The match originally was planned to be the champions Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler against the RAW Women’s Champion Asuka & Lana. Lana was taken out by the champions last week on RAW which prompted the mystery opponent.
This win is also huge for Asuka as she has become a double champion by adding the tag titles to her current RAW Women’s Championship. She is also now a two-time Women’s Tag Team Champion as she held the titles previously with Kairi Sane and the first woman to hold the belts with two different partners.
Flair’s comeback in this match made logical sense storyline wise as Jax was the one to take her out prior to her time off.
