WWE has announced that Charlotte Flair and Asuka will defend the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at WWE Royal Rumble. The champions will defend the gold against the team they won the titles from, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Here is the official preview of the match, courtesy of WWE.com:
“At Royal Rumble, WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Charlotte Flair & Asuka will battle Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax in a rematch for the illustrious titles. Considering the individual issues currently plaguing all four Superstars, it is unclear which team will emerge victorious.
At one time, it seemed almost inconceivable that there was any tandem that could unseat the dominant combination of Baszler & Nia. That all changed at WWE TLC when Raw Women’s Champion Asuka revealed Charlotte Flair as her surprise partner to lay claim to the gold.
Since their huge defeat, there has been more than a few traces of dissension between Shayna & Nia, centered around their mutual desire to be the one to emerge victorious in this year’s Royal Rumble Match and earn the right to main event WrestleMania.
Meanwhile, although Flair and Asuka’s partnership seems much more solid than their imminent challengers, they both will head into Royal Rumble with their own distractions. The Queen has been recently at odds with Lacey Evans over The Lady’s involvement with Charlotte’s father, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair. And The Empress of Tomorrow has recently tangled with the darker side of Alexa Bliss, who handed the champion a shocking non-title loss.
