Update On Women’s Tag Team Title Plans For WrestleMania 39 WWE

An update has emerged on plans for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 39, with the champions set to compete in a six-woman tag bout at the event.

While it was previously reported that WWE had plans for a women’s tag title bout at the Show of Shows, the champions have now been announced for a non-title bout.

On the March 6 edition of Raw, it was revealed that champions Becky Lynch & Lita will team with Trish Stratus to face off against Bayley, IYO SKY and Dakota Kai at WrestleMania 39.

While some speculated that this means there won’t be a Women’s Tag Team Championship bout at the April event, it has been reported that the gold will still be on the line in Los Angeles.

Per Dave Meltzer on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, whoever the champions will be come WrestleMania will defend the gold against Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler.

Commenting on plans, Meltzer said:

“They still have a tag title match, there’s gonna be two matches coming out of this program.

“Whoever are the champions will wrestle Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler, but they’re also doing the six-woman.

“I don’t know if Kai and Sky are gonna win the belts back or it’s gonna be Lita and Becky Lynch. But Rousey and Baszler are still getting the tag team title shot as has been planned all along.

“And likely winning them, unless Rousey’s injury doesn’t heal, which they are right now of the impression that she’s not gonna be 100% healed, but the impression is that she will be ready to do the match.”
