WWE introduced Women’s Tag Team Titles, but they haven’t been able to do much with them at this point. The titles are an afterthought in a lot of cases, even changing hands during a kickoff show.
Corey Graves has seen this introduction go down in front of his eyes. He has also witnessed a lack of competition in the Women’s Tag Team Division. The company has some strong unions in the ring, but not enough to make a sustainable division.
During After The Bell, Graves discussed this current situation and how the lack of teams is killing the division.
“I don’t mean this as any disrespect to any of the women on RAW or SmackDown that compete for the Women’s Tag Team Championships. I feel like the lack of legitimate tag teams is what’s killing that division. You have people that show up randomly that want a match and now they’re a team. You’ve got Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke who are about the closest thing to a legitimate team.”
“You’ve got Nia and Shayna that have grown into that role, but it’s just been a bunch of mashups of two random people competing for the championships and I feel like it’s just never really allowed that division to shine and become a focus like I know it’s capable of just like the men’s tag team championships. They should be viewed on that same ground, but I find it hard to believe that it’s going to achieve those heights until you have more legitimate teams holding the championships.”
WrestleMania could see a big build for a Women’s Tag Team Tile match. Several women were very happy about the introduction of this division when Vince McMahon made his big reveal during a Christmas episode of RAW in 2018, but it’s been quite a while since those titles were introduced and we’re still waiting for the division to really find their footing.
