This year’s Elimination Chamber will see the inaugural WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions crowned.
Looking ahead at this monumental event, who do I think will be eliminated first, and who will be crowned the first ever champions? Let’s find out.
6. Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville
The pairing of Rose and Deville has been underwhelming ever since Paige retired in April 2018. The creative team have had no plans for them, but the duo are talented. Rose has a background in bodybuilding and Deville has previously competed in mixed martial arts. Are the Women’s Tag Team Championships the opportunity they’ve been waiting for? Rose has been feuding with Naomi since late 2018 so could this make for a good rivalry. Having Naomi and Carmella face off against Rose and Deville? However, at this point, I think there are more developed wrestlers that I think will come out on top.
5. The Riott Squad (Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan)
Will Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan be able to stand on their own without their leader, Ruby Riott? I don’t think they will. While Ruby Riott is off facing Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women’s Champion, we finally get to see what the duo is made of. Usually hidden behind their leader, it’s time to finally see what they’re made of in the chamber.
4. The Iiconics
The IIconics have certainly been one tag team to watch and I wouldn’t be surprised if they did well in the match. Now with the Bella Twins out of the picture, could WWE use the duo of Kay and Royce as a replacement? They haven’t been given much spotlight since their debut, but they do have one accolade to their name which is the NXT Year-End Award where they won the Breakout of the Year in 2016. Since then they’ve received no praise – could this be their time to win and gain recognition?
3. Naomi and Carmella
A surprising pairing but one that could work. Both women have athleticism on their side and with several accolades backing them. Naomi, who is a two-time Smackdown Women’s Champion and the winner of the inaugural WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal in 2018. Meanwhile, Carmella has had success at holding the SmackDown Women’s Championship previously, winning the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank in 2017 and winning the Mixed Match Challenge in 2018. Both women seem to do well in winning inaugural titles so could this be another one for them both to claim?
2. Nia Jax and Tamina
Finally, Tamina might have a chance at title gold. Prior to being partnered with the former Raw Women’s Champion, she has been floating around working with different talent or sidelined with injuries. If it wasn’t for the team of Banks and Bayley, I would have said these two were arguably the favourites to win, especially after the spotlight being on Nia Jax at the Royal Rumble. If they don’t this time around, I would like to see them feud with the winners.
1. Sasha Banks and Bayley
The talented duo of Sasha Banks and Bayley are most likely to walk out of the PPV as the new champions, even with the disadvantage of entering the Chamber first. My bet is that Banks and Bayley will win and will lead the division going forward. Both of them have had their own success, with them both being former NXT and Raw Women’s Champions. The creative team seem to have had no plans for Bayley for quite some time so it makes sense to partner her up with The Boss, and for them to walk out as champions.
