Kabuki Warriors earn WWE Women’s Tag Team title shot after win in Tokyo

The Kabuki Warriors – the team of former Smackdown Women’s champion Asuka and former NXT Women’s champion Kairi Sane – defeated the current WWE Women’s Tag Team champions in Tokyo today to earn a title shot.

The stipulation was set on Smackdown were it was announced that if Asuka and Sane win on Friday against The IIconics, they would get a future title shot. And the Japanese tag team did just that in front of their home crowd with Kairi Sane hitting the insane elbow finishing move on Peyton Royce for the win.

Asuka and Sane haven’t been used much on television lately ever since they were introduced as a tag team by former Smackdown General Manager Paige.
