WWE Elimination Chamber is tonight and the company booked a WWE Women’s Tag Team Title match at the last minute. This booking decision could also cause fallout on the road to WrestleMania.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained the likely booking direction of this match. It’s not likely that Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will drop their titles since they just appeared on NXT to hype a match against Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez. Banks and Belair also have WrestleMania to build toward and this match will likely be used as a catalyst for that.
“The classic booking would be that Sasha and Bianca have a falling out and then it turns into a bit more heated than ‘oh we’re buddies and we’re gonna do a championship match because we’re friends.'”
WrestleMania could feature the EST of WWE vs The Boss. That match might also include the two opponents as WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. WWE certainly has a big decision to make, but it’s also very likely that this match at Elimination Chamber will be used to cause some actual tension between the two.
