Sasha Banks and Naomi were stripped of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship after they walked out during the May 16th, 2022, episode of Monday Night RAW. WWE announced Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament after that. The finals took place on this week’s RAW and it featured an expected result.
Raquel Rodriquez and Aliyah faced off against Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky in the Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament Finals. In the end, Rodriguez and Aliyah won the match.
This decision was not met with a positive response by a lot of people. Fans took to Twitter and expressed their disappointment with the result.
One fan noted, “This Dakota Kai thing is weird because she lost the match as the illegal woman in their last two matches. She tapped to Asuka (but wasn’t legal) and she got pinned by Aliyah (but wasn’t legal. I hope this isn’t already leading to her leaving the group.” Others shared that same sentiment.
This could have been on purpose, which would lead Bayley’s faction to seek a rematch. Only time will tell how Triple H books this story, but eagle-eyed fans certainly noticed this detail.
Regardless, it remains to be seen how the two will be booked as the tag team champions in the coming weeks.
