Current WWE Tag Team Have Discussed Potential Story For Feud Between Them WWE

The WWE and NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships were unified on this week’s SmackDown show, when Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler defeated Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn to unify the titles.

Ronda and Shayna won the titles on the May 29 episode of WWE Raw, winning the titles in a four-way match.

It has been reported since that WWE is hoping to eventually have Ronda and Shayna break up and feud after winning the titles, and the pair appear to be very on board with that idea.

Speaking to GSM of WrestleRant Radio, Shayna said that her and Ronda have discussed a potential story that would see the two of them fight, potentially for a title.

She said:

“I mean, we’ve talked about — so in Combat Sports, it’s kind of this rule in MMA or amateur wrestling, Jujitsu, whatever — it’s kind of a thing where if I have the title, and my teammate works their way up through tournament and takes out everyone and earns their spot, as my friend, it would be disrespectful for me to deny them that or to refuse to give them that opportunity.

“It’s almost offensive if the person bows out like, ‘Oh, she’s my teammate. I’m not gonna be –‘ like, ‘Wait, you don’t think I have I can defend against you, what’s up?’

“We have talked about how that story hasn’t really been told in a pro wrestling sense. It’s always like someone angry turning, whatever. A miscue, that’s whatever it is, but the story of how combat sports is, I think there’s an opportunity and untouched story along that path as well.

“All that being said, you know, we have these (the Women’s Tag Titles) to defend. If that comes along, you know, that comes along. It’s not like — I don’t know, we’ll see what happens.

“Like I said, we don’t want to be stuck in that mode where we have these so we’re not looking at the singles titles anymore. So we’ll see what happens.”
