Since the reveal of the new WWE Women’s Championship Belt on the WrestleMania 32 pre-show, the women’s division has been at the forefront of the current product. For the first time in 17 years, the women would no longer be referred to as “Divas” but as “Female Superstars”, effectively putting them at the same level as their male counterparts. The women have been given huge opportunities week in and week out, and they have been nothing short of impressive. Over the last two years WWE fans have seen some of the most energetic and physical matches and promos from the women’s division. There have also been a lot of firsts for the female superstars – starting with match featuring two women in a main event on Monday Night Raw, which hasn’t been done since Trish Stratus and Lita did it in 2004. Other firsts for the women’s division include the first ever women’s Steel Cage Match (which also headlined an episode of Monday Night Raw), the first ever Women’s Hell in a Cell match, the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble, the first ever Last Woman Standing match, and the first ever Women’s TLC match. The biggest moment for the women had to be the special announcement made by Stephanie McMahon in July 2018… the first ever ALL WOMEN’s PPV – WWE Evolution. The PPV was well put together and all in all a great show.
Fast forward to the Christmas Eve episode of Monday Night Raw – WWE fans FINALLY got the news they had been wanting for so long. Mr. McMahon (dressed as Santa) announced that 2019 would bring new Tag Team Champions… to the WOMEN’S DIVISION! Merry Christmas to the female superstars, who are MORE than deserving of this!
How and when will they be revealed? Who will be the inaugural WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions?
My predictions? My top picks are Nia Jax/Tamina or the Riott Squad. Then again, who knows what old alliances could be reformed, or possibly some new ones we didn’t see coming..
Stay tuned… more to come!
