Tamina on WWE Active: “I’m Not Your Average Diva”

tamina wwe app

WWE Diva Tamina Snuka recently appeared in a WWE Active exclusive video and she was not pleased, to say the least.

The daughter of Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka was said to have demanded the time to address the fans (couldn’t she have demanded TV time?) and the self-proclaimed ‘Chaotic Exotic’ described last week’s Las Vegas Showgirls Lumberjill match as “a joke”.

Matt Striker then implied that Tamina takes offense to the typical Diva antics that go on in the division such as dressing up, to which Tamina replied: “Wouldn’t you take offence to that?”

The Samoan Princess then went on to state that the next time she faces off against Kaitlyn, the Divas Champion would “know the word fierce” before promising to “make a statement”.

    How many times is she gonna say “I’m here to make a statement”? I watched about three of her interviews and it goes something like:

    Hello, Tamina.
    Tamina: I’m here to make a statement.
    You look lovely in red, Tamina.
    Tamina; As I said, I’m here to make a statement.
    What’s your favorite #RockonRaw moment?
    Tamina: The one where he makes a statement, like in here to do.

    • LightsOut

      ”The one where he makes a statement” LMFAO

    • shameronstar

      Alicia Fox: Okay Tamina, are you ready to go with me on one of my Foxy Holidays!
      Tamina: I’m not going anywhere until I make a statement!

      • Mike in Like

        That was hilarious, she does overuse the line.

        Tamina what time is it?

        Tamina: It’s time for me to make a statement.

        Tamina, what’s the weather like?

        Tamina: Good weather for me to make a statement.

  • shaky209

    I’ve been watching Tamina since she had taken on Beth and even though Tamina gave Beth her best I think Tamina was surprised that it wasn’t enought.And now back from injury I think she rest to much on the fact that her last name is Snuka .She won’t have that Diva’s title till WWe says so.And lumberjill that I understand was a way to get them all on tv and get some pay.I don’t myself think right now Tamina is that great a worker.I do know that she’l one day be A great Diva’s champ.That I know doubt believe.I am anxious to see what she has in store for Kaitlyn maybe this is a start of a fantastic fued between Tamina and Kaitlyn to throught some attention to the Diva’s Division.But I think Tamina thinks more of herself then maybe WWE does.Her quote is there’s a big misunderstanding between her and WWE.Yeh right!.she might not understand things the way WWE does.anyways just my thinking.

    • jonboi

      The house reports say that tamina vs kaitlyn have been hard hitting & the best divas matches in a long while I can not wait for the feud I just hope the wwe pull there finger out and start already what are they waiting for!!

  • pumped up kicks

    Hopefully she follows thru on her threats!

  • Nostalgia

    Omg! Tamina and Aksana ambushed them on the way to the ring! When’s the last time that’s been done

    • puppies

      Yes, this commercial break is pissing me off, but that was awesome.

  • GPjessica73

    Isn’t this the same angle Beth had leading to forming the Divas of Doom? >_>
    Well, I hope it takes off this time….

  • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

    Well, one thing she can learn from an “average diva” is how to dress.

    • Corbin Matthew

      TRUTH

    • theprincedann

      By getting dresses0hat show as much skin as PG allows?

      Taminas outfits separate her from the rest.

      • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

        No, Dan, there are ways to wear a onesie without looking like a baked potato. She just has horrible fashion. I have a statement to make; Burn all of your outfits. Beth Phoenix didn’t show much skin and her outfits were awesome, neither did Tori, and she looked just fine.

  • Nostalgia

    I’m just going to pretend this is a discussion post for Main Event by myself

  • shannymac

    This is what they always have Tamina, and almost every other “strong woman” heel (Beth, Nattie, Melina, etc) say, and it’s so fucking annoying on multiple levels. They often never get to back up their words (Tamina has been trying to “make a statement” for like 2 or 3 months now), they get vilified for speaking the truth (that match WAS a damn joke) and the overall storyline is set up to make the rest of the Divas look ineffectual and silly (acting like any of those other women want to be standing around the ring in cheap ass costumes looking less like show girls and more like chickens dipped in food coloring).

