Women's tag champs to be decided at WWE Elimination Chamber


The first WWE Women’s tag team champions of the modern era will be decided inside the Elimination Chamber next month.

The announcement was made during Alexa Bliss’ talk show segment, A Moment of Bliss, tonight on Raw. Three Raw teams and three SmackDown teams will compete inside the Elimination Chamber, with the winners becoming the first champions.

The championships have been mentioned on and off for the last couple of months on WWE television. Sasha Banks and Bayley brought up the idea of the titles during an open forum that was hosted by Alexa Bliss. On the Christmas Eve edition of Raw, Vince McMahon said that the titles would be coming in 2019.

While these aren’t the first set of women’s tag team titles in the WWE, they would be the first in almost 30 years. The first champions, Velvet McIntyre and Princess Victoria, carried the NWA Women’s tag team titles over to the WWE in 1983. The titles would be more famously traded between the Jumping Bomb Angels and the Glamour Girls before they were deactivated in early 1989.

Elimination Chamber will take place on February 17, 2019 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
