The WWE Draft has significantly altered the company's landscape, with numerous stars transitioning to new brands and finding their footing on either RAW or SmackDown. However, fans are concerned about Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez, as the duo may be in danger of losing their titles to Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler.

Earlier this year, Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler rekindled their alliance on the blue brand and began making waves in the tag team division. The formidable pair also earned the right to challenge for the titles after emerging victorious in a Fatal 4-way match at WrestleMania 39.

Plans for the title match were put on hold when both Rousey and Baszler suffered injuries. However, fans anticipate that the duo, The Baddest Woman on the Planet and The Queen of Spades, will return soon and potentially dethrone fan favorites Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez, who recently captured the titles and were drafted to the same brand as their would-be adversaries.

Currently, the RAW Women's division features only two other teams, one of which Morgan and Raquel have already defeated – Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville. Fans predict that Rousey and Baszler will waste no time in pursuing the gold and may very well claim it.

Two Tag Team Titles Post-Draft

Following Draft 2023, WWE's main roster now boasts two Women's Tag Team Champions. In 2021, WWE introduced a new set of Women's Tag Team Championships when Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax interfered in Dakota Kai and Raquel Rodriguez's title match on the developmental brand.

WWE later rectified the situation by relocating the champions to NXT. The following week, the company created a new set of titles for the women's division on the developmental brand and awarded them to Dakota Kai and Raquel Rodriguez.

Over the years, the developmental brand has seen numerous challengers and champions vying for the title. After two years, the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships migrated to the main roster when Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn were drafted to WWE SmackDown, while the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions moved to Monday Night RAW.

There are no current plans to unify the titles. However, Isla Dawn has stated they intend to defend the championships across all three brands during their reign. How WWE will further develop the women's tag team division remains to be seen.
