Naomi and Sasha Banks are reportedly scheduled to challenge WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Carmella and Queen Zelina Vega at WrestleMania 38.
As noted, Friday’s SmackDown saw Banks make her return to the ring with a win over Shotzi, while Naomi was on commentary. After the match, Naomi hit the ring to celebrate with Banks and announce that they will be the next WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. Banks looked at Naomi a bit surprised, but approved of the idea. They celebrated again to Naomi’s music to end the segment.
This SmackDown angle led to speculation on Naomi and Banks challenging Carmella and Vega at WrestleMania. Word now, via PWInsider, is that this match is currently planned for WrestleMania 38. There had been some speculation on WWE possibly going with a Fatal 4 Way for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles, as a way to get other wrestlers on the card, but word as of now is that this will be a standard tag team bout.
