WWE has new Women’s Tag Team Champions.
Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler defeated Sasha Banks and Bayley tonight at WWE Payback in a back and forth contest that saw Shayna Baszler tap out the reigning SmackDown Women’s champion, Bayley. Shayna managed to lock up Sasha Bank’s leg and then lock Bayley in the Kirafuda Clutch and used Bank’s arm to choke Bayley and make her tap out.
While there is certainly no love lost between Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, there has been tension bubbling under the surface between Sasha Banks and Bayley for months now. Losing their tag team championships certainly won’t help things between them.
