Ranking the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions from worst to best
The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection
To say the inaugural champions were disappointing would be an understatement. It’s a real shame too because as noted Sasha Banks and Bayley fought so hard to make the new titles a reality.
WWE handled Bayley and Banks pretty poorly in 2018, but they did a good job of establishing them as a premier team. As such, it was a feel-good moment when they defeated Fire & Desire at Elimination Chamber to become the first WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Afterward, there was so much excitement around the new champions and the potential for women’s tag team division. The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection brought the belts back to NXT, establishing them as floating titles that could be defended on any brand. It added more intrigue and Banks and Bayley seemed like the perfect team to build around.
All of that potential didn’t materialize into an eventful reign as they lost the titles after just 49 days in their second defense at WrestleMania 35. It was an odd decision to take the belts off of them so soon, especially when they didn’t even get a chance to legitimize them.
Although their first reign felt like a waste, it wouldn’t hard to imagine that they could regain the titles someday. Hopefully, they will get another chance to help elevate the division they helped to initiate.
