Toxic Attraction’s Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne made last-minute additions to the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament, and their success has impressed the man who brought them on board in the first place. Former head of “NXT” and current head of WWE Creative Paul “Triple H” Levesque took to Twitter to comment on the duo’s debut in the main roster.

“Seize the moment” Levesque simply said it, citing the post from the official WWE Twitter account about Dolin and Jayne moving on in the tournament.

Dolin and Jayne replaced Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark in their first round match of the tournament to crown new champions. Stark was injured Tuesday during a WWE NXT Women’s Championship match against Champion Mandy Rose, while Lyons was simply called “medically unavailable.” Toxic Attraction defeated Natalya & Sonya Deville on “WWE SmackDown” on their debut, likely pride for the man who brought them to “WWE NXT” as a developmental talent – Dolin in 2021, Jayne in 2020. The pair has been doubles “NXT” Women’s Tag Team Champions while also supporting reigning “NXT” Women’s Champion Mandy Rose. Dolin and Jayne will compete in the semifinals of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament on August 26th.

Levesque assumed creative direction of WWE in late July, and since then the television product has seen the return of numerous published stars, including Dakota Kai and Dexter Lumis. One of Levesque’s changes also appears to be a renewed focus on the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship – with the titles having been dormant since May when they were vacated by Sasha Banks and Naomi when they reportedly launched “WWE Raw,” the long-awaited left tournament to crown new champions was finally announced in early August.
