This past Sunday at WWE’s Elimination Chamber PPV, Sasha Banks and Bayley would make history. The two would survive the Chamber matchup to be crowned the modern era’s inaugural WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. The duo saw off stiff competition from Nia Jax and Tamina, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan, Billie Kay and Peyton Royce, and Carmella and Naomi, and Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville.
Given that these new championships are intended to be defended across multiple WWE brands, it didn’t take long for challengers to step forward, proclaiming their interest in the titles.
A New Challanger Appears
The first main roster team who may challenge the Boss ’N’ Hug Connection could be Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose.
Others have also expressed an interest, including NXT’s Dakota Kai and Tegan Nox.
Dakota would tweet out her thoughts, saying, “… women’s tag titles defended on all brands including @WWENXT , you say? @TeganNoxWWE_ #TheComeback #FlyKicks”
Bayley would respond shortly after with a succinct, ‘Please do, we’re ready”

An honest question: “Are you and Lita ready?”

Could this be teasing a future matchup between these four? Is this a match you’d like to see?
