Sasha Banks & Bayley have gone everywhere to show off their Women’s Tag Team titles, and announce they’re open to challengers from all WWE’s brands. But they hadn’t actually defended the belts until Sun., Mar. 10 in Cleveland when they faced Nia Jax & Tamina at Fastlane.
There was a subplot about Banks’ inability to defend championships after she’s won them, but the main story was the size and power advantage possessed by the challengers. The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection used quick tags and speed early on, but both Bayley and Sasha spent time being worn down by the Samoan duo.
Wrestling ability would trump strength in the end though, as Bayley countered a powerbomb to get the pin and keep the titles. And then the real action began...
Tamina and Nia set about throwing the champs all around the ringside area after their loss, prompting Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix to get out of her seat at commentary and stand up to the cousins. But that didn’t go so well...
After Jax attacked the Glamazon from behind, her old Divas of Doom tag partner Natalya tried to make the save... and got put down, too.
The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection may still have the titles, but who’s going to stop Nia & Tamina?
