• WWE’s Future Plan For Trish Stratus & Lita Revealed
On this week’s episode of RAW, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus had a face-off with Alexa Bliss (accompanied by Mickie James).
Trish talked about her WWE Evolution PPV match with Alexa Bliss, but then Alexa challenged Trish to a tag team match at WWE Evolution instead of a singles match.
This led to WWE Hall of Famer Lita coming out and teaming up with Trish to take out Alexa & Mickie.
So instead of Trish Stratus vs. Alexa Bliss and Lita vs. Mickie James, we’re going to get a tag team match at WWE Evolution: Trish Stratus & Lita vs. Alexa Bliss & Mickie James.
You can watch this segment below:
In a backstage interview on RAW, Trish & Lita revealed their tag team name: ‘Besties Best For Business’.
According to PWInsider, Trish & Lita will be used as a tag team on WWE programming moving forward and they are set to work upcoming major WWE PPVs as a tag team.
The decision to put them together in a tag team was made two weeks ago.
This is quite an interesting development with WWE rumored to introduce WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles soon.
