Last night during the NXT tapings at Full Sail, the newly crowned Women’s Tag Team Champions surprised the crowd. Sasha Banks and Bayley got a huge pop, according to those in attendance. As we reported this week, the Women’s Tag Team Championships will be defended on Raw, SmackDown and NXT. Boss ‘N’ Hug made that same promise to the NXT live crowd in their promo last night.
Bayley told the crowd that it was good to be home. She also reminded fans that the last time Banks had been in an NXT ring was at NXT TakeOver: Respect when she lost to Bayley in an Iron Man match.
It will be interesting to see how often the Tag Team Champions jump from one brand to the other to defend their titles. Opening them up to NXT will allow them to lock up with teams like the Sky Pirates, made up of Kairi Sane and lo Shirai, or MMA alums Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir. It has been reported recently their first challengers are likely the team of Nia Jax and Tamina.
