The WWE women’s tag team division is headed up by two of the most important women in the division. Jade Cargill and Bianca Belair are individual forces and an even more impressive as a duo. They are carrying the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship, and along with that, they are carrying the entire division. Looking at how things are unfolding, they are the right duo to help finally build momentum within that part of the roster.

Fans have long wanted to see more of the women’s tag team division. When the titles were first introduced, it was immediately clear that they were dead in the water. Bayley and Sasha Banks (now Mercedes Mone) were loved by the crowds, but Vince McMahon had no real plans of leveraging them or the titles. This eventually led to Banks and Naomi walking out of the promotion in 2022, setting off a major shift in women’s wrestling.

Including Belair and Cargill, there have been 26 reigns for the Women’s Tag Team Titles. In that entire time, no team has defended the titles more than four times. That includes matches on PLEs or weekly television. The majority of those teams were quickly split after losing the titles just months later. The ineptitude in booking was front and center, and the entire women’s division suffered.

After years of complaints, it seems like things are slowly heading in another direction. Cargill and Belair are champions that demand the spotlight whenever they are on air. Their presence has helped teams like the Unholy Union get back on television. Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark are enjoying a strong run as well. Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae were getting a bump as well before LeRae’s injury. Even Kayden Carter and Katana Chance are back on television to face off against Damage CTRL. There’s no way all these teams get television time without prominent champions standing at the top of the group.

Belair and Cargill demand attention and they demand adequate booking. WWE Creative would certainly hear it if they were booking in a lazy fashion, especially after the situation that led to Banks and Naomi walking out. WWE can not book to more Black women, especially two of their status, in a way that doesn’t matter. So that means the rest of the division gets a push outside of just the title picture. As we see today, more time is being dedicated to these groups, setting up what should lead to a pipeline of contenders for the champions.

Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill are the perfect women to hold the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship while the company looks to rebuild the division over time.
