Match 7: Sasha Banks & Bayley (c) vs. Nia Jax & Tamina – Women’s Tag Team Championship

Background: Nia Jax & Tamina were granted a Women’s Tag Team Championship match despite losing in the six-team Elimination Chamber last month. The IIconics appeared on the kickoff show and staked their claim to be in the title picture after Fastlane.

Summary: Michael Cole mentioned how Sasha Banks & Bayley are undefeated as a tag team, despite the duo losing 15 televised matches together. One of the biggest moments came when Bayley dived through the ropes to take out her opponents. She then landed a hurricanrana on Jax and hooked her leg for the 1-2-3. Following the match, Jax & Tamina attacked the tag champs before Beth Phoenix, on commentary, stepped in. The Samoan duo attacked Phoenix and then turned their attention to Natalya when she tried to help her friend.

Verdict: The match itself was nothing special but the post-match attacks nicely set up a WrestleMania storyline. It looks like we’ll see Banks & Bayley vs. Jax & Tamina vs. Phoenix & Natalya vs. The IIconics on April 7. As for Banks & Bayley being referred to as “undefeated”… well, I guess all those defeats to The Riott Squad never happened.

Grade: C+
