WWE announces Women's Tag Team titles coming next year

A long-requested championship is coming to WWE in 2019.

During tonight’s Raw, Vince McMahon (who was dressed as Santa Claus) gave out a number of gifts, with one being the women’s tag team titles. Details were vague, as McMahon simply said they would be introduced in the new year.

There had been hints that WWE were planning on adding the set of titles eventually. They were mentioned explicitly by Sasha Banks and Bayley several weeks ago during an open forum held by Alexa Bliss. WWE has also planted signs in the crowd requesting the titles.

This isn’t the first time the WWE has had women’s tag team titles. The first titles were introduced in 1983, with Velvet McIntyre and Princess Victoria becoming the inaugural champions. The belts were more famously held by The Glamour Girls (Lelani Kai & Judy Martin) and the Jumping Bomb Angels (Noriyo Tateno & Itzuki Yamazaki), who feuded over the titles. The belts were dropped by the WWE in 1989.
