Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler Win WWE Women's Tag Team Championship On Raw

We have new WWE Women's Tag Team Champions as the dangerous duo of Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler won the titles this week.

On this Monday's "WWE Raw," a Fatal 4-Way Tag Team match was held to crown new women's tag team champions. In the end, Rousey and Baszler, who returned to television only two weeks ago after last wrestling at WrestleMania 39, prevailed. Following a late surge from Shotzi, Raquel Rodriguez's newest tag partner, Baszler managed to distract the ballsy badass just long enough. "The Baddest Woman On The Planet" proceeded to catch her in an armbar, causing Shotzi to tap out immediately.

With the victory, Baszler joined Asuka as the only other three-time WWE Women's Tag Team Champion. Her previous two title wins came alongside her former tag team partner Nia Jax. Rousey, meanwhile, captured championship gold for the first time since dropping the "SmackDown" Women's Championship to Charlotte Flair last October. 

Baszler and Rousey's victory also meant that the WWE Women's Tag Team titles have changed hands on three occasions in 2023. The first title change took place on the February 27 "WWE Raw" where Becky Lynch and Lita ended Damage CTRL's 114-day title reign. Thereafter, Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez captured the titles by defeating Lynch and Trish Stratus, who filled in for an injured Lita and then proceeded to turn on Lynch. 

Unfortunately, Morgan and Rodriguez's reign ended just as soon as it began after Morgan suffered a shoulder injury, forcing the champions to vacate their titles.
