Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross Win WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles


Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross are the new champs

The IIconics (Billie Kay & Peyton Royce) have been dethroned by Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross as the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. 

During Monday’s episode of RAW in Pittsburgh, PA at the PPG Paints Arena, WWE held a Fatal 4-Way Elimination Match. In this contest, Bliss and Cross beat The IIconics, Kairi Sane & Asuka, and Sonya Deville & Mandy Rose to win the titles. 

This marks the first time that Bliss and Cross have held the titles. It also marks Cross’ first title reign on the main roster.

The IIconics beat Bayley and Sasha Banks at WrestleMania 35 back in April to win the titles. Nia Jax & Tamina, Beth Phoenix & Natalya were also part of the Fatal 4-Way Match at this show. 

The company has already made it known that they’re going with the idea of one set of champions defending the gold on both brands – Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live. 

As of this writing, there’s no word yet on when The IIconics will get their rematch for the titles.

Although not confirmed, it’s possible that they will get a rematch against Bliss and Cross at Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event.
