Alexa Bliss and Asuka advanced to the next round of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament.
On Monday’s WWE Raw, live from Washington, DC, Bliss and Asuka defeated Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H. to advance. The finish saw Bliss knocking out Nikki A.S.H, as Asuka submitted Doudrop with an armbar.
With the win, Bliss and Asuka will now go onto face IYO SKY and Dakota Kai, who advanced last week when they defeating Tamina and Dana Brooke. Following their victory, Asuka and Bliss were confronted by Kai and SKY.
Over on SmackDown last Friday, Raquel Gonzalez and Aliyah defeated Xia Li and Shotzi to advance. They will face the winners of the Natalya and Sonya Deville vs. Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark, which will take place on this Friday’s SmackDown.
The winners of the tournament will be crowned the new Women’s Tag Team Champions. The titles were vacated this past May, after Sasha Banks and Naomi were stripped of the titles and suspended by the company after walking out of Raw due to feeling lack of respect and creative differences.
