After the controversial WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match last week that saw Adam Pearce interfere and give Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax a win over Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai, NXT General Manager William Regal decided a shake-up was needed.

As such, Regal introduced NXT Tag Team Championships to the developmental brand. Regal awarded them to the Dusty Rhodes Women’s Tag Team Classic winners, Kai & Gonzalez. The pair may have come up short against the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, but Regal clearly didn’t find the loss fair. This is the first NXT belt for both women.

As for challengers, Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart will get the first crack at the new title tonight.
