The NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship is a professional wrestling women’s tag team championship created and promoted by the American promotion WWE, defended on their NXT brand division. The current champions are Dakota Kai and Raquel González, who are in their record second reign.

The championship was established on the March 10, 2021, episode of NXT. The team of Dakota Kai and Raquel González were crowned the inaugural champions due to winning the first-ever Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, after the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match they had originally received for their win ended in a controversial finish. At the time the title was introduced, NXT was regarded as WWE’s “third brand”; however, in September that same year, NXT was rebranded and reverted to its original function as WWE’s developmental territory.

History[edit]

In December 2018, the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship was established as the sole women’s tag team championship for WWE, shared across the Raw, SmackDown, and NXT brands.[1] On the March 3, 2021 episode of NXT, Dakota Kai and Raquel González, who had earned a title opportunity for winning the first-ever Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, faced WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler (whose home brand was Raw). After the referee had been knocked out during the match, WWE official Adam Pearce, who officiates for Raw and SmackDown, sent down a second referee to declare Kai had submitted to Baszler, although Kai was not the legal woman. This led to a backstage argument between Pearce and NXT General Manager William Regal.[2]

The following week on the March 10 episode, Regal introduced the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship to not have to deal with Raw and SmackDown’s politics any longer. Kai and González have named the inaugural champions due to their Women’s Dusty Classic win. Their reign would not last long, however, as that same night, they defended the titles against the runner ups of the tournament, Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart, who defeated Kai and González to win the championship.[3][4]

Belt design[edit]

The belt design of the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship is nearly identical to the men’s NXT Tag Team Championship, with a few exceptions. The straps are smaller for the women and they are white instead of black. Above the vertical NXT logo on the center plate says “Women’s Tag Team” instead of just “Tag Team.” For the customizable side plates, the default side plates have the vertical NXT logo instead of the WWE logo, which makes it only one of two NXT championships to have the NXT logo instead of the WWE logo for the default side plates, the other being the NXT North American Championship. The WWE logo is also missing from the very center of the NXT logo on the center plate.[3][4]

Reigns[edit]

As of April 4, 2022, there have been six reigns between five teams composed of 10 individual champions. The inaugural championship team was Dakota Kai and Raquel González. Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne) have the longest reign at 158 days, while the team of Kai and González have the shortest reign at 56 minutes (being named as first champions then losing the title later the same night). Candice LeRae is the oldest champion at 35 years old, while Gigi Dolin is the youngest, winning the title at 24.

The current champions are Dakota Kai and Raquel González, who are in their record second reign, both as a team and individually. They defeated Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne) at the Stand & Deliver on April 2, 2022, in Dallas, TX
