Raw could be on the verge of adding another female Superstar to their roster.

According to a report from PWInsider, Tamina has been medically cleared by doctors to return to the ring and will be traveling on the road as early as next week with the Raw roster.

After confirming she would return to WWE in September, Tamina has been training for weeks at the the WWE Performance Canter for her eventual return to squared circle:

Tamina underwent surgery earlier this year to repair torn ligaments. She last wrestled on April 23rd, in a multi-women tag team match that took place in Malaga, Spain. Her last televised match was during the April 21st edition of Smackdown, where she teamed up with Naomi to take on the team of Natalya and Paige.

Are you excited to see Tamina back on television? What are your thoughts on Tamina joining Raw? How would you book her return? Let us know in the comments below!

    Not a big fan of Tamina but like RAW needs another woman to sit backstage for Sasha’s and Charlotte’s matches. She’s probably going to have one feud with Nia then struggle to get TV time like Alicia or job to Sasha and Bayley like Dana. I’d rather she go to Smackdown, more opportunities for her there.

  • Dropitboy

    I really wanted her to go Smackdown she had good chemistry with Becky and Natalya so could have decent matches with them. I think Smackdown would use her well she’ll just get lost in the shuffle on Raw. If she is headed to Raw I hope they pair her up with Nia Jax.

  • Stef’

    The best spot for a return would be a female Royal Rumble I think.

    • Marshy

      It would be great if they have a Royal Rumble style just with the women on the same Pay Per View as the men.

      • Jorge Hernandez Moran

        Yes maybe a 10 or 15 women rumble

      • Stef’

        Yes that’s the idea, something like a 20 women RR from RAW, SD and even NXT, the winner choses her championship match for WM.

  • QUEEN but KEEP HER AWAY from Raw. She will do absolutely nothing there, I want her on SD!

      She doesn’t deserve to do anything. She can’t wrestle for shit and has two moves that she executes properly.

      • Geek God

        I think she’s gotten better now, look at the Team Bad vs Team BAE match that opened a ppv earlier this year, that was a very good match, i do agree that she seems to do best as a bodyguard sidekick, but not everyone needs to do the same things, they all have their own strengths and weaknesses

      • Number One

        That’s Alicia, not Tamina

        • Mark

          Yeah right. Alicia? The best bumper in the division. What is Tamina good at? Nothing.

    • Amy

      OMG BORIS I DIDN’T KNOW YOU LIKED INES BRASIL!!!

      • queen of gifs

        • Amy

          She queen of memes.
          Gretchen is queen of gifs

    • Billie Gay

      Queen of bodyguards! At this point she might as well start a security business.

    • Rhawk

      I mean, Eva DOES need a bodyguard riiight?

      I dont want this happen, but if she goes to SmackDown, WE KNOW that’s what’ll happen.

      • Good, at least she won’t job to the same people

      • Number One

        No no no. As much as I love Eva, Tamina CANNOT be her plus one. Sorry. Can’t happen

    • MyleneCruz

      I actually think Raw could be good for her.

  • Charlie Flickinger

    RAW needs her, but Smackdown!Live would use her better.

    • Raw doesn’t need her, they have a talented division, but like you said, can barely use it well other than a few.

      • Charlie Flickinger

        But RAW could use another ‘big’ girl. Right now Nia needs someone dominate looking to help get her over as a monster. Crushing Tamina could do that.

        • And bury Tamina? Nia has strong competition, they just don’t wanna let her beat them. The last thing they need is Tamina going that way again.

  • Shady #AndStill ?

    another one to warm the bench….

  • Johnny

    I hope she used that time away to get better in the ring, because….yikes.

  • Kvngbalor

    Watch they team her with Nia

    • Marshy

      If they do, that they would be like the female version of Earthquake and Typhoon or Power Of Pain (Barbarian and The Warlord) or Demolition.

  • KingAlly

    So she can join Alicia Fox in the catering area… Seriously she could be used better on SD by having a feud with Naomi, Becky or Nikki, Either way she has a built in rivalry with them all and would be given more opportunity there as well. Its either that or be a jobber to Nia Jax or Sasha Banks Bodyguard

  • Boo Dallas

    She’s not needed in neither division, she’s sloppy, slow, cringey, and boring. If she comes back just have her be used as a jobber. I do not want her taking push away from women that are more better worker than her which are everyone on the active women’s roster.

      • Boo Dallas

        Name one woman from the Raw and SmackDown roster than you can consider Tamina more talented than them? She’s the weakest link in terms of wrestling skills, mic work, charisma, and ring psychology so pardon me if I rather see the far more talented women get oppurtunities than her.

    • GailKimStan

      True tbh

  • gaelle

    RAW already has so many girls they’re not even using. Tamina would most likely just stay backstage or be a bodyguard again. Let her go to SD and actually have a chance to do something

    • What?

      Like Naomi? Lolz.

  • Ollie Byron Roché

    why is she not on smackdown?! If she was on smackdown with a revamped look, she could actually get over with the crowd. On raw she will be well,…just there.

