5 Female Duos Who Should Win The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships (& 5 Who Shouldn’t)

The WWE Women's Tag Team Championships are young title belts. In 2012, WWE posted an article discussing why the old women's tag titles, active from 1983-1989, should be reintroduced, with the Bella Twins expressing a desire for Divas Tag Team Championships in 2014.

Odd booking has hurt the titles' credibility, though there is still time to establish the belts as worthy accomplishments. Here are five female duos who should win the gold - and five who shouldn't.

10 Should: Sasha Banks and Bayley

Sasha Banks and Bayley were the inaugural Women's Tag Team Champions, capturing the belts at Elimination Chamber 2019. In a controversial move that saw The Boss nearly quit WWE, the Boss 'n' Hug Connection dropped the titles to the IIconics at WrestleMania 35, ending what was allegedly promised as a lengthy reign.

Now that Bayley has turned heel, it would be the perfect time to capitalize on the momentum and re-insert the pair into the tag-team title picture. Banks already established herself as a villain after returning from hiatus and it would be a never before seen treat for fans to have both Superstars as a villainous duo.

9 Shouldn't: Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are arguably the two biggest names in WWE's women's division. Lynch is currently Raw Women's Champion and Charlotte has held every available championship on the roster. They do not need to add Women's Tag Team Champions to their already impressive resume... yet.

Though a program between heel Banks and Bayley vs. reluctant babyfaces Lynch and Flair would be a great way to incorporate all NXT Four Horsewomen into a story, The Man and The Queen have other narratives to pursue first.

8 Should: The Kabuki Warriors

Asuka and Kairi Sane are both incredible athletes who seem to have been paired together as a tag-team purely because WWE doesn't know what to do with them. Asuka was once a dominant force in the division, with an undefeated streak of 917 days and a historic reign with the NXT Women's Championship. The Pirate Princess is also a former NXT Women's Champion, as well as the winner of the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament.

Both Superstars are talented enough to elevate the tag titles and put on incredible matches. Given the current status of the Women's Tag Team Championships, it seems the belts need this tag team as much as Sane and Asuka need the belts.

7 Shouldn't: The IIconics

Billie Kay and Peyton Royce won the Women's Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania 35, arguably a lot earlier than they should have. Both Australian athletes are talented workers but did little to elevate the belts, which should have stayed on Banks and Bayley far longer.

The IIconics dropped the titles to Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross early in August and have since faded from the title picture. Both the belts and Kay and Royce need to have their reputations built back up again before they challenge the current champions once more.

6 Should: Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler

Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler are both former UFC stars who have made big names for themselves in the wrestling industry. Rousey is a former Raw Women's Champion with unfinished business with current champion Becky Lynch and Baszler is a two-time NXT Women's Champion, the first woman to hold the belt more than once.

Rousey and Baszler would be a pair of unstoppable badasses. A lengthy run with the Women's Tag Team Championships would skyrocket the credibility of the belts whilst introducing a new and interesting narrative to the women's division.

5 Shouldn't: Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose

There aren't many tag-teams in the women's division and the majority of the current tag-teams haven't been booked as worthy title contenders. Former Absolution members Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose are proof of this.

Despite being given a slight push recently, Rose and Deville are still mid-carders who aren't ready for the belts just yet - though there is nothing to suggest a championship reign in the future is off the table.

4 Should: Naomi and Carmella

Naomi and Carmella are both former SmackDown Women's Champions who have found themselves lost in the shuffle. The Princess of Staten Island has been paired with R-Truth in comedic skits for the 24/7 Championship and Naomi was almost teased as Asuka's new tag-team partner before Paige introduced the Kabuki Warriors.

Naomi's high-flying arsenal would compliment Carmella's presence on the mic. Given the right booking, a championship reign could be just what both Superstars need to elevate their careers.

3 Shouldn't: Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan

Like Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose, the former Riott Squad members are not credible enough contenders for championship gold at the moment. Little has been heard from Sarah Logan, though Liv Morgan has hinted at a return to the ring with a fresh look and new attitude.

If this is the case then keeping Morgan away from Logan and letting her find her footing as a singles competitor is the logical way forward.

2 Should: Natalya and Trish Stratus

This is a long-shot considering Trish Stratus is mostly retired, though if the Hall of Famer ever does lace up her boots again then a championship reign with fellow Canadian and real-life friend Natalya should be on the cards.

Stratus has already returned from retirement for a match against Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam 2019 and Natalya's character needs a new direction. A title run alongside a Superstar as decorated as Stratus would be a nice addition to the Queen of Harts' legacy.

1 Shouldn't: Nia Jax and Tamina

Nia Jax and Tamina, like Asuka and Kairi Sane, seem to have been haphazardly thrown together as a tag-team due to a lack of direction on WWE Creative's behalf. Jax is currently inactive due to injury, and when she returns to the ring it should be as the unconquerable monster she used to be.

Jax and Tamina work well together but both lack crucial mic skills and are limited in the ring due to their moveset. The Irresistible Force should return as a singles competitor, dominating the locker room once more.
