Alexa Bliss and Asuka will defend the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship at WWE Crown Jewel.
WWE has announced that Dakota Kai and IYO SKY will challenge for the gold at the premium live event on November 5. Bliss and Asuka beat the duo to win the gold on the October 31 episode of WWE RAW.
The announcement, courtesy of WWE’s website, is as follows:
The rematch is set! The newly-crowned WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss & Asuka will go to war against former titleholders Dakota Kai & IYO SKY of Damage CTRL in a high-stakes rematch at WWE Crown Jewel this Saturday.
Since returning to WWE alongside Bayley with the goal of taking over, SKY & Kai have become the scourge of Monday Night Raw, though they’ve faced strong opposition from Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, Bliss and Asuka. During the intense rivalry between the six Superstars, Bayley’s cohorts captured the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles from Raquel Rodriguez & Aliyah, and The Empress or Tomorrow and The Goddess of WWE were put on the shelf by Damage CTRL.
The day of reckoning, however, came quicker than expected. Returning from injury after three weeks, Bliss & Asuka immediately dethroned their adversaries this past Monday on Raw, taking the titles and setting the stage for a highly-anticipated rematch in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
