Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose, Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan, Natalya and Tamina, and Lana and Naomi will face off in a tag team turmoil match on Night 1 of WrestleMania 37. The winner of that match books a ticket for a date with the champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.

Although the WWE Women’s tag team division looks very unimpressive, WWE have done a good job by adding the champions to the card. It would’ve been unusual to see someone as talented as Shayna Baszler miss out on WrestleMania. As for Nia Jax, she’s lucky to make the card purely based on her dalliance with Reginald, which is moderately funny.

Overcoming three other teams and then facing the champions within two nights will be a tough job. Each team will have to dig deep to find the energy to put away two of the most dominant women on the main roster.

The champions have beaten Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose a significant amount of times, and Lana and Naomi are too weak of a team to warrant a title shot. Although Lana beating Nia would be a good way of their rivalry coming full circle, putting the belt on them would be a bad idea.

Favourites to win the titles at WrestleMania

As of now, the champions are the favourites to walk out of WrestleMania with their gold. Jax and Baszler may not be the most entertaining duo, but they certainly look like dominant champions. Despite being an odd pairing, they’re the only team who’ve looked like a genuine tag team.

If not for the champions, Natalya and Tamina are the favourites to win the titles. On Talking Smack, Paul Heyman fired up Natalya, talking about how she needs to stop ‘b-tching and complaining’. He claimed her father and grandfather would be disappointed by seeing her not taking an opportunity for herself.

Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan have teamed up since they debuted together in 2018, but they are yet to hold tag team gold. They are the dark horses to win the gold at the Show of Shows, and it would be a sweet victory since they’ve never tasted genuine success in WWE.
