History has been made. WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube channel in which they show the full inaugural Women’s Tag Team Championship match from Elimination Chamber 2019. Sasha Banks and Bayley would go on to become the first champions in company history.
You can see the match in its entirety below:
As if to drive the point home that this was truly anybody’s game, five of the six teams had already entered the Chamber before anybody suffered elimination. The first to go were Naomi & Carmella, “The Fabulous Glow,” tossed by an opportunistic and inventive double stack by The IIconics. Nia Jax & Tamina, an obvious threat due to their strength and No. 6 draw, notched two eliminations — The IIconics and The Riott Squad — before Jax accidentally took herself out by charging through a pod when Bayley moved out of the way, leaving Tamina at the mercy of the rest of the field. They showed none; all four unloaded on their stronger opponent and all four covered her for the elimination.
That brought the proceedings down to — and here is where you might be thinking destiny came into play — the two teams who started the match: Sasha & Bayley and Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville, the SmackDown goddesses calling themselves Fire and Desire. They showed plenty of both, driving Bayley spine-first into the beam of the Chamber pod and putting the onus on Banks and her barely-cleared injured shoulder to carry the load. She did. A big slam from Mandy seemed to have Banks dead to rights, but The Boss miraculously kicked out. A Bank Statement on Deville lacked the torque to earn a tap out until Sasha used her foot to compensate and cranked back, forcing The Jersey Devil to cry Uncle. And something that seemed as though it would never arrive was suddenly there.
I remember this match and just how it awesome it was. However, it’s crazy to think where all of the combatants in this match are in today’s WWE. While none of them are teaming with each other anymore, it’s always cool to see just how far everyone has come in such a short time! This was truly a historical evening!
