Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott

There aren’t enough tag teams in WWE, especially babyface tag teams. The Women’s Tag Titles, still held by Sasha Banks and Bayley, will be defended at Payback on Sunday, and there’s a prevailing belief that this is where it all comes unraveled for BaySha. Banks lost the Raw Women’s Title at SummerSlam and then lost a second match to Asuka on Raw; there’s SO much friction between Bayley and Banks now.

Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax might win the titles together despite not being on the same page, but if they don’t, the reunited tag team of Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott would be great babyface favorites to take the title. Or – and maybe this is better from a storytelling perspective – Morgan and Riott are the ones to beat Baszler and Jax in a month or two.

Either way, Morgan and Riott need to be a bigger part of Monday nights and should hold those tag titles sooner rather than later.

Keith Lee

Last but certainly not least, the debuting Keith Lee is in need of a big push. He will face Randy Orton at Payback within a week of his Raw debut, meaning he’s already getting a Pay Per View match with the biggest heel in WWE and one of the company’s biggest legends of the modern era.

Yeah, Lee is ticketed for big things as one of Raw’s top babyfaces. With the way he lost the NXT Title at TakeOver 30, having already relinquished the North American Title shortly after his double-championship coronation, he needs to be a main event player on Raw without any caveats.

Lee is one of the best all-around wrestlers in the world in terms of promos and in-ring ability. He should win and create a Triple Threat with Orton and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre for Clash of Champions.
