The inception of WWE's "Women’s Evolution" spurred discussions about reinstating the Women’s Tag Team Championship, which had been absent from the women’s division since the 1980s. The potential re-emergence of this esteemed title was greeted with enthusiastic support from fans and professional wrestlers alike, who passionately advocated for its return.
In the waning months of 2018, WWE's Chairman Vince McMahon announced the return of the Women's Tag Team championship. The declaration was met with widespread excitement and high expectations. However, the optimism was fleeting.
The inaugural champions, Bayley and Sasha Banks, now known as Mercedes Moné, held the title for two months. The team that usurped them, The IIconics, only defended their title three times on national television during their four-month reign.
Asuka and Kairi Sane’s Kabuki Warriors maintained their grip on the championship for the longest duration. Unfortunately, their six-month reign is most memorable for the concussion Sane suffered during a TLC match. Regrettably, recent developments have cast a pall over the championship.
For the second time in just over a year, an injury — this time to Liv Morgan — has left the title vacant. This development comes shortly after Morgan expressed her desire to stabilize the Women's Tag Team championship.
These unfortunate occurrences have led to murmurs and speculation about a possible "curse" on the belts.
Bayley Stands Firm for Championship
Bayley, who was instrumental in pushing for the reintroduction of the Women’s Tag Team Championship, acknowledges its turbulent history.
Despite the challenges and setbacks, she refuses to relinquish hope for the future of the championship. While the path of the Women’s Tag Team Championship has been riddled with obstacles, the resolve of its advocates remains unwavering.
Bayley's resilience serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of women's wrestling. She continues to champion the cause, determined to restore the glory and prestige that the Women’s Tag Team Championship once embodied.
The fervor for this title remains undiminished, proving that the spirit of the "Women’s Evolution" is still very much alive and continuing to redefine the landscape of WWE.
