Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax Win Women’s Tag Team Titles – Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax are your new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Tonight’s WWE Royal Rumble Kickoff pre-show saw Jax and Baszler defeat Charlotte Flair and RAW Women’s Champion Asuka to capture the titles. The match featured interference from Lacey Evans and WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, who helped Jax and Baszler win the straps.
Flair and Asuka controlled the match early on, but the challengers gained the upper hand by overpowering Asuka. “The Empress of Tomorrow” rallied and powerbombed Jax. Flair tagged in and cleared house. She floored Baszler with a flurry of offense, and she got a near fall with Natural Selection.
Baszler drilled Flair with a knee strike, but “The Queen” took down both of her opponents. Ric Flair came to the stage, and the distraction let Lacey Evans break up the Figure Eight. She also rocked Flair with a loaded Woman’s Right. Jax then pinned “The Queen” with a leg drop to win the match and the titles.
This is the second title reign for Jax and Baszler together. Asuka and Flair won the titles back at the WWE TLC pay-per-view on December 20, by defeating Jax and Baszler.
