WWE to reschedule Baszler & Jax vs. Riott Squad Tag Team title match

Prior to tonight's Raw, WWE gave an update on the situation with the Women's Tag Team titles.

Women's Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax were supposed to defend their titles against Ruby Riott & Liv Morgan at Sunday's Clash of Champions pay-per-view, but that match didn't happen due to Baszler & Jax being pulled from the show. WWE posted a video tonight with Kayla Braxton announcing that Baszler & Jax will still defend their titles against Riott & Morgan once they're cleared to do so.

Dave Meltzer reported that Baszler & Jax did not test positive for COVID-19 but both were in contact with someone who did test positive so they will not be used for 14 days as long as they test negative.

On Twitter today, Jax responded to someone who asked if she's okay: "Girl....I could not be better I apologize that the announcement scared some, but all is great and healthy on my end & my tag partner’s end as well (not that I speak for her, but I kind of just did)."

Baszler & Jax won the Women's Tag Team titles by defeating Bayley & Sasha Banks at Payback last month. Riott & Morgan then became the number one contenders to the titles by defeating Peyton Royce & Billie Kay.
