Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs Asuka and Lana announced for the Women’s Tag Team Title at WWE TLC. The two teams have faced each twice in two weeks now.
For all the talk about Lana being buried this is possibly the most exciting period of her wrestling career. There were talks she was being buried because of her husband’s promo over at AEW. Instead, she has had the most success she’s ever had.
She won a battle royal to earn the right to face Asuka. She then won her place in the RAW Women’s Team at Survivor Series and came out of it as the sole survivor. She has now teamed up with Asuka and has now found herself in another title match. This time for the Women’s Tag Team titles.

This is brilliant booking that could bring an end to some storylines and start new ones.
By making Shayna and Nia their tag team champions, the WWE have left their singles division barren leaving Asuka without credible opponents to face. They have also made them look so dominating that it is hard to believe that any other team could legitimately beat them.
Asuka’s presence on the team gives them the credibility for the win. This will free up Shayna and Nia as singles competitor. Also, a defeat would serve as comeuppance for the latter who has tortured Lana for several weeks before.
They could then use Lana to drop the titles to an actual tag team without hurting anyone involved.
