First Team Advances In Women’s Tag Title Tournament On 8/8 WWE RAW

The first team has advanced in the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament, with Dakota Kai and IYO SKY moving on in the tournament.

Previously, WWE stripped Naomi and Sasha Banks of the titles after they walked out of the May 16 episode of RAW. The commapany announced that new champions would be crowned in a tournament, but the start date wasn’t announced until the August 5 episode of SmackDown. There, the broadcast team confirmed that the competition would begin on the following episode of RAW.

Making her in-ring debut on RAW, Kai and her teammate Sky — both of whom returned to the world of WWE at WWE SummerSlam alongside Bayley— were able to come out with a major victory while “The Role Model” watched on at ringside. Things came to a close when Kai landed a huge running boot on Tamina, allowing Sky to hit the Over the Moonsault for the win.

Now, the duo will move on in the tournament, and face off against the winners of Alexa Bliss & Asuka and Nikki A.S.H. & Doudrop.
