It was just yesterday that I looked into the current WWE women’s tag team champions, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax, and saw just how bad they’ve been in singles matches this year. Both of them have losing records, but Baszler has been beaten much more than Jax, and oftentimes because of her.
As a tag team, however, they were 12-1 in 2021 coming into this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, and the only loss was a six-woman tag match.
The two were in the middle of a match against Lana & Naomi when Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke hit the scene to antagonize Jax. That’s the same duo who attacked her backstage last week.
Naturally, she decided to ditch the match in favor of chasing them down and Baszler was almost immediately pinned when she was double teamed by Lana and Naomi back in the ring. It’s starting to feel more and more like this is the slow build to a breakup or, at the very least, showing some cracks in the armor where the champs are vulnerable and could be in danger of dropping their titles.

Update: Later in the show, Baszler got in Jax’s face backstage to say she better get her head in the game “or else.”
