A WWE Women's Tag Team title match has been added to the upcoming Clash of Champions pay-per-view.
WWE announced that current champions Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler will defend their titles against The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan) at the show on September 27. This comes after The Riott Squad defeated Baszler in a handicap match and then a match between the duo and Jax ended in a no contest on the September 7 episode of Raw.
The gold rush at WWE Clash of Champions will include the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles, as Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler put their titles on the line against The Riott Squad.
Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan risked their partnership to earn the championship opportunity, defeating The IIconics in a match where winners earned a crack at the champions, and the losing team had to split up. The Riott Squad pulled off the win, setting the stage for their showdown with the champions.
Jax & Baszler’s seeming inability to get on the same page may be The Riott Squad’s key to victory at Clash of Champions. The titleholders’ bickering already cost Baszler a 2-on-1 Handicap Match against Riott & Morgan. Will they be able to get it together when the titles are on the line?
Below is the updated card for Clash of Champions on September 27:
* WWE Championship: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton
* WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso
* SmackDown Women's Championship: Bayley (c) vs. Nikki Cross
* WWE Women's Tag Team Championship: Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler (c) vs. Riott Squad (Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan)
