Paige And Ember Moon Unhappy About Bayley And Sasha Banks Winning The WWE Women's Tag Team Championships
They want to see other women get a chance...
On last week's episode of Friday Night SmackDown, Bayley and Sasha Banks defeated Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross to capture the Women's Tag Team Championships.
The reaction to the win was mostly positive, as many felt the reign would add another layer to their slow-burn storyline, which looks set to eventually culminate in a match between the two best friends. Ember Moon and Paige were less than happy about Banks' and Bayley's victory, however, and voiced their displeasure on last night's episode of WWE Backstage.
The War Goddess said: "I don't think this was the right decision to make. And this is why, Bayley and Sasha Banks, they sell themselves and this storyline that they've been doing with this rift between them I think sells itself. Whatever pay-per-view that will be on it sells itself. I don't think that they needed the tag titles because what it does, it doesn't elevate their story. Their story is going to go wherever it's going to.
"It devalues the tag team championship match that was supposed to be The IIconics returning from a hiatus and also Bliss-Cross apple sauce… I think that it just really didn't elevate their story but it did take away from The IIconics vs. Bliss-Cross."
Paige added: "I just feel like the tag team championships haven't been utilised to their full potential… I feel like if they're not being defended, I don't think they're being used right. They're kinda just being thrown kind of under the rug. They're not being taken very seriously and I just feel like at some point they have to be taken seriously.
"This was such a big moment for the women's division to have these tag team titles instead of just having one championship. Now we have a tag division and we could utilise so many of the tag teams that we have even down in NXT, up on Raw and SmackDown, just something. It's just Bayley and Sasha, they're good, they're solid, we all love them, but let's try and build some other people."