  • Francisco Baguer

    Tamina has suffered so many injuries, I don’t why she would want to come back. Considering whats happening with her father lately with the murder charges & only having 6 months to live because of his illness, I think WWE is the last place she want to be in. Wouldn’t she want to be there for her father rather than going back to the company that pretty much erased his legacy.

    • John Finnie

      Money she is helping her father by maybe helping with fees, she needs to work for her 2 kids & thats not true about 6 months to live,

  • Cailumm #NikkiStan

    She should have been put on the SD brand that’s all I’m saying.

  • Danny?

    I’d rather see her on Smackdown and have her making her return on Sunday at TLC attacking Nikki Bella during her match with Carmella, being revealed as her attacker from Survivor Series. From there she feuds with Nikki for a bit without Carmella, I don’t want them as a team.
    If she is going to RAW then I’d like to see her team up with Nia and run over the division there.

  • #Hooligan

    Smackdown would the best place for her since Raw’s womens division is all about the 3H.

  • FadedPaige

    Tamina vs Nia Jax or why bother? If they don’t go with that then Tamina should go to Smackdown where she will be used better

  • 3???????

    Smack down needs a “power house” heel ..

    • Marshy

      Just like Raw brand has a powerhouse heel in Nia Jax and that Smackdown could use a powerhouse on their brand.

  • Danny?

    Also she better have a new theme song cause her last one was horrific!

  • 3???????

    But I guess her teaming up nia would be dominate

  • GailKimStan

    Hope she’ll enjoy her time at catering

  • Cathy Kelley.

    Raw keeps getting all the girls but only uses two.

  • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

    So she can join the jobbers club again. I think SD fits better for her. Still I would kill for a Nia Jax vs Tamina match. Both with tons of Samoan moves!

  • Monkey Tennis

    Two things are puzzling me here. One is why anyone would be especially excited to see Tamina return? She’s a forgettable wrestler who’s done nothing of note in her entire WWE career. Now, in fairness to Tamina, that’s as much down to bad booking/character development as it is down to her own talents. And given the generi /boring roles she’s played over the years, generally as a supporting character in other wrestler’s feuds, maybe it’s understandable that she’s never pushed herself in the ring – because when has she ever really needed to?

    But, at the end of the day, it is what it is. And unless we’re about to see a whole new new Tamina in terms of in-ring ability, character, mic skills and pretty much everything else, this just feels like an addition to the roster that isn’t needed.

    The other thing I’m curious about is why anyone thinks that she’d be better off on Smackdown? I know there’s this weird emperor’s-new-clothes effect as far as some fans are concerned with Smackdown, in that they can’t/won’t see what’s actually happening there on a weekly basis. But come on, really? How would Smackdown be any better for Tamina than Raw? Because I’m sure they wouldn’t use her in the same background/filler capacity that they’ve used Nattie and Naomi for the last few months, right?

    • Dysfunctional

      amen

    • I’d rather watch her on TV than not at all.

    • Jolie

      I completely agree with almost everything you have said.

      My only point of contention would be that the women SmackDown puts less focus on (Natalya & Naomi) have more character and development than the women Raw puts less focus on (Alicia & Dana).

      • Monkey Tennis

        It’s marginal. I mean, although they’ve been seen less frequently, Alicia and Dana have both had feuds (of a sort), and Dana’s had her on/off semi-storyline with Charlotte. Naomi’s only moment of note came directly as a result of Becky’s absence and Nattie is… I don’t honestly know what Nattie’s direction/purpose is right now.

        I’m not saying RAW is better. I’m just saying they’re as bad as each other in terms of distributing the spotlight across either division.

        • SD is more balanced about it. They’re all on an equal field, no one stands out more than the other. Raw has Sasha and Charlotte and background characters, two of whom are protected, which leads to the same matches or no matches at all.

          • Delroy Coke

            They use Natalya and Naomi every week. But at least Smackdown always use all of their talent.

          • Exactly

          • Jolie

            Indeed.

            Naomi or Natalya have much more chance of going over Becky or Alexa than Dana or Alicia have of going over Sasha or Charlotte.

          • Im saying!

        • Divalicious

          They definitely are not as bad. Smackdown i building up 4 girls on the same level. RAW is only building up 2. Smackdown does it all in around 12 mintes. RAW gives all the 20+ minutes it dedicates to the women to just Sasha and Charlotte.

    • Cathy Kelley.

      Smackdown still uses Naomi and Natalya, I get it, they’re not getting a great treatment compared to the others but at least we get to see them on TV.

    • Danny?

      Speaking for myself I’ve enjoyed her work in Team BAD and with Naomi. I agree she’s never been a major player but she’s decent enough in the ring to carry a good match.
      As for the whole Smackdown VS RAW thing, I know some people tend to glorify Smackdown saying that they use all of the girls well and in reality Naomi & Nattie get paid dust. However, with that being said there is still a higher possibility of Tamina getting used properly on Smackdown than on RAW as up until now it has been the Charlotte and Sasha show with the rest of the girls being supporting characters. With Smackdown she has possible feuds with Naomi & Nikki.

    • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

      Bottom line is she’s been passed up by even more women now since bread spilt honestly she’s no longer needed she’s close to 40 and hasn’t done anything in WWE

    • Divalicious

      Naomi and Natalya have not been booked in feuds yet that’s true but they’re treated better than Dana and Alicia by far.
      Smackdown tries it’s best to use everyone and that’s why you find Naomi getting a win here and there even if she is not in a storyline. But Smackdown tries to do it in under 15 minutes while Sasha and Charlotte stay getting 20 minute segments every week. Amd Naomi and Natalya still have hope as Smackdown is not done with it’s first feuds but eventually (and very soon most likely) Becky vs Nikki and Nikki vs Carmella will come to an end and Naomi and Natalya will get their chance. Natalya is more than likely feuding with Nikki next.
      On RAW we can see Nia Jax go three weeks without an appearance let alone Alicia or Dana. Hell Emma has been waiting near three months to make a return but they don’t know what to do with her because they’d rather continue that horrible Sasha vs Charlotte storyline and give them all the time.

    • I’ve always liked her. Sure, she’s never been a main player but she’s never really been given a chance. Her vs Beth was really good, surprisingly to us all as she has never been able to show us what she could do, outside of that.

      I’d prefer to see her go to SmackDown Live though. I wouldn’t mind her being the one who attacked Nikki and join Natalya as a team. That could be fun.

    • Raekon

      The main Problem with Tamina is that the wwe Limits all the samoans into having and sharing the samoan moveset (superkick, top rop splash, corner splash, Corner hip attack, samoan drop mainly) which on the one side is a nice Feature cause they represent a legacy but on the other side very limiting when they are not allowed to do much more than that.
      So it was refreshing to see her do a few powermoves while she was in the BAD stable and even more on the old NXT on which she were feuding with Kaitlyn back then.
      The reason many and me included believe she would had been better on SD is because the NXT headwriter works for the SD and he would rather write her something good we could enjoy.
      Another Thing is screentime and useability.
      On SD she could enter a potential feud as also have fresh matchups unline Raw on which she will probably be fed to Nia, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley and probably Emmalina too.
      She has something to offer and she can have decent to good matches when given the chance.

      • Monkey Tennis

        Except this is all supposition and guesswork. Now, sure the same can be said of any assumption that Tamina wouldn’t be used well on Smackdown, but there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that would be the case.

        We’ve seen how sparsely Nattie and Naomi have been used so far, and that’s on a roster of just six active women. Add Tamina to that mix, not to mention a soon to be (unfortunately) returning Eva Marie and d’you think we’ll be getting more than two feuds at a time? That means more women on the sidelines (or used in supporting/enhancement roles… And by now, I’d think Tamina is done with playing sidekick to numerous other wrestlers).

        Right now, Smackdown has a title feud because obviously and Nikki’s in a feud(‘ish) because the WWE are always gonna give Nikki something to do. Outside of that though, I’ve seen no more solid evidence as to why going to Smackdown would any more guarantee Tamina TV time than she’d potentially get on RAW.

        • Raekon

          Well plain and simple: Because SD is using all of their women weekly most of the time unlike Raw on which we mainly see Sasha and Charlotte with Bayley and Nia doing like a guest appearance once in a while. Alicia only Comes out when someone is needed to be pinned by any of the others and Dana is more like a Accessoire on Charlottes Garderobe that she will “wear” sometimes and sometimes not.

    • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

      Well that is just your opinion, I think Tamina’s start in WWE was very promising, her matches with Natalya & Tamina left us wanting more. She started in a time were it was Divas, it was more about looks and while she has such a beautiful face, she’s big, without her boobs done and she is already pushing 40. I think WWE might appreciate her more now since they are focusing women in a different way. They will be using more her Snuka last name, maybe get in a feud with Charlotte. I wished she was going to SD because she can get better opportunities.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    No!!! I wanted her go to Smackdown and start a feud with Naomi about being left in the dust. Raw isn’t going to do her any justice.

  • Gabriella Panajotova

    Tamina is injury prone and not particularly impressive in the ring or the mic. Further more she hasn’t been handled well as character either, so even though there is potential in Nia vs Tamina it’s not gonna work due to the fact that Tamina has to be first dragged from irrelevancy and I just don’t see it.

    • Billie Gay

      They should just release Tamina & Rosa and give their spots to someone from NXT

  • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

    Tamina is a good bodyguard that’s it so if she’s somebody bodyguard great just don’t put her in the ring or give her a mic

  • #Lasskicker

    Lmao it’s taken them 3 months+ to debut a women they’ve put the effort in to repackage…. what chance does Tamina have?

    • mking2590

      A Statement

  • Windyhawaii

    Please have this not be true, Tamina needs to be on SDL. There are so many opportunities for her there. The only thing she’ll be used for on RAW is the person to challenge Nia Jax, and it’ll be deja vu of her and Beth Phoenix. Because we all know nia would end up winning in that feud. God WWE really just kinda does anyone not from NXT bleh

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      What would there be on Smackdown for her? A feud with Naomi then what?

      On Raw she could feud with Charlotte about their family legacy, feud with Nia, align with Nia, feud with former Team Bad member Sasha or she could even be a bodyguard for Emmalina.

