Alexa Bliss & Asuka advance in WWE Women's Tag Team title tournament



Alexa Bliss and Asuka are headed to the next round of the WWE Women’s Tag Team title tournament.

On Monday’s Raw, Bliss and Asuka defeated Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H. to advance. The finish had Bliss knocking out Nikki as Asuka submitted Doudrop with an armbar.

With the win, Bliss and Asuka will now meet IYO SKY and Dakota Kai, who advanced last week by defeating Tamina and Dana Brooke. After Asuka and Alexa Bliss won their match tonight, they were confronted by Kai and SKY, as the two teams have been feuding in recent weeks.

On SmackDown this past Friday, Raquel Gonzalez and Aliyah defeated Xia Li and Shotzi to advance. They will meet the winners of a Natalya & Sonya Deville vs. Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark match that will take place on this Friday’s episode of SmackDown.

The winners of the tournament will be crowned the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. The titles have been vacant since May, when Sasha Banks and Naomi were stripped of the titles and suspended by the company after walking out of Raw.
