win from Asuka and Alexa Bliss), and they remained champions for a number of months before being unseated by Becky Lynch and Lita ahead of WrestleMania. Lynch lost the titles when Trish Stratus stepped in after Lita was attacked backstage, only to reveal that Stratus herself had attacked her friend. Stratus also launched an attack on Becky Lynch, earning Raquel Rodriguez another run with the titles alongside Liv Morgan.
However, disaster struck once more when Morgan suffered an injury and the titles once again had to be vacated. Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler held the titles for just over a month, but at Money in the Bank, Baszler shockingly turned on her partner, allowing Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez to become champions once again.
Morgan and Rodriguez weren’t in for a long title reign, though, as on the July 17th episode of Monday Night Raw, they shockingly lost the titles to the rising team of Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green. According to a recent report from WrestleVotes, those within WWE are optimistic about Green and Deville as champions, and there’s hope the team can help bolster the titles with a substantial run as champions.
“There is a feeling of optimism from the company around the new Women’s Tag Champs in Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville, with hopes the two can “stabilize” the tag titles with a substantial run as champions.”
