The two teams fought each other at Wrestlemania with the champions retaining the titles.
It will be interesting to see who takes the title with them or will the match end with a screwy finish allowing it to be added to the Wrestlemania backlash card.
Jax and Baszler have held the title or been in the title picture for quite some time now. Will the WWE crown new champions next week or will the reigning champions triumph again? We’ll have to wait and find out next week.
