Women's Tag Team title match set for WWE Fastlane


SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair are set to team up again on the road to their title match at WrestleMania.

WWE has announced that Banks & Belair will challenge for Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler's Women's Tag Team titles at Fastlane on Sunday, March 21. The pay-per-view will stream live on the WWE Network and Peacock.

This is the first match that's been announced for Fastlane.

Jax & Baszler retained their titles against Banks & Belair at Elimination Chamber last month. The finish of that match was Jax pinning Banks after Banks was distracted by Carmella's sommelier Reginald. Reginald, who is infatuated with Banks in storyline, tried to give Banks a champagne bottle to use as a weapon, but Banks refused to use it. Jax then gave Banks a Samoan drop to get the win.

Women's Royal Rumble winner Belair officially declared on SmackDown last week that she's challenging for Banks' SmackDown Women's Championship at WrestleMania 37.

Jax & Baszler are two-time Women's Tag Team Champions. They regained the titles by defeating Charlotte Flair & Asuka on January's Royal Rumble pre-show. On NXT this week, Jax & Baszler retained against Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez after WWE authority figure Adam Pearce got involved in the match. Following a ref bump, Pearce brought a Raw referee out to the ring. Despite Kai not being the legal person, the Raw referee called for the bell when she passed out in Baszler's Kirifuda Clutch.

Naomi & Lana are also in line to get a Women's Tag Team title shot at some point.

A singles match between Belair and Baszler has been announced for this Friday's episode of SmackDown.
