As always, please let us know your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to tell us what you think WWE has planned next for the road to WrestleMania:
#5 Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross might receive a title shot
The women's tag-team division of WWE is yet to reach its full potential, and the division certainly needs more tag teams to become competitive. The scenario is the same, both on SmackDown as well as on RAW.
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross, the former Women's Tag Team Champions, faced Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville in a tag team match. It was a decent match and the team of Bliss and Cross stood tall with a victory. However, a major hint was dropped during the match.
The commentary team of SmackDown mentioned that the winners could receive a tag team title shot against The Kabuki Warriors. Although Asuka and Kairi Sane are part of RAW, the twin belts can be defended in any brand. Moreover, The Kabuki Warriors don't have any feud at the moment and hence, Bliss and Cross could be next in the line.
