As previously reported, women’s tag team champions Sasha Banks and Naomi reportedly walked out of WWE RAW due to creative issues with Vince McMahon.
During the May 20th 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown, Michael Cole brought up how “Sasha and Naomi let us all down” and “their actions disappointed millions of WWE fans.” Cole said because of what they did, they have been suspended indefinitely and there will be a tournament to crown new women’s tag team champions.
It appears that WWE is still figuring out what to do with the women’s tag team titles. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted the following…
“OK, so here’s the situation with the tag team title. They’re going to do a tournament. There are pitches that have been made, and that’s where we’re at right now. So, there’s not a final thing. I know of different ideas. It does feel like it’ll probably be four teams.
Nikki and Doudrop probably one of them. Shayna and Natalya probably the favorites, because they’re probably the best of the four teams, what they have. And as far as the other two teams, there’s several different options, but essentially it would be putting Carmella and Zelina back together even though they’ve broken up or just having two people who have never teamed before and two teams of just, people put together, whatever it is and however it is. But, yeah, nothing is finalized right now.” (quote courtesy of RingsideNews.com)
