Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. are your new WWE Women's Tag Team Champions.

The duo defeated Natalya and Tamina on last night's episode of Raw, with A.S.H. scoring the pin on Natalya via roll-up. This came after Nattie looked to have the match won, trapping Nikki in a Sharpshooter, but allowed herself to be distracted by Ripley wiping Tamina out at ringside, leading to the fall.

Earlier in the night, A.S.H. dedicated the match to those impacted by pediatric cancer, promoting WWE's Connor's Cure campaign as part of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.

Tamina and Natalya's Women's Tag Team Title reign ended at 129 days. This was actually their first defence since May, with Natalya picking up an ankle injury in late July, forcing her onto the sidelines for several weeks. Despite this, WWE opted against stripping the duo of the belts - and Natalya was back on television in under a month.

Ripley and A.S.H. earned their shot at the gold by felling the now-former champions in a contendership match on Raw's 6 September episode. They followed this up with respective singles victories over Nattie and Tamina last week.