      • Windyhawaii

        Bodyguard is big no, that’s been her almost entire career. Smackdown Live is a better place because she can grow there and not have to most likely job to the 3HW, if she feuded with charlotte, Sasha or nia we all know she’d lose. She has more potential on smackdown. Plus the girls On SD have good chemistry with Tamina, her march with Becky on RAW was really good

  • Jamal

    Good for her. I’m interested in what capacity they use her. The Raw women’s division is pretty boring, IMO. Any addition or change can only be a benefit.

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      Emmalina needs to hurry, mess.

  • Jouey

    Everybody is hating on Tamina why is she even trying? Well do u even understand that to be a wrestler in WWE is a well-payied JOB and she havo to carry for her kidz? I think she needs these money..

  • #BrieForPeace ?

    YEEEEEES! Finally! Hope she can finally be in a role where she can showcase her ability thoroughly and is given a new chance to refresh herself and her character. She’s been an afterthought for too long, a push would be fresh and would estabilish her like they’ve always failed to do

    • Windyhawaii

      Except for the fact that she’s going to a brand that will most likely use her for a month then have her job to the 3HW

      • #BrieForPeace ?

        Most likely, but seeing how protected her last run was, i’m hoping they atleast will give her some type of relevancy on her own

        • Windyhawaii

          I sure hope so

    • Raekon

      IF they will add her into a feud, then it will probably be a filler feud AGAIN on Raw in which she will Job to everyone she goes against and that’s what makes me beyond sad. :(

      • #BrieForPeace ?

        RAW does need talent, however nothing is ever gonna shift if they don’t stop pushing the same people over and over or having the same matches weekly. That being said, I don’t see it happening, you’re right, but at the same time idk how they would tarnish her bodyguard/strong female character. RAW already has a strong female character whereas SmackDown could really use one just to shift the dynamic even more.

        • Raekon

          Exactly! That’s why I hoped she will end up in SD but it seems they will use her as a jobber on raw again. :/

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Basing yourself on the so called “Raw only use two women” and the so called “on SD, everybody is equal” to say that Tamina should go on SD is pretty laughable.. Naomi being a complete non-factor on the SD brand pretty much proves that.
    Besides, while I believe that both brands would benefit from having more girls, it’s true that Raw brand is more lacking in terms of girls really with multiple girls being out.
    Now, we have to look at what she would bring to both brands..

    • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

      Can’t use 6 women at 1 time it’s impossible unless it’s a all women show

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Of course you can’t and that’s something people should understand.

        • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

          Well obviously people don’t but just stating the obvious glad you understand

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I totally do. ;)

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            If it’s 20 women on the roster and 17 are used people will complain about the 3 not getting used

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Yeah and will then because of that destroy the company when it just 3 women and that not all the men are used as well. If we truly want equality, we have to get that just like it is the case for the men, not all the women can be used.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            the best will get used

      • Raekon

        SD already did it several times since the brand split and showed that it is possible if you really want.

        • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

          That was to crown a new champ

          • Raekon

            Nope, we see almost everyone every weak unlike raw cause SD always finds a way to Showcase all the women available.

      • SD does it almost every week. Keep up.

    • Divalicious

      RAW has 7 available girls and Smackdown has 6.
      And again Naomi and Natalya will likely get used soon. All women’s segments on Smackdown take less time than a Sasha and Charlotte segment on RAW but they try their best to build up each girl and that’s why Natalya gets these backstage segments and Naomi gets a win from time to time. Naomi is a nonfactor maybe but she isn’t a jobber like Alicia and Dana.

      • Joseph

        7 by Sunday night.

        • Divalicious

          No no Emma should be counted because the only reason she’s not on TV is them having Sasha and Charlotte hog all the spotlight

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Eva Marie ready to return after Becky vs Alexa get ready!

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        “will likely get used soon.”
        Assumption which is something I could say for some women of Raw you’re talking about.

        “Naomi is a nonfactor maybe but she isn’t a jobber like Alicia and Dana.” I’m laughing at how ridiculous this! Oh I don’t know if you noticed but Alicia is a part of a storyline with wrestler on the cruiserweight division.
        Since you talked about Dana, well, she’s been push and got a lot of opportunities but clearly, WWE toned it down with her as she wasn’t delivering but she still get used a lot as she is with Charlotte.

        Again, I am not saying/claiming that one show is better than the other.

    • Naomi and Nattie are on TV every week, if not, every other one. People know who they are and react to them, unlike what happens with Fox, Dana and their powerhouse, Nia. Also you can see them pinning champions any day of the week, meanwhile you wont see that on Raw, because they’ve portrayed some as unbeatable forces.

      • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        Nattie is NOW used every other week. Not Naomi.
        Fact is, Naomi has only been used when she was involved in multi-women match (6 pack challenge and Survivor Series) OR to remplace someone (Becky when she was injured). The focus has never been on her really and even when she is used, she is basically a non-factor. Natalya has just began starting getting some focus on her but before that, just like Naomi, she was nothing.

        As for that fantasy that anyone can pin the champion, I have to disagree with that yet again.. 3 women have been build well (other than the champ) : Carmella, Alexa, Nikki.
        I can’t picture Naomi and Nattie beating the champion right now.

