Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan are the new Women’s Tag Team Champions after a win over Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus.
Earlier in the show, Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez found Lita on the floor backstage after having seemingly been attacked. Adam Pearce, Trish Stratus, and Becky Lynch were quickly on the scene, with the latter accusing Morgan and Rodriguez of serving the beatdown.
In another backstage segment, Lynch said that she was ready to defend the Tag Team Titles alone, but she was approached by someone else with a better idea. This set up Stratus and Lynch teaming together to take on Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan.
The action in the ring was fast and furious, with Raquel Rodriguez and Becky Lynch carrying much of the load for their respective teams. However, it was their partners who were involved in the final moments. With Lynch and Rodriguez occupied on the outside, Morgan dodged a Chick Kick before rolling up Stratus to claim the win.
After the match, Lynch went to console Stratus but was attacked from behind and laid out with a Chick Kick.
This is the first time that Stratus has turned heel in 18 years.

Becky Lynch Vs. Trish Stratus On The Horizon
Trish Stratus returned to WWE on February 27th when she helped Becky Lynch and Lita claim the Women’s Tag Team Titles. A week later the WWE Hall of Famer called out Damage CTRL and set up a huge six-woman match at WrestleMania 39.
The match, which Stratus, Lynch, and Lita won, was the Canadian’s first in-ring action since SummerSlam 2019.
It was reported in the run-up to WrestleMania that Stratus would be turning heel and facing The Man at SummerSlam.
