During tonight’s episode of WWE NXT, Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon became the new NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.
The titles were introduced tonight, confirming reports that surfaced earlier this week that William Regal would be announcing the addition of the belts. The inaugural holder of the belts were the winners of the first-ever Women’s Dusty Tag Team Classic Tournament—Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez.
The pair didn’t hold the titles for long before their first defense was announced, however. Later in the evening, Kai and Gonzalez defended their titles against the now-current champs, Blackheart and Moon.
Blackheart and Moon faced Kai and Gonzalez in the finals of the Dusty Classic during NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day, but lost to the inaugural champs. For winning the Classic, Kai and Gonzalez won a WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship title match against the current holders Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax. Baszler and Jax retained their belts.
