WWE Raw: Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H crowned Women’s Tag Team Champions

Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H

Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H pulled off a sensational win on Monday Night Raw to dethrone Natalya and Tamina as Women's Tag Team champions.

A.S.H took a pummelling from both her opponents in what initially looked to be an easy win for the champs.

But some rediscovered Almost Superhero style strength from the plucky Scot ended in Natalya being pinned and the title changing hands.

Nikki A.S.H certainly has what it takes to be a tag team champion. Prior to her win with Ripley, she had won the title twice with former partner Alexa Bliss. But this is a first-time achievement for The Nightmare and one that she could hardly believe.

The match looked to be over in seconds as Natalya was a moment away from pinning A.S.H to the cover. Ripley slid into the ring with a quick rescue, attracting the attention of Tamina, who hurled The Nightmare straight over the ropes.

The injured Ripley lay outside the ring in visibly pain, leaving her partner in the ring to be mercilessly beaten by the champions, who were enjoying playing with their prey before attempting the pin.

However, Tamina turned down the chance to end the match after executing a Samoan Drop on A.S.H. Instead, attempting to seek revenge on The Almost Superhero after losing to her in a singles match last week.

Ripley and Tamina then started to brawl outside the ring, distracting Natalya long enough for A.S.H to turn the tables and pin her opponent with the Small Package manoeuvre.

The Nightmare was in awe of her partner – rushing into the ring and scooping up the Scot to celebrate their new title.
