Vince McMahon made some big announcements at the end of 2018 but never delved into the announcement that women’s tag team belts would be added in the WWE.

Three weeks later, the WWE finally made their big announcement on when they will crown the new WWE women’s tag team champions and they did it through Alexa Bliss on her new talk show A Moment of Bliss.

On the show, which aired on Monday Night Raw this week, Bliss revealed the design for the new women’s tag team belts and then dropped the details on when the wrestlers would compete for them.

The match to determine the WWE women’s tag team champions

Alexa Bliss revealed that there would be three teams from Monday Night Raw and three teams from SmackDown Live that would compete for the WWE women’s tag team belts.

It will not be easy, either, because the winners will be decided inside the Elimination Chamber at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on February 17.

For those unfamilar with the Elimination Chamber, it is a giant circular chain-linked cell that has four pods in it. Two wrestlers, or in this case, two tag teams will start off the match.

At five-minute intervals, one of the pods will be randomly chosen to open and a new tag team will enter the ring.

This is an elimination match, so at any point if a member of a team is pinned or submits, that team is eliminated. That gives whoever’s pod opens last an advantage in the match.

The final team standing will win the WWE women’s tag team belts.

Who will be in the women’s tag team title Elimination Chamber match?

There has been no one to step up to claim a spot in the Elimination Chamber match yet and there is still a full month before this WWE pay-per-view event takes place.

However, it is easy to pick out most of the teams right now.

Sasha Banks and Bayley are the overwhelming favorites to win the women’s tag team belts — or at least be the top contender if a heel tag team wins the match.

The Riott Squad will almost surely be in the match and the IIconics announced on SmackDown Live this week that they want to win the belts. As they are both experienced tag teams (with a team name and everything), expect them to be in the match.

Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville will likely also represent SmackDown Live and there is a good chance that Naomi will get a partner and enter it as well.

The sixth team will almost surely be Nia Jax and Tamina.

Now, there is a chance that a team like Alexa Bliss and Mickie James could be in there but that is doubtful as the three Raw teams mentioned above are as much a lock as any team on the roster.

The 2019 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view will take place on February 17 and when it ends, the first ever WWE women’s tag team champions will be crowned.
