Finally, the Kabuki Warriors get their Women’s Tag Team Championship Match with the title holders The IIconics tonight on Smackdown Live. They earned this right with a win over Billie Kay & Peyton Royce at the Live Event in Tokio, Japan.
WWE posted this in their Preview for tonight’s episode:
“Paige warned Peyton Royce & Billie Kay that a reckoning was coming for them. It’s here.
After defeating The IIconics in a non-title match in Tokyo last month, The Kabuki Warriors earned the right to challenge for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Asuka & Kairi Sane will get their opportunity at the titles tonight.
Can The Kabuki Warriors bring The IIconics’ reign to an end, or will the champions prove that the future is IIconic?“
The Kabuki Warriors, Asuka and Kairi Sane, debuted as a team shortly after Wrestlemania 35 but after some quick victories over local competitors, they mostly vanished from tv. This led to frustration from their manager Paige.
