– Billie Kay of The IIconics took to Twitter after last night’s SmackDown and issued a warning to new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Bayley after their big main event title win over Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross.
“Don’t get too comfortable with those titles ladies!! We still have our eyes on joining the x2 time champs party [eyes emoji] [trophy emoji],” Kay wrote.
