Women’s Tag title Triple Threat announced for Backlash

This is presumably what Sasha Banks & Bayley Dos Straps’ segment on Raw tonight was going to set-up. But for some reason, went ahead and posted it on their website, so...

Here’s their sales pitch, which explains why despite their possibly spoiling a more exciting reveal on television - the story behind the match is really good:

Four teams have held the Women’s Tag Team Championships, and three of them will be battling for the gold at WWE Backlash. Bayley & Sasha Banks will defend their newly-won titles against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and The IIconics in a loaded Triple Threat Match.

The SmackDown Women’s Champion & The Boss are fresh off reclaiming the titles on SmackDown with a win over Bliss & Cross. After an extended absence from the squared circle, The IIconics have made their intentions clear since their return: They want their titles back.

Will the “role models” use the opportunity as a launching point for a long title reign? Or will a former championship tandem once again claim tag team glory?

Don’t miss WWE Backlash, streaming on the award-winning WWE Network, Sunday, June 14, at 7 ET/4 PT!

Will what happens in the ring be worthy of a Triple Threat that represents most of the titles’ history? Here’s an updated look at the Backlash card while you mull over your answer:
