Business has been picking up for the WWE women’s tag team division as of late and last week on Raw it was Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler who won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles in a fatal four way match. Baszler & Rousey seem primed to dominate the women’s tag team division and it seems that Rousey had been pushing for their partnership for a while.
Shayna Baszler recently talked about teaming with Ronda Rousey on the Cheap Heat podcast and she noted that The Baddest Woman on the Planet demanded that WWE put them together as a team.
“Ronda is Ronda, right. She’s been main title, she main-evented WrestleMania. She still gets one of the loudest pops when we walk out. This was something she demanded. We’d been asking for it forever, but she finally put her foot down and went to the office and said, ‘Listen, we’ve been asking for this forever. You keep telling us, ‘After, after, after this [and] this.’ I honestly don’t know if she hadn’t done that, if they ever would have got to it. I wasn’t in a position yet to be elevated to a Ronda level, so the fact that Ronda said, ‘No, stop. I’ve done this. I want to do this because this is why I started wrestling.’ So I think that’s huge. She could be main-eventing SummerSlam. She doesn’t have to be where she is, which is elevating these titles.”
Obviously things seem to be going well for Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler right now, but it was also recently reported that the idea of Rousey & Baszler feuding with one another has also been discussed, and you can get more on that here.
