Ranking the top 10 WWE title changes of 2019
- Whose crowning moment of glory was the best in 2019?
#9 Kabuki Warriors defeat Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships (Hell in a Cell)
Right after WrestleMania, Asuka and Kairi Sane were paired together with Paige as their manager. They seemed like the team to build the women's tag team division around, but WWE just ignored them and the division as a whole.
The IIconics did a whole lot of nothing with the Women's Tag Team titles and the dynamic Japanese duo was also nowhere to be seen, possibly because of the Wildcard rule, which slashed the number of opportunities in half. Only when Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross captured them did the belts actually get featured on TV.
Asuka and Kairi became known as the Kabuki Warriors and got a title shot from out of the blue at Hell in a Cell. And boy, did they grab the opportunity. The Kabuki Warriors turned heel, introducing the 'spitting green mist' shtick to the women's division, and won the Women's tag team titles from Alexa and Nikki. They are in a very prominent position now, thanks to their victory at the October pay-per-view. As sudden as the match and title change were, the Kabuki Warriors are now soaring on RAW and are lovely to watch.Published 10 Dec 2019, 00:26 IST
