    Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez defend their Women’s Tag Team Titles against Damage CTRL

    This upcoming Friday, the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles will be fiercely contested, as Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez valiantly defend their championship against the formidable duo of Bayley and Dakota Kai from Damage CTRL.

    In their recent bout, Damage CTRL secured a non-title victory over Morgan and Rodriguez, which paved the way for this opportunity to seize the gold.

    Despite their past achievements, Damage CTRL has been grappling with internal discord as of late. IYO SKY, in particular, has been demanding to be given the opportunity to contend for the Raw Women’s Title against Bianca Belair, rather than Bayley. With Bayley's leadership under scrutiny and Damage CTRL's lack of championship victories, the group that once dominated Raw has found itself in murky waters.

    Nonetheless, the stakes are high, and the intensity of the bout is sure to be amplified as both teams look to assert their dominance and secure their place at the top of the WWE Women’s Tag Team division.
