The Riott Squad would make a massive statement to the entire WWE Women’s tag team division once they dethrone the current champs.
If proving to themselves that they are capable isn’t enough, The Riott Squad defeating Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles will send a direct statement to the entire Women’s Division. Earning gold in WWE signifies that you have made it to the top of the totem pole, and this is a feat that wrestlers of all tenures sought after.
Being crowned the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions would let the entire division know that Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott are the women to beat, even if the current number of women’s tag teams in the WWE seems to be dwindling in the wind.
Being awarded the WWE Women’s Tag Team titles after defeating such eminent forces like Baszler, who is a two-time NXT Women’s Champion, and Jax, who is a former Raw Women’s Champion, screams to the locker room that The Riott Squad is back and that they have come to conquer all. This would be the perfect push for the duo and a superb way to consummate the shift for the new era that is occurring within the WWE. This era can be seen as the darker which includes the introduction of RETRIBUTION, a faction that has been wreaking havoc across all of WWE late.
The Riott Squad joining forces with Retribution not only makes sense but can help to ensure the longevity of their title run within the WWE (potentially one that outlasts The Kabuki Warriors). This would definitely be a kill or be killed moment for The Riott Squad, as RETRIBUTION has made it very clear that they are against all wrestlers on the roster, and the WWE Universe has seen just how destructive RETRIBUTION can be. Joining forces with this malicious group can be seen as cowardly by the roster, but if it means remaining at the top of the mountain, why not?
The Riott Squad deserves to become the next WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. The Riott Squad has always been a genuine tag team, and the matching tattoos that the trio got exhibits this fact (check out Liv’s Instagram). The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions deserves to be held by a team who has always been a team since the very beginning, while winning the belts will prove to Morgan and Riott that all of their hardwork and dedication is finally paying off.
It will not be easy earning the gold, but The Riott Squad is up for the challenge, and come this Sunday at Clash of Champions, The Riott Squad will come out the victor as Baszler and Jax continue to clash with one another.
