They regained the titles in May and would hold them until August when meltear (Tam Nakano & Natsupoi) defeated them.
Although FWC was the highest-ranking women’s tag team, another team landed in the top 10. At number nine was The Hex (Marti Belle & Allysin Kay). They became the first NWA Women’s World Tag Team Champions in nearly four decades when the belts were reinstated in 2021.
