In a segment that took place on the June 9 episode of SmackDown, there’s not enough room for two sets of Tag Team Titles on the main roster.
Introduced to the ring by Kayla Braxton, the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn made their way to the ring. Before they were able to talk, Ronda Rousey’s music hit. The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champs Rousey and Shayna Baszler made their way out.
Baszler took to the mic first and asked Fyre & Dawn if they knew the history of the NXT tag titles. She states that the only reason they exist is because of her and that they are technically the “Shayna Baszler Commemorative Titles.”
Rousey says that she has been crunching some numbers and have already “ran through” the division. She states there is not enough room for both sets of titles. Dawn spoke up and asked if she was suggesting a unification match and the NXT champs agreed.
The segment would turn physical with Rousey and Baszler getting the upper hand but Dawn and Fyre would get the final punches sending the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champs retreating.
The match will take place in two weeks on SmackDown June 23.
