Past is Roadblock

April 1, 2024. Brooklyn, New York. Barclays Center. WrestleMania RAW. Dakota Kai and WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Asuka & Kairi Sane of Damage CTRL considered Tegan Nox, Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark a breeze-of-a-warm-up for their trios match against Bianca Belair, Naomi and Jade Cargill at WrestleMania XL Saturday. Nox, Baszler and Stark were not part of the WrestleMania XL card so for them, this trios match against rivals from their past was going to be their WrestleMania Week Moment. And they made it count.

In recent memory, Nox and her regular tag team partner Natalya had faced off against Stark and Baszler in a couple tag matches. But years ago in Stardom, Nox and Baszler had in fact teamed up as part a trio with Kay Lee Ray. This new trio of Nox, Baszler and Stark jelled just as wonderfully showcasing an array of teamwork, proving to be a tough roadblock for Damage CTRL just days before WrestleMania XL. Damage CTRL would come out victorious but not without some battle scars to ice up.

In the week prior to and weeks following WrestleMania XL, Natalya would shift her focus from Tegan Nox to NXT. Natalya would return to Nox's side during the April UK Tour, picking up some tag team victories. But the looming questions surrounding the partnership between Nox and Natalya that hit a milestone on the March 4, 2024 Monday Night RAW were yet to be answered. And might not be for a time now because the 2024 WWE Draft split up Nox and Natalya. Tegan will return to SmackDown for a third tenure while Natalya remains on Monday Night RAW.
