What's the story?

Sasha Banks and Bayley recently surprised everyone at a recent set of NXT tapings by turning up with the WWE Women's Tag-Team Titles and making a huge announcement regarding them and the women of NXT.

In case you didn't know...

The Boss 'N' Hug Connection outlasted Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, Naomi and Carmella, Nia Jax and Tamina, The Riott Squad and The IIconics in an Elimination Chamber match to become the inaugural WWE Women's Tag Team Champions.

Nia Jax and Tamina took clear exception to the pair celebrating the achievement on Monday Night Raw and look set to be the first real challengers for Bayley and Sasha Banks' titles.

The heart of the matter

But, as was widely reported beforehand, it now seems clear that just because The Boss 'N' Hug Connection are Monday Night Raw Superstars, it doesn't mean their opponents have to be from Monday Night Raw.

That's because the pair invaded NXT to make a huge announcement, making it official that the WWE Women's Tag-Team Titles will be defended on Raw, SmackDown and NXT.

This means that Bayley and Sasha Banks are likely to find themselves popping up everywhere to defend the titles, leading to some really exciting match-ups.


What's next?

It seems that the first challengers from NXT might have already made themselves known thanks to an exchange between the champs and NXT Superstar Candice LeRae, who hints at the fact she's found herself a tag-team partner.

Dakota Kai and Tegan Nox, otherwise known as Team Kick, also seem like strong potential challengers for Banks and Bayley when they've recovered from their respective knee injuries.

Regardless of who it is, that does indeed 'step up', the fact we're going to get new and fresh tag-team match-ups in the Women's Division is a great thing!
