Shawn Michaels Says NXT Has Depth For Women's Tag Titles, Doesn't Know If They Are Needed

NXT General Manager William Regal is set to make two major announcements on Wednesday's NXT.

According to reports, one major announcement will center around the introduction of NXT Women's Tag Team Titles. Controversy arose on the March 3 episode of NXT when WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax defended their titles against Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez. The finish saw Baszler lock in the Karifuda clutch on Kai and a Raw official call for the bell despite Gonzalez being the legal woman.

Speaking to New York Post, NXT producer Shawn Michaels was asked if NXT Women's Tag Team Titles are needed to highlight the depth of the division.

"Is it needed? I don’t know if those things are ever needed. To your point, we certainly have the depth. I know it sometimes sounds a bit cliché, everyone knows NXT we have the absolute greatest, No. 1 women’s division on the planet. There’s not even another feasible argument to make. We have the most talented young ladies within NXT. Look I think it’s certainly something we can begin to think about or begin to talk about. I do believe the depth is there. Look every time you do that it could always be challenging. I think that’s something we enjoy here. I do know that from a creative standpoint we enjoy challenges. I know our talent does. But I would be comfortable saying I think we certainly have the depth for it. Those are all decisions that are all sort of above me at this point. I’d certainly back it," he said.

Elsewhere during the interview, Michaels discussed the possibility of NXT moving to Tuesday nights. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