        Now, the subject remains on Tamima and where she would fit in and unfortunately, the sole arguments I have seen about the fact that Tamina should go to SD is that “SD gives more opportunities for women and she will get more chance” but that isn’t a valuable argument.
        First of all, you can’t generalize a booking. You can’t say because “they use them better there, she will be used better”. Naomi yet again is a good example of that. It all depends on their interest in her and what she can bring.
        One key argument I would bring to you as to why she should go to Raw is that it would make up for fresher storylines/pairings. Indeed, Tamina already worked with Nikki, Nattie, Naomi or even Becky while on Raw, she will work with women she has barely worked with which will make it fresher. Not to mention, that with Eva’s comeback, there is potential that she may become her bodyguard while on Raw, there isn’t anyone she could be paired to other than Nia because they have family connexion and even that would feel totally fresh and has great potential.
        I would like concrete arguments and if you have some, I have zero problem hearing them.

        • Matches SD women have had since the split
          16 – Alexa, Nattie
          14 – Naomi, Becky, Carmella
          12 – Nikki
          How can you say she’s not used when she is, plus not one of SD girls has been off TV for more than two weeks, while on Raw some disappear for even more than 3, and often.

          SD uses all their women in any capacity possible, and not to be a prop like Dana, or smile backstage like Alicia. Be it on commentary, backstage segment, titantron promos, matches, ME matches, in ring promos, you’ve seen it all. When was the last time a big segment was devoted to others than Sasha and Charlotte? Hmm it was probably that arm wrestling match.

          If you don’t see how they can win, I do. Alexa has pinned Becky multiple times, Naomi has beat Alexa, Nikki beat Nattie, while Carmella beat both of them, Nattie beat Becky cleanly at Battleground and eliminated the current Raw women’s champ with a rollup at SS. All in all, they’ve all exchanged wins and no one looks way stronger than the other.

          On Raw there’s a huge gap and it’s seen. The lack of featuring other women doesn’t help. Emmalina videos have been going through 3 title reigns and yet Tamina would do something? Not even Bayley is doing anything atm even though the attention was on her at SS. If Bayley and Nia can barely shine then I’m sure Taminas chances are zero.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            See, your sole argument as to why Tamina should go to SD is that “since SD use their women better, she will be used better” and yet again, that isn’t a valable argument as Naomi being a non-factor shows that you can be on the best show possible and be used like crap (not to mention that you showing the amount of match she had and me not even remembering most of these matches just speaks volume on her relevancy and how much she is a non-factor in her brand despite being used). That is the biggest argument I have seen here from SD defenders which is pretty ridiculous in my view because you can’t generalize a booking to everyone.
            Not every one is equal or no division can be equal, men, tag teams, cruiserweight, ladies.. Proof of inequality in the SD division : Carmella, Nikki, Alexa and Becky have a match on the PPV and are involved in a storyline while both Nattie and Naomi aren’t for the moment which is a form of inequality.

            Let’s not take away too much of the subject tho as it remains on Tamina tho while there is too much talk on the booking of shows and not arguments as to why Tamina should go there.
            I have given an argument, I have yet to hear a valable one from you.

          • Divalicious

            Naomi and Natalya are still booked in a way where theybare resdy to be pushed at any time without getting any build up. Both are still credible competitors each with a singles PPV win since the draft under their belt even if nonfactors at the moment. Smackdown isn’t perfect but it’s leagues ahead of RAW with how it’s treats the entire division. Dana and Alicia can’t be put in anything and look credible at this point. They each need months of build up before they can be seen as a legit threat to anyone.

          • But she isn’t a non factor. You keep thinking that when I have shown you that she’s been consistently used and despite no feud at the moment she can easily jump in and get a title match. Give it to Dana and Alicia and you’ll see people’s reactions about it. They’d be astonished.

            They’ve used everyone on SD to the point no one stands out more than the other. It’s seen. On Raw there is a huge difference between them.

            SD has managed to use 4 women to their full potential at least, while Raw has given it to two only. And the division’s with 6 people only don’t need segregation. If there were 20+ of them on the roster, yes, but when it’s such a thin number of available people, everyone should be used and that’s what SD is doing and why Tamina would fit in. If you think it’s only me, scroll through the comments section and see that I’m not the only one who sees it.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            Being on the show doesn’t mean that you are important or relevant. Her booking has shown that she is nothing more than a non-factor. The “compare to them she is..” argument is pretty tired. It literally just means that she is badly booked but less than them (which again is debatable but let’s not get into that too much).

            “If you think it’s only me, scroll through the comments section and see that I’m not the only one who sees it.” That’s the thing and the problem. The sole argument you all seem to have is because one division has seen better booking than the other and is more entertaining to you, she should go there but the reality is, who’s to say that she is gonna get the same treatment? That is why that argument doesn’t work to me and that I can’t agree with that.
            It’s what she can bring to both show that should matter and I have yet to see much argument talking about what she could bring to SD.

            I mean if we follow y’all logic, then every women of WWE should go to SD and leave Sasha and Charlotte on Raw alone and every one will used better like no.. That doesn’t work to me.

