That’s one of the important parts. Titles are one of the most important parts of a wrestling show as they are about as easy of a concept as you can have for any fan. The best wrestlers around have a shiny belt and other wrestlers want to take them away. That is something you are going to see in wrestling on a pretty regular basis and it was the case again this week.

During this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, the team of Rhea Ripley and Nikki Ash won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles from Natalya and Tamina. This marks the first title reign for Ripley and the third for Ash, whose previous two title reigns both came with Alexa Bliss. Prior to the match, Ripley and Ash dedicated the match to children suffering from pancreatic cancer.

History has been made. Check out the title change and how the new champs work together:

Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. lead the charge for victory over cancer: Raw, Sept. 20, 2021

Natalya & Tamina vs. Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. – WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship: Raw, Sept. 20, 2021

Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. reflect after an emotional victory: Raw Exclusive, Sept. 20, 2021

Opinion: This was a title change that was fairly long overdue as Tamina and Natalya had not defended the titles on television since May. It is fairly clear that WWE has not exactly had much for them to do with the titles so moving things around is one of the right moves to make. The titles have never had the strongest in WWE and while I’m not sure this is going to save them, it should be an upgrade.
