Next, the second semi-final match took place on Smackdown where Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah defeated Fatal-4-Way winner Natalya and Sonya Deville to advance to the Women’s Tag Team Tournament Finals. Raquel pinned Deville with her Texana Bomb finisher.
After this game, WWE confirmed that Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah will face IYO SKY and Dakota Kai in the Women’s Tag Team Tournament Finals on the August 29 episode of Raw. The winners will be called the company’s newest tag champions.
IYO and Dakota’s team are the favorites to win this match as veteran Bayley will be on their side during the match to use her average streak. Also, their opponents, Raquel and Aliyah are makeshift teams that were only paired up for this tournament. It’s highly unlikely that WWE intends to run them as a tag team after the Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament.
The team of Bayley, IYO and Dakota are also set to face Bianca, Alexa Bliss and Asuka in a non-title six-woman tag team match at the WWE Clash at the Castle live event in Cardiff, Wales, scheduled for September 3. .