          • Yes, I will compare, because if I ever think Naomi is underused so much, and I don’t, I just have to see what’s going on Raw with Alixia, Dana and pretty much everyone besides Charlotte and Sasha and I’ll see that she’s 100% better booked than them. And thankfully I’m not in the minority.

            As for everyone leaving Raw, that might as well happen, because it’s been 5 months and no change on there, at all.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            And about TAMIMA, since well, it’s the actual topic, still no other argument as to what would she bring more to one than the other?

          • She’d appear almost every episode and probably have a storyline, that’s the least what I’m asking for. If Bayley or Nia cant get it on Raw then I doubt she will.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            This is you assuming here tho, not necessarily a reality. We don’t know what can happen as long as it’s not done (or totally obvious which isn’t the case here).

          • Of course it is, I’m going by what I’ve seen so far in these 5 months of the brand split, and so far I’ve seen it that way.

          • Wrestling.fan.from.France

            I guess we’ll have to wait and see..

  • #4HW / 3x time champ BO$$

    I think she won’t return until 2017! Also, this makes me think that Asuka is going to Smackdown since Emma, Tamina and Bayley all went to Raw

    • Wrestling.fan.from.France

      SD needs big names and I believe that Asuka going to SD could be a good thing.

      • Jouey

        Asuka going to retire will be much better.

        • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

          Wow you’re super nice

          • Joseph

            What do you expect from a Eva Marie fan.

        • Wrestling.fan.from.France

        • Hojo’s Deadly Diving Elbow ?

          I just…wow…

        • Cookie Munster :D ?

          This is too much. You shouldn’t wish bad things on people. Eva can’t wrestle it’s the truth.

    • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

      I don’t want Asuka on SD TBH she should stay on NXT cuz people think Sasha and Charlotte are booked strong hell Asuka is underfeated and pretty much unbeatable

      • #4HW / 3x time champ BO$$

        I would call up Asuka on the Smackdown after Wrestlemania confronting the champion

        • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

          Send her to raw SD is doing fine as is

          • #4HW / 3x time champ BO$$

            yeah, but it will get stale… the divisions need new blood from time to time

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            And raw needs more new blood let’s be honest here Alicia Tamina Dana and Summer aren’t gonna cut it

          • #4HW / 3x time champ BO$$

            with proper handling Tamina could be in a good feud with Nia. Summer will be relegated to the comedy. Alicia will keep doing what she does. Dana can be saved if used properly. But then you have Sasha, Charlotte, Nia and Bayley who are rulling the division, there is no room for Asuka.

            While in Smackdown you have Becky, Alexa, Nikki and Eva Marie who will be feuding with each other until Wrestlemania and then? you need Asuka

            My opinion

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Carmella is doing good heel work Alexa is doing good heel work Becky and Nikki are doing good babyface work Eva is over as a heel and you have nattie and Naomi who are good enough to get people over SD is fine send her to raw

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Raw still has Emmalina, Paige, Summer and now Tamina who hasn’t been on the show since the draft. It won’t get stale. WWE just needs to now stop the Char and Sasha feud.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            SD won’t get stale either they have 7

  • fearlessfoxy

    I guess they just need some more meat and bones to feed to Sasha and Charlotte!

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      That’s why we have Emmalina premiering soon. ;)

  • Jolie

    I can see a Nia Jax (heel) vs. Tamina (face) feud, which will be nice considering Tamina’s best ring work was when she was a face against a heel Beth Phoenix.

    • Jolie

      I actually really enjoyed their feud.

      http://i.imgur.com/c5uTa.gif

      • Darren C. #ItCouple #Cesaro

        This was the best of Tamina. I started to like her since her “feud” with Nattie

      • carlos

        Tamina is so gorgeous right here

      • Miguel Orona Rodríguez

        Tamina looked amazing during that gimmick. That match between her and Beth was hard hitting and her matches with Nattie always left me wanting more. Imagine a match between Natalya, Tamina & Charlotte? That would be blood supremacy.

    • mking2590

      No one of them can barely wrestle and the other is green neither one of them can carry a match

      • Storm Saywell

        Take your hate somewhere else, thanks.

      • Jolie

        Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Carmella put on a good match when they were all much greener than they are now.

    • Number One

      I really hope this happens, mainly because a) they’re cousins, and b) a face Tamina would be a welcome change

  • Kira_cx

    If she goes to Raw put her with Nia Jax and make them a legit threat. But, knowing Raw they’ll mess it up so never mind.

  • Rhawk

    People have said this already, but she’d have a MUCH BETTER chance on SmackDown. She’s get overshadowed by Nia on Raw. She can be the intimidating force of SmackDown, maybe start a feud with former BAD member Naomi?

    The bad thing is I see her then becoming a bodyguard for Eva because you know, TAMINA MUST ALWAYS BE THE BODYGUARD RIIIIIIIGHT?!?!?!?!

    • Gato_wiska

      Since Bayley is suppose to be an underdog, Tamina can win a feud againts her, Then she can feud againts Sasha for the title.

