On last week’s SmackDown, Bayley and Sasha Banks defeated Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss to become the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
On last night’s episode of WWE Backstage, Banks and Bayley’s title victory was discussed by the likes of Paige, Beth Phoenix, and Ember Moon. Paige said that the Women’s Tag Titles aren’t being used to their full potential and they’ve been thrown under the rug in WWE.
I feel like the tag team championships haven’t been utilized to their full potential, considering everyone that’s had them. I feel like they’re not being defended. I don’t think they’ve been used right, they’ve kind of been thrown under the rug. They’re not being taken very seriously and I just feel like at some point they have to be taken seriously because this is such a big moment for the women’s division to have these tag team titles — instead of just having one championship.
Now we have a tag team division and we could utilize so many of the tag teams we have, even down in NXT or up in RAW and SmackDown. Bayley and Sasha — they’re good, they’re solid, we all love them, but let’s try and build some other people.
Ember Moon agreed with Paige and both women felt that putting the titles on Bayley and Banks wasn’t necessarily the right decision.
