What makes this win extra special is it is the first women’s title that Tamina has won in her 11-year career with the company. Natalya is a former Divas Champion and SmackDown Women’s Champion. The new champions get emotional over their win on Talking Smack with Tamina giving her heartfelt thanks.
In her speech, Tamina thanks Natalya first and foremost for believing in her and being on her side. She then thanks her family including her children for sharing her with the WWE Universe and her father for showing her the beautiful business. She continues to thank the fans and the people behind the scenes. Putting it into words how much this means to her is something she says she can’t do.
Natalya then states that the championships aren’t just gold, they are passports to every single corner of the company and they represent the women’s division. No matter the brand, she states that they are putting everyone on notice.
