Renee Paquette Comments On The Status Of The WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles

Renne Paquette recently spoke on her podcast Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha regarding the current Sasha Banks and Naomi situation and the status of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.

The tag team gold has always been a topic of discussion on the validity of the belts since its inception in 2019. At the time there were some legitimate tag teams, although not a plethora. As time has gone on, WWE started the trend of breaking up teams and putting teams together just to save face of the non-existent division.

Eventually, everything has come to this point where the titles are vacant for the first time in their existence with the last champions, Sasha Banks and Naomi, suspended indefinitely.WWE announced a tournament will be coming up to crown new champions without a division to fight for the gold.

Paquette, who was with WWE when the titles were created, had the following to say about the history and current status of the championships.

“The women’s tag titles have only existed in WWE for a couple of years and as soon as they were brought into the fold, they were important for about 30 seconds, and then nobody cared. There was no true women’s tag teams and they just, they lost their luster really quickly. The best case is that they finally let these women do what they want to do and start really working on the tag division.” 

While talking about Naomi –

“Naomi has been around for a long time. I mean, she is hands down one of those fan favorites. One of the best athletes on the entire roster male or female.”

She adds in regards to Sasha specifically on if she sees a future outside of WWE for The Boss if it comes to that –

“You know, the women’s roster in AEW is great but they could always use some more stars. I wouldn’t be surprised but, I also think Sasha’s somebody who also loves Japanese wrestling. When she left, she took a hiatus however long ago a couple of years ago she was in Japan, wrestling with Meiko Satomura. She loves professional wrestling it is something that she lives and breathes so I wouldn’t be surprised to see her make a move.”

There has been no official word on the futures of Banks or Naomi at this time or further information for the tournament coming for the tag belts. It has been rumored that teams from NXT 2.0 will have to be used for the tournament but there is no guarantee they would officially be called up to the main roster afterward.
