New NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions crowned tonight

May 4, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

The Way’s Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell are your new WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.

The main event of tonight’s NXT episode on the USA Network saw LeRae and Hartwell defeat Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon in a brutal Street Fight to capture the straps. The finish saw Hartwell put Moon through a table at ringside, before LeRae hit Shotzi with brass knuckles, and then delivered a Wicked Stepsister into a steel chair for the pin.

This is The Way’s first reign with the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles, making them the third team to hold the titles. Blackheart and Moon won the titles from Dakota Kai and current NXT Women’s Champion Raquel Gonzalez back on March 10, the same night the titles were introduced.

Stay tuned for more from NXT. Below are several shots of tonight’s main event title change from the Capitol Wrestling Center at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL:

    This is the 3rd set of champs since the title was introduced March 10, 2021. How long before it’s revealed that it was Candice who was sending flowers, candy, etc to Shotzi and Ember and signing them “Dexter Lumis” in order to get Indie in the right frame of mind to win the belts? Another title change is probably less than a month away.

    They don’t have enough proper female teams for wwe women’s tag belts….let alone ANOTHER set of them. They’ve taken that “too many belts” issue they had about 15-20 years ago and shot it into overdrive.
