NXT's Nox & Blackheart to challenge for Women's Tag Team titles


For the second time since they were introduced, the WWE Women's Tag Team titles are set to be defended in NXT.

WWE has announced that Tegan Nox & Shotzi Blackheart will challenge for the Women's Tag Team titles on NXT next Wednesday. Bayley & Sasha Banks currently hold the titles and will defend them against Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross and The IIconics in a triple threat match at Sunday's Backlash pay-per-view.

Bayley & Banks won the titles from Bliss & Cross on SmackDown last Friday.

The Women's Tag Team titles can be defended across all three of WWE's top brands. Nox was also part of the first Women's Tag Team title match in NXT, which took place in October. Asuka & Kairi Sane were champions then and retained their titles against Nox & Dakota Kai.

Nox & Blackheart teamed with Mia Yim against Kai, Raquel Gonzalez & Candice LeRae at NXT TakeOver: In Your House this past Sunday. Nox pinned Kai to get the win.

This is the second Tag Team title match that's been announced for next week's NXT. Breezango will challenge Imperium for the NXT Tag Team titles on the episode.
