Thanks again for joining me for another opinion piece article on DiscussPW titled “Time For A Change! WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships”. Professional wrestling is fun, and I enjoy writing about it every chance. The WWE Women’s Tag Team division, or lack of a division, has been talked about by most of the wrestling community. I’m here to detail and give you all my honest opinions on these championships and why they shouldn’t have been created in the first place.
Why Were These Championships Even Created?
The WWE fans 2019 demanded Vince McMahon and the management team reintroduce the Women’s Tag Team Championships. Not to mention Mercedes Monae (Sasha Banks) and Pamela Rose (Bayley) talked to Vince McMahon and wanted to see these championships return. Suddenly weeks later, we saw on an episode of Monday Night Raw in December a segment where Vince McMahon was dressed as Santa Claus, and he had a bag, and in that bag was the new version of the Women’s Tag Team Championships. Once they were introduced, the fans went crazy without realizing that WWE had no idea how to book these championships. They only had four teams around the time. At Elimination Chamber, WWE had an Elimination Chamber match where we saw Boss and Hug Connection vs. Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Alexa Bliss, Nikki Cross, and Natalya and Tamina. Sasha Banks and Bayley, known as The Boss and Hug Connection, were crowned the first-ever Women’s Tag Team champions.
Having teams, to suddenly not having teams
WWE had many teams hold these Women’s Tag Team Championships, such as…
Boss and Hug Connections
The IIconics (Peyton Royce) and (Billie Kay)
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross
The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka) and (Kairi Sane)
Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax
Nikki Cross and Rhea Ripley
Natalya and Tamina
Carmella and Zelina Vega
Aaliyah and Raquel Rodriguez
Damage CNTRL (Dakota Kai) and (IO Sky)
The WWE has a track record of just putting teams together. Case and point, look at the list above. The only two teams that weren’t just put together for the sake of retaining a division and keeping it above water were Mercedes Monae (Sasha Banks) and Pamala Rose (Bayley), and The IIconics in Cassie (Peyton Royce) and Jessica McKay. Everybody else was just put together with no rhyme or reason. Now you look at the landscape of WWE and where it’s at. WWE realistically only has one credible team, and that’s Damage CNTRL, even though Io Sky and Dakota Kai were just put together starting at SummerSlam last year.
Are These Championships Worth Being Still Around?
I want to close with this because it needs to be addressed, and I feel I speak on this topic way more than others. And that is because most of the fans don’t care about these championships, which is understandable because WWE hasn’t given us a reason to care about these championships. By the way, WWE, making up tag teams doesn’t justify you even creating them. As the audience and the wrestlers, we thought you had a plan. At first, it seemed like you did, but after Mercedes Monae and Pamela Rose lost those championships, the credibility and investments that those championships had went downhill. I’m not blaming the ladies for that; I’m blaming the previous administration for not having a care in the world for those Women’s Tag Team Championships. I say no to answering the question above; they aren’t worth keeping around. The WWE will continue to find a way to keep these championships, even though fans aren’t interested simply because no storylines and the tag teams being put together aren’t real teams.
The WWE needs to do something I have wanted them to do for quite some time now. That is, get rid of not only The Tag Team championships on the main roster but also on NXT because you don’t have a lot of teams. They must introduce a mid-card Intercontinental Championship that floats between Raw, SmackDown, and NXT. Or WWE can do away with the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships and only have The Women’s Tag Team Championships and have those championships float between all three brands starting after WrestleMania.
