Women's Tag Team title match set for WWE Raw


The Women's Tag Team title match that was originally scheduled for Clash of Champions has been rebooked for tonight's episode of Raw.

WWE has announced that Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax will defend their titles against Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan on Raw tonight. The match was supposed to take place at Clash of Champions on September 27 but was pulled from the card. WWE announced that Baszler & Jax weren't cleared to compete.

Dave Meltzer reported last week that Baszler & Jax did not test positive for COVID-19 but both were in contact with someone who did test positive.

Jax tweeted last night that she and Baszler would be returning on Raw: "Guess who is going to be on #RAW tomorrow night, kicking some ASH, retaining some titles, with a fresh weave and looking DAMN GOOD! I’ll give you a hint...NOT my tag partner. I mean, she will be there, but she won’t have a fresh weave."

Baszler & Jax became the Women's Tag Team Champions by defeating Bayley & Sasha Banks at Payback this August. Riott & Morgan were set up as their Clash of Champions challengers by defeating Peyton Royce & Billie Kay in a number one contender's match. 

Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke defeated Natalya & Lana on Raw last week and did an interview later in the show saying they're coming for the Women's Tag Team titles after Riott & Morgan get their title shot.

A six-man tag match with Drew McIntyre & The Street Profits facing Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode has also been announced for tonight's Raw. Plus, WWE is hyping that Kevin Owens has invited Bray Wyatt to Raw tonight to appear on a KO Show segment. Owens will face The Fiend on SmackDown this Friday.
