On the December 24 edition of Monday Night RAW, Vince McMahon announced the creation of the first-ever Women’s Tag Team Division in 2019.
Since then, there have already been reports on what plans the creative team has for the female wrestlers that will try to win the titles.
A good choice would be for Bayley and Sasha Banks to become the inaugural champions. The two wrestlers and friends have recently formed a tag team, but it seems the company has no plans for them at the moment.
Both Banks and Bayley were among the best wrestlers in NXT and had some great battles in some pay-per-views (NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn in 2015, 30-minute Iron Man Match at NXT Takeover: Respect for the NXT Women’s Championship).
During their time in NXT, they both became fan favourites and, thanks to their talent and potential, they joined the main roster and immediately tried to make a statement.
Banks is a four-time RAW Women’s Champion, while Bayley has become the champion only once (prior WrestleMania 33). In the past few months, though, the company seems to have no plans for them.
Initially, they were about to starting an intense feud, however they turned things around and became allies again. Since then, they have sunk into midcard and, just like other superstars, have been involved in meaningless matches and rivalries.
But, the Women’s Tag Team titles can bring their careers back on track. If they win the title, they will very likely be fighting champions and will regularly defend their titles.
Furthermore, their status as former champions will make the title relevant, while their fanbase will make the WWE present them as babyfaces.
As a result, they could create feuds with the Riott Squad, the IIconics, Nia Jax and Tamina, which will help them maintain the momentum.
Such a scenario could likely lead to the revival of their rivalry or even to their return to the title picture, as they both have not competed for the Women’s title in a long time.
Overall, if the WWE decides to go on with Banks and Bayley as the Women’s Tag Team champions, it will help both superstars bring their career back on track and again become “main-event” wrestlers and title contenders.
