As of this writing, Chelsea Green and Piper Niven continue their stranglehold over the WWE women’s tag team division as the current holders of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Unfortunately, Green and Niven are the latest team to just be thrown together. What started out as Green and Sonya Deville became Green and Niven due to an injury sustained by Deville.
While there may not be many legitimate tag teams in the women’s division, there are a couple who are not just two thrown-together singles wrestlers. It’s time that WWE put the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships on an actual team, and any of these three teams could AND should very well be the next to win the titles.
3. Katana Chance and Kayden Carter
First on the list, we have the “Life of the Party.” Consisting of Katana Chance and Kayden Carter, they are former WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. In August of 2022, Chance and Carter first won the WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships in a four-way tag team match.
They would go on to have a nice and lengthy run with the championships, holding them for a historic 186 days. Chance and Carter are the definition of a tag team. They are not just two singles stars who are thrown together to win some gold. They work together terrifically and it’s obvious to see.
Putting the tag team championships on Chance and Carter could make it mean something again. Chance and Carter more than deserve a nice and lengthy reign (similar to the one they had on NXT), on the main roster. It’s time for the “Life of the Party” to continue to take over the WWE.
2. Shotzi and Scarlett
This one could honestly be A LOT of fun. Despite never really teaming up inside of a WWE ring, Shotzi and Scarlett are a team made in heaven. From social media posts to running their own ghost investigation show on YouTube, it’s clear to see how close Shotzi and Scarlett truly are.
Scarlett, who has really only been shown as Karrion Kross’s manager in the WWE, is a very good in-ring talent as well. That is important and should not be forgotten. Shotzi on the other hand is already an established talent inside a WWE ring. Feuding with the likes of Bayley and Ronda Rousey, Shotzi has already shown how good she truly is.
This is a bit of a random one, but it could be A LOT of fun if done correctly. It’s clear to see that they are both a fan of darker, and more horror types of genres, so including that into their team could very well make it more fun, and make it mesh much better.
1. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn
This is the most likely, and in all honestly, probably the best choice to lead the women’s tag team division to new heights. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn, once bitter enemies, formed a just downright incredible tag team known collectively as “The Unholy Union,” and they are no strangers to gold.
Fyre made her NXT debut at NXT TakeOver 36 back in August of 2021. Prior to Dawn arriving in NXT, Fyre had quite the career herself, even winning the Dusty Rhodes Classic with Iyo Sky in 2022. Fyre had her eyes set on NXT gold but ultimately lost when Isla Dawn screwed her in a match.
Fans didn’t know what would become of the two. From amazing rivals, to even better friends, it’s been a roller coaster. The “Unholy Union” won the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships back at Stand and Deliver this year in April. Unfortunately, they would lose them in June on Smackdown in a unification match with Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler.
This was a very questionable booking decision, but there’s no changing it now. The “Unholy Union” more than deserves to represent the WWE women’s tag team division on the top of the mountain. Truthfully, they should have been the team to win in their match with Rousey and Baszler and unify the tag team titles then.
Overall, any of these three teams could AND should win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships sooner than later. Green and Niven are solid wrestlers, but they are not an authentic tag team. They don’t mesh that well, and it’s time to get that real team feel back.
