The night after Sasha Banks & Bayley became champions, WWE officially announced where the Women’s Tag Team titles will be able to be defended.
Banks & Bayley made their first appearance on Raw as Tag Team Champions. They cut a promo about winning the titles, with them announcing that they plan on defending against teams from the past, present, and future on “Raw, SmackDown, and even NXT.”
Three teams from Raw and three teams from SmackDown were included in the Elimination Chamber match to crown WWE’s first Women’s Tag Team Champions of this era. Banks & Bayley defeated Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville, Nia Jax & Tamina, Liv Morgan & Sarah Logan, Peyton Royce & Billie Kay, and Naomi & Carmella to win the titles.
Banks & Bayley’s segment on this week’s Raw ended with an angle where they were interrupted by Jax & Tamina. Jax said Banks only cares about herself — and history shows that she loses titles on her first defense. Jax & Tamina tried to attack Banks & Bayley but were fought off before they could get into the ring.
