During this week’s After The Bell broadcast, Corey Graves analyzed the current situation of the WWE women’s team division, reviewing the victory of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler at Royal Rumble 2021. Here are the most outstanding statements.
I don’t want to disrespect any of the women on RAW or SmackDown competing for the Women’s Tag Team Championships. But I feel like the lack of legitimate teams is killing that division. Most teams are two people who got together randomly looking for a tag team match and end up forming a team. I think the closest thing to a real team is Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke.
The current champions, Nia and Shayna, have grown a lot as a team, but that was achieved with a lot of random combinations of people competing for a championship. I feel like WWE never allowed that division to stand out from the rest and become interesting like the male tag team division. It’s hard for me to believe at this point that there are more real teams managing to win the titles.
On the latest episode of Monday Night RAW, Naomi and Lana defeated the teams of Charlotte Flair & Asuka and Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke to become the next challengers to the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. So far, it has not been relieved when both teams met.