  • carlos

    It would have made more sense if tamina came back as a crazy heel and attacked naomi because she feels that the other members of team bad left her high and dry. And make her the dominating force of smackdown.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7a504889d0a6f772458fa20d6298006ce16d122334c1ff1c01ca62fb330696dd.gif

    • Crazy. #RIPMae

      she can still return as a crazy heel and attack Sasha uhhh

      • carlos

        Yea that would be cool too but her ties were more to naomi she was with naomi from the beginning of naomina, to team bad, back to naomina her and naomi have alot more history, plus the family connection.

        • Crazy. #RIPMae

          yeah but sasha is the champion rn, Tamina could be jealous that Sasha got opportunities for the championship while she had to sit back at home watching. it’s basically the same when TEAM BAD formed.. Sasha the champion

          • carlos

            I think naomi needs her more, she has no fued and no direction rn. This could revitalize both characters. Sasha has Nia Jax to worry about if she makes it out of roadblock still champion, cause it’s reports stating that Charolette might get the title back. Hopefully it ain’t true

          • Like Tamina would get a title shot against Sasha, let alone a feud. Please. Sasha would squash her in no time.

  • Darren C. #ItCouple #Cesaro

    Her daddy has only 6 months to live… sad news for her and I guess she’s not goin’ tô be with WWE for more than 1 year

    • Hojo’s Deadly Diving Elbow ?

      Goddamn that’s terrible. Snuka AND Vader????

      • Darren C. #ItCouple #Cesaro

        Yes :/

  • Hangga

    she will serve as bodyguard get injured again and returns lolm taminas career is just a mess

  • Booking 101

    I don’t really see where she would fit, to be honest. Raw already as Nia as a powerhouse so bringing Tamina in wouldn’t make much sense at the moment.

    What I do fear (and it probably will happen if we look at her career in WWE) is that she will be a non-factor wherever she ends up. SD already as Naomi and Nattie on the sidlines waiting for their push and, personally, I wouldn’t want to see Tamina pass in front of them for a push. On Raw we got the 3H plus Nia as the main girls (Nia and Bayley to a lesser extent) so I really don’t see where she can fit in all of that.

    Guess we have to wait and see and pray she finally gets a decent treatment somewhere

    • Gato_wiska

      She is Nia’s cousin, making it an automatic alliance

  • BlossomingNarcissist

    Why not place her on SD? They’re women’s roster is smaller…maybe she’ll feud with Sasha since char is supposed to be out of the picture

  • Thiago Oliveira

    Tamina is done. She will only return to be a jobber for someone. MARK MY WORDS.

  • Gato_wiska

    Storylines for Tamina?

    Feud with Sasha Banks because of their History with Team bad.

    An Alliance with Nia Jax because they were cousins.

    A feud with Nia Jax

    • Billie Gay

      Bodyguard

      • Rhawk

        Correction – Eva Marie’s Bodyguard (should she go to SmackDown).

  • Geek God

    Why is she going to Raw??? All this means is they aren’t going to do shit worth her, if she went to Smackdown she would’ve gave had an instant storyline with Naomi that writes itself

    • Gato_wiska

      On Raw she can feud with Charlotte for their Family honor
      Feud with Bayley so Bayley will finally be an under dog
      Feud with Sasha Banks for the title because of their history with Team bad and challenge her for the title.

      Align with Nia Jax because they were cousins.

      Betray Nia Jax because of jelousy.

      • GOD STRATUS•

        ???

      • Geek God

        I forgot she was with Sasha, has a family legacy like Charlotte, and could align with her cousin Nia, shes stacked with storylines that already write themselves on Raw, on Smackdown, all she has is Naomi

      • What?

        You can fantasy book all you want to but that wont stop the sub par wrestling or any live crowd from giving her a non reaction.

  • Cameron’s Beatdown

    Queen is here to make a statement… Finally, maybe.. Probably not

    • Gato_wiska

      Queen of Statements and wonky contact lenses

      • mking2590

        Haha

  • The only thing I could see them doing with her on RAW is feuding with Nia. Anything else would be a waste of time and space on the RAW roster. “Emmalina” is coming soon, and it’s not like Tamina’s getting a Women’s Championship push anytime soon (no shade, but shade).

    • Gato_wiska

      she can be a filler feud for Sasha since they have history. Then after losing to Sasha she will align with her cousin.

  • brimode

    How much are we betting that she will be a bodyguard for Emmalina?

    • Gato_wiska

      Nah she will align with her Cousin

  • trishlita721

    I really like tamina I always have but I’d really like to see her on smackdown because raw already has nia who is kinda similar to tamina.

  • glassjaw

    I mean this with absolutely no disrespect but what, at this point in time, does Tamina have to offer the women’s division on RAW other than the fact, in being neither Charlotte nor Sasha, she feels like a fresh addition?

    • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

      She would offer SD nothing as well

      • Raekon

        Not really. At least they would use her properly on SD.
        In raw they will sell her as another “beast”, “one of the strongest women on the roster”, only to see her getting pinned by everyone and their grannys once again. -.-

        • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

          Like she should she’s almost 40

          • Age is just a number, darling.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Well darling when you’re 40 and done nothing in wrestling why would anybody think they would use her now

          • Their business, not yours. Age means nothing.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Well if I can’t give my opinion on this maybe you should stop giving your opinion on who should or shouldn’t be pushed I mean it’s their business not yours

          • As long as they want her employed, their problem. We can all complain about the pushes or not but it all ultimately comes down to them.

