Report: NXT Getting Their Own Women's Tag Team Titles

Another championship for the company?

It would appear that a new championship is on its way to NXT.

Dave Meltzer reported in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE is planning on giving NXT its own Women's Tag Team titles, though no time frame for doing so was given.

Presently, the existing WWE Women's Tag Team titles can be defended on any of the three brands, and were, in fact, defended on this past week's episode of NXT.

The match in which champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler defeated Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez ended controversially. Following a ref bump, WWE authority figure Adam Pearce brought out a Raw-brand referee as a replacement. The new ref called for the bell with Kai passed out in Baszler's Kirifuda Clutch, despite Kai not being the match's legal participant.

After the match, Pearce and NXT general manager William Regal were shown arguing. Regal stated later in the night that a big announcement was coming.

The existing WWE Women's Tag Team titles were introduced in 2019. A prior championship existed from 1983 to 1989, and were last held by The Glamour Girls.
