WWE’s NXT brand saw a big change when their Women’s Tag Team Champions were called up to the main roster. New champions in NXT were not discussed, nor did Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn relinquish their titles.
WWE set up Women’s Tag Team unification match, and that will effectively nix the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles. After all, no matter how that match turns out, main roster Superstars will hold those titles.
Ringside News reached out to inquire about how long WWE had these plans in mind for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles. We were told that the plan to nix those belts came around the time of the 2023 WWE Draft itself.
NXT’s women’s division has a lot of younger talent right now, and they really can’t support a tag team title situation right now. It was a good idea that could always be revisited down the line, but the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles are going away.
Only time will tell if the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles also get a facelift, like so many other title belts have in the company. Triple H has led the charge in redesigning those title belts.
The NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles had a nice run. Teams like Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell, Dakota Kai and Raquel Rodriguez, Toxic Attraction, and Katana Chance and Kayden Carter held the titles. All of those teams are now either on the main roster, or broken up. To be honest, those titles are lucky that they weren’t defunct the moment Cora Jade tossed hers in the trash, a symbolic gesture within pro wrestling that a title is done.
