WWE must bring back mixed tag team matches

Whilst WWE continues to be keen on referring back to past techniques in order to connect with its fans, there is one match type which the company is yet to bring back fully.

The mixed tag team match was a style of bout which enabled female stars of professional wrestling such as Chyna, Trish Stratus and Lita, to work alongside the male wrestlers within a match.

Given the prominence of female wrestlers during this era, this type of match which was not classed as hugely historic. That's is why it should be brought back within the WWE today.

Women's Division 

Were the company to enable its female superstars this form of prominence today, it would go a long way towards giving the Women's Division the focus the talent within it deserves.

As mixed tag team matches can often be forgotten about, the teams which are formed must make sense within the current roster.

With this in mind, Vince McMahon and his creative team should look into pairing up talent such as NXT stars, wrestlers who are in relationships or superstars who are from the same country.

Both the company and its devoted fans are well aware of the vast amount of talent across the WWE roster, meaning there would be a huge choice of wrestlers to organise into teams.

Introducing a Mixed Tag Team Championship Title too, would reiterate the importance of this style of match and ultimately provide a platform for many of the current mid-card WWE wrestlers.

WWE could, for instance, create an Irish team made up of Sheamus and Becky Lynch, both of whom are not currently receiving a particularly large amount of focus or are involved in a worthwhile angle.

In addition, the company has plenty of choice should they consider producing an NXT mixed tag team, with names such as Kevin Owens, Sasha Banks, Sami Zayn and Charlotte all seeming likely options.

Whilst this technique would undoubtedly help the Women's Division of the company, it would also go far in helping the male wrestlers on the roster who don't, at present, have any real of chance of competing for another WWE Title.

The McMahon's

A further reason why now would be the ideal time for the company to bring back this type of match is because of Shane McMahon's recent involvement with the company.

To consolidate the position of the McMahon family within WWE, both Shane and his sister Stephanie could form a mixed tag team and compete for the Mixed Tag Team Championship Title.

Whilst their inclusion may be less often than other mixed tag teams on the roster, having them involved in a tournament or something similar would nonetheless make the competition even more worthwhile.

Ultimately, the reasons why WWE should bring back mixed tag team contests certainly outweigh the reasons not to and there has been no better time than now to do so.
