Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler were scheduled to defend their tag team titles against Lana and RAW Women's Champion Asuka at WWE TLC 2020. However, this week on Monday Night RAW, Jax and Baszler attacked Lana, injuring her and taking her out of the title match this Sunday.
The company has since announced that Asuka will team with a mystery opponent and face the two at WWE TLC 2020. The booking has left fans wondering what WWE plans to do with the women's tag team titles going forward.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez reported that the women's tag team titles are unlikely to change hands at WWE TLC 2020. They also added that the team of Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott are likely being groomed as the next challengers for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship going forward. Morgan and Riott defeated the team of Natalya and Billie Kay on Friday Night SmackDown.
