It's clear that since WWE officials green lighted the decision to add more gold to the growing NXT Women's Division, the competition has most assuredly risen to the occasion. The addition of the NXT Women's Tag Team Titles has been an action that I wholeheartedly support. The execution in my opinion was well done and as a woman in wrestling and a huge fan of specifically tag team wrestling, I think it was the perfect move by WWE and speaks to the talent residing in the NXT Women's Division at this time. Since their inclusion there have been few title changes and the upcoming Great American Bash event could ultimately play host to the very next time the title changes hands.
This past episode of WWE NXT saw a huge opportunity in the form of a Women's Triple Threat Tag Team Match for the Number One Contender position for the NXT Women's Tag Team Titles. The NXT women's Division was definitely alive and well represented in this bout as WWE NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai the former inaugural NXT Women's Tag Team Champions squared off against two other teams. The team of Zoey Stark and former NXT Women's Champion Io Shirai and the former NXT Women's Tag Team Champions who beat Gonzlez and Kai, Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon. All women with credible claims on those shiny newer WWE belts.
But, as we all know, there can only be one winner. Only one team can win and become the new number one contender for the coveted NXT Women's Tag Team Titles. Blackheart and Moon certainly have unfinished business with the current NXT Women's Tag Team Champions, The Way's Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell. And on the other hand, Gonzalez and Kai have unfinished business with Blackheart and Moon who ended their inaugural reign as NXT Women's Tag Team Champions. And then again, Io Shirai has unfinished business with Gonzalez and Kai, with Gonzalez being the one woman who did what no other woman in NXT was able to do in the over 300 plus days - dethrone Io Shirai as the NXT Women's Champion.
As all these ladies are seemingly connected and interwoven with each other the heat was boiling over in this match. All six ladies pursuing gold, bragging rights, settling old score, and perhaps even some redemption in the eyes of the WWE Universe. As it would happen and the match unfolded live on USA Network, the WWE Universe would see an intense Triple Threat Tag Team match come to an end with a definitive pin fall resulting in a huge win for Zoey Stark and Io Shirai. A huge upset in the eyes of Shotzi Blackheart, Ember Moon, Dakota Kai, and Raquel Gonzalez as they were beat by the newest team in the Triple Threat.
Zoey Stark and Io Shirai will once again join forces as a wildly credible tag team with a major win under their proverbial belts. As the new number one contenders Stark and Shirai will head into the Great American Bash full speed ahead towards The Way's LeRae and Hartwell and their coveted NXT Women's Tag Team Titles. Which team do you think will come out of top in this championship bout at the Great American Bash? Zoey Stark and Io Shirai? Or Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell? Have we heard the last from Blackheart, Moon, Kai, and Gonzalez on this subject? Could we see new champions crowned for the NXT Women's Division? This will be a must see bout as four women clash for NXT Tag Team gold. The WWE NXT Women's Tag Team Titles will be on the line as Zoey Stark and Io Shirai challenge the champions Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell! Tune in live to The Great American Bash on July 6th to find out!