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Trust me I know y’all will complain about everything

          • #4HW / 3x time champ BO$$

            I don’t think age is factor, Taker still wrestles

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Please don’t compare taker and Tamina

          • #4HW / 3x time champ BO$$

            lol, im not comparing them… im comparing their respective “advanced” ages…

          • FaBuLoUs CaRmElLa FaN

            Undertaker comes back people want to see him and he makes th company money now if Tamina was the same I wouldn’t care but she’s not

          • Raekon

            So what? Discriminating much?

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    Looks like Rosa Mendes will be returning to Smackdown.

    • Raekon

      I hoped that both will go to SD.

    • Carolution

      tamina and rosa need to go to smackdown. rosa can grow on smackdown and hopefully be given storylines/matches.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        yes

  • Raekon

    Really hoped she will join SD and finally get into some fresh and nice storylines in which she can Showcase more of her in ring work, Segments and mic work.
    I really enjoyed her on the old NXT against Kaitlyn and her backstage stuff with Darren Young, the Usos and more back then.
    Even when the new nxt started in which she was a face and her small filler feud with Beth Phoenix were great.
    However, she was mainly used as a jobber most of her time and I really hoped that if she joins SD this will Change.
    On raw she will just lay down to Nia, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley and Emmalina again. :(

  • Seraphina Rosenhart

    It seems like Tamina is being rapackaged, like Emma was, because Tamina has been using the hashtag #PolynesianGoddess a lot. I really want to see a face Tamina vs a heel Nia Jax Feud.

  • Issac Gore

    Ok it’s really getting on my nerves hoe Raw is getting all the people who most likely will be feed to Charlotte Sasha and Bayley. If she does go to Raw they better pair her up with Nia

  • Dreignz

    Nia Jax vs Tamina

    • Gato_wiska

      Cousins should start as allies first before feuding

  • #4HW / 3x time champ BO$$

    Well, I’m kinda excited for Tina Snuka!

  • Exotic

    UGH
    She was the perfect fit for SD.

  • Diva_Fan

    I feel like she would have benefited so much more going Smackdown. She will only end up playing second fiddle to Nia on Raw as well as the 3 horsewomen

  • Billie Gay
  • TheG.O.A.T

    Tamina’s story is so inspiring. I’ve always wanted her to be booked as a threat but I know she won’t. Hopefully she’ll get a push she has a lot to offer.

  • What?

    It doesn’t matter whats going on on RAW or Smackdown, Tamina is awful.

  • ThePeaceVibe.

    Personally I would rather see her on Smackdown as she would probably get more opportunities there. Though it would be interesting if we ever get anywhere with the Nia/Sasha feud and Tamina aligned with Sasha again. I never see Tamina being champion, but she always has a place being an enforcer because she does rather well in that role. I don’t really understand all the hate she gets because she can be rather comedic.

  • Womensor

    All saying she has to go to Raw or Smackdown. I prefer to see her on both shows, beating Sasha and Naomi. She doesn’t care for shows, title… all she want is REVENGE!

  • conan_kun

    Why do Raw need more woman when Raw only care about Charlotte and Sasha making history while other women are irrelevant. And they can’t even find a spot for Emma when she’s already cleared for last 3 months.

  • howie_ruhl

    The only positive I see in this is that with Tamina on board, there is someone who can help Sasha move on from Charlotte as she builds credibility as a title holder in preparation for her seemingly inevitable title defense and transfer to Nia.

    Raw, because of its constant title switches has become harder to predict. But if WWE has any sense whatsoever they will let Sasha keep the title and move on from Charlotte. Then perhaps we can see a battle royale for the contendership. In it, maybe Bayley can eliminate Nia (sparking a feud between the two,) Charlotte can get eliminated because of miscue from Dana (which may start a feud between them) and Tamina as a new entry can win the damn thing while, preferably showcasing a few new moves.

    Then Tamina can return and leverage her now absolved Team Bad connection with Sasha to feud with her. Should all go well, perhaps Tamina can also build herself as a serious threat to the title by presenting better ring work and a revitalized moveset.

    This is just me throwing ideas out there.

  • Carolution

    she needs to go to smackdown since smackdown needs an imposing threat and tamina is that person.

  • Jonny

    Emmalina’s bodyguard. Bet ya!

  • Raleex2

    Tamina could feud a little while with Bayley, that could be an interesting development and build Tamina as a strong challenge. In fact she should defeat Bayley so they can continue with the Bayley character as the underdog and later Bayley could defeat her but just for once. It enhances both superstars and Tamina could finally run with Nia Jax as a powerful duo, that could eventually lead into the first Nia Jax title reign and the last, I don’t think Tamina or Nia Jax would be multiple time champions.

  • Anthony Gutierrez

    My only concern is that RAW has way too much muscle (Charlotte, Nia, and now Tamina). Although Tamina works best as a heel, im concerned about all the big women being heels and the small ones being babyfaces.
