A new title match has been made official for this month's Clash of Champions pay-per-view.
WWE announced today that Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax will defend their titles against The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan) at Clash of Champions. The Riott Squad became the number one contenders to Baszler & Jax's titles by defeating The IIconics (Peyton Royce & Billie Kay) on Raw two weeks ago. That number one contender's match also had a stipulation where the losing team had to split up.
On Raw last week, Baszler and Jax faced Riott & Morgan in separate two-on-one handicap matches. Morgan rolled up Baszler to get the win in the first match after Baszler was distracted by Jax mocking her offense and telling her she's seen Baszler do better. Jax laughed after her partner lost. Riott & Morgan vs. Jax then ended in a no contest when the match was interrupted by a message from RETRIBUTION.
Baszler & Jax won the Women's Tag Team titles by defeating Sasha Banks & Bayley at Payback. They also defeated Banks & Bayley in a rematch on SmackDown earlier this month.
Clash of Champions is taking place on Sunday, September 27. Here's the updated card for the PPV:
- WWE Champion Drew McIntyre defends against Randy Orton
- Universal Champion Roman Reigns defends against Jey Uso
- SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley defends against Nikki Cross
- Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax defend against The Riott Squad
