Sasha Banks and Bayley as the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions

Sasha Banks and Bayley became the inaugural WWE Women's Tag Team Champions at the last year's Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. The Boss N'Hug Connection had a solid run with the titles until WrestleMania 35 where they dropped their titles to The IIconics.

This lost at the 'Grandest Stage of Them All' also forced Sasha Banks to take a 4-month hiatus from in-ring action. Upon return, Banks turned heel, and her best friend Bayley soon followed suit.

Meanwhile, the Women's Tag Team Championships changed hands between The IIconics, The Kabuki Warriors, and the team of Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross. While The Kabuki Warriors had the most dominant title reign, Bliss and Cross came close with their impressive run as the champions. They were also the first ones to win the Women's Tag Team Championships twice.

They won the titles for the second time at WresleMania 36 earlier this yea and held the Tag Team Championships for 55 days before dropping it to Sasha Banks and Bayley at this week's SmackDown.
