On the October 31st episode of Monday Night Raw, Asuka and Alexa Bliss pulled off a victory over IYO SKY and Dakota Kai in the main event to claim women’s tag team gold.
Asuka and Alexa Bliss have quietly become tag team specialists within WWE as the victory marks the third title win for both women. In fact, Asuka now holds the unique distinction of being the first woman to hold the titles three times with three different partners.
Alexa Bliss & Asuka Will Be Back In Action At WWE Crown Jewel
Following their hard-fought victory, WWE have wasted little time in announcing a rematch between the new champions and IYO SKY and Dakota Kai of Damage CTRL. The bout will take place at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on November 5th.
It was also recently confirmed that Bray Wyatt will be appearing on the show.
However, just days ahead of the event, it has been reported that Saudi Arabia has shared knowledge of a “imminent attack” from Iran with the United States government. It is said that the attacks are planned for “targets in the Kingdom.”
This report has naturally raised questions of the future of WWE Crown Jewel which is only a matter of days away. At time of writing WWE have not issued a statement regarding the news, and at least publicly, plans remain unchanged.
