Ranking the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions from worst to best
Bliss Cross Applesauce
On the Aug. 5 episode of Raw, the unlikely team of Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross won a fatal four-way tag team elimination match to become the third WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. The pair bonded back in May when Cross debuted on Raw.
Later, she replaced Alexa in the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. In June, they unsuccessfully challenged The IIconics for the tag titles and took part in an ongoing feud with Bayley.
Bliss and Cross quickly became the most interesting pairing in the division en route to their eventual upset a few days before SummerSlam. At “The Biggest Party of The Summer,” they successfully retained the titles in a rematch against The IIconics, which took place on the kickoff show.
Bliss Cross Applesauce enjoyed a 61-day reign and they were the first fighting champions. In two months, they picked up strong title defenses against Fire & Desire and The Kabuki Warriors.
Bliss and Cross’ tenure wasn’t that long but they arguably did more to make the division look competitive than any other winners this year. They will definitely be contenders to look out for in 2020. It could be fun to see them eventually revisit their feud with Sasha Banks and Bayley.
