Before SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks battles 2021 Royal Rumble Match winner Bianca Belair on The Grandest Stage of Them All, the two elite Superstars will join forces to challenge the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax for the illustrious titles at WWE Fastlane.
Although Baszler & Jax may not always see eye-to-eye as individuals, the destructive tandem has personified squared circle dominance as two-time titleholders. But will they able to rebuke the combined opposition of two Superstars currently at the top of their game?
Banks has proven that she is, in fact, every bit of the “Blueprint” of the Women’s division as of late, and Belair has all the momentum in the world. The two overcame Baszler & Jax alongside sommelier Reginald on SmackDown, but the champions fired back with a win at WWE Elimination Chamber. But will they be able to work together effectively to conquer the champions with the WrestleMania showdown on the horizon?
Jax and Bazsler successfully defended the titles on this week’s NXT against Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai in controversial fashion. Will they be able to retain once more against Banks and Belair? Or will the champion and challenger head into WrestleMania as tag team champions?
