Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke are the new number one contenders for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships after winning big on Raw.
Brooke and Rose faced the glowing team of Lana and Naomi in tag team competition as champions Natalya and Tamina looked on. In a back and forth match Brooke and Rose were able to hit a tandem neck breaker off the top rope for the victory.
After the match champions, Natalya and Tamina who had joined the Raw commentary team for the match got into the ring and engaged in a little trash talk with their challengers.
Neither Dana Brooke nor Mandy Rose have held gold during their time in WWE so will be looking to make amends for that. The duo was a part of the tag team turmoil match on Night One of WrestleMania, where Rose had a famous slip. That match was ultimately won by Natalya and Tamina although they were unsuccessful in their first bite at the tag team gold cherry, losing on Night Two to Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.
Natalya and Tamina did ultimately win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Title on the 14th of May edition of SmackDown on FOX. This gave Natalya only the third title of her WWE career despite debuting for the company in 2007 and being the most winningest woman in the company’s history. The tag team title was also the first major title of Tamina’s 11 year WWE career with her only other gold a short stint with the 24/7 Title.
No word on a title match has yet been made for the two teams but Rose and Brooke will surely be hoping to make a name for themselves at the upcoming Hell In A Cell pay-per-view on June 20th.
