Titles change hands on RAW

This week’s episode of Monday Night RAW was the final show before Summerslam and WWE decided to have some titles change hands before the event on August 11th.

The IIconics defended their WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles against The Kabuki Warriors, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville, and Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross in an elimination match. The IIconics were the first ones to be eliminated, so new champions were a certainty.

Asuka tapped Mandy Rose out with the Asuka Lock and then it was down to The Kabuki Warriors and Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross. Towards the end of the match, Kairi Sane was the legal competitor and after she climbed up the top rope, she was thrown down by Nikki Cross.

Then Alexa Bliss hit the Twisted Bliss on Sane and Bliss & Cross won the match. They are now the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.

    We the WWE Women tag team championship needed a name to make that division relevant.

    Apparently according to the graphic last night, Asuka was replaced by Io Shirai.
    Well done WWE. All Japanese women obviously look the same to you.

    After the IIconics’ meltdown during commercial, I don’t see Sasha coming back anytime soon. But knowing WWE, they’ll leak something saying she’ll be back for the first show on Fox.