    I would be totally here for a Kaitlyn vs Tamina feud, but not with the way things are going right now. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Kaitlyn has spoken a single word on TV since becoming champion. Tamina keeps getting a teeny little push one week, then she falls back to doing nothing the next week. Like, they have her talking about how badass she is, when she’s going to lose a match just a little bit later. How does WWE expect anyone to care about these women if they NEVER get any character development or continuity in their feuds?

    • jonboi

      You do know that tamina is just doing her job she’s saying what she’s told to say and as for her saying (she’s here to make a statment) she hasn’t been aloud to make this so called statment & we know who’s fault that is wwe as usal but at least there still keen to start this feud its just a case of when!!!!

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    Awesome, love Tamina such a good heel, and character, please let her be the star of the division :)

  • Nostalgia

    That was awesome

  • https://twitter.com/eh_stdepression She’sGotLegs!

    I know that last week’s Divas match/segment was the worst that we’ve seen in a while, but maybe in a way, it’s serving the purpose of adding more depth to Tamina’s character. I do agree with the fact that they’re trying to have her follow the same path Beth and Natalya did with the “anti cookie-cutter diva” path, but then again, maybe with Tamina, they’ll actually make it a success.

  • Nostalgia

    I’ll be rewatching it as soon as somebody uploads it on YouTube or daily motion in the next hour

  • Slapavel

    Omgggg! Did anyone see naomi in action? i think she did.really well

    • k2evecrew

      Yes I wish she got more time in the ring tonight though i almost thought they moved the match because they waited so long to have it.& I loved the fight they had backstage my whole family lol’d when Aksana called Niaomi Kofi.

  • k2evecrew

    Lets hope she makes a statement soon because this feud is starting to get boring. I’m happy at least one diva feels like how we do about last weeks raw.

  • ajfan83

    Tamina sucks. She’s very unattractive and can barely work. It seems like WWE’s only reason for pushing her is because she is Jimmy Snuka’s daughter. Maybe somebody should let them know that it’s 2013 and less than 5% of their audience even knows who Jimmy Snuka is. Nobody is popping for the Superfly anymore.

    • shaky209

      Me I know who SuperFly was.But he was a great worker.I do though agree that one she isn’t that attractive and can barely work.And here’s something else .It’s creative’s job to find as many ways to get as many workers that PPV pay which Diva’s didn’t get any time.So they did it Mondays Raw.Yeh and I think too there pushing her cause she’s Snuka’s daughter ..I don’t myself like her work it ain’t that great.She thinks more of herself then I think everyone else does.!

    • k2evecrew

      She’s the closest thing they have to a Beth Phoenix (after Natalya of coarse) because of her look & height. I think the original plan was for her to gain heat from feuding with AJ but since eve left earlier than expected they just kinda ended that feud & put her straight against kaitlyn & it’s just not working for her. I don’t think it’s cuz of her dad if that was the case then they would push Natalya again

    • shannymac

      She’s the only female “monster” heel they have left. Beth is gone and WWE is for some reason dead-set on never letting Nattie look credible again, so Tamina is basically it. She has a “bigger” physique (muscular and tall, not fat), can talk pretty well, and has an exotic look. Plus, she has an excellent bitch face.

      I agree that she’s not the best worker, but when is the last time WWE seemed to care about pushing Divas because of their in-ring skills?

    • Spike7000

      WWE has brainwashed you with their crap

      I hate when people use the word ”nobody” loosely when you don’t know what is going on

    • Raekon

      Funny how people always tend to say that she gets “pushed” because of her dad, even thought she never got a push.

      If what you are saying were true, she would had held the divas championship several times already and would be featured heavily like Raquel Diaz were since she put her foot on FCW (queen and champion with no ring skills at all).

      Since it wasn’t the case, your argument no matter how hard you try is not valid, nor does it make sense.

      Tamina jobbed her heart out and has deserved her spot, she can work better when she is given the chance but when they restrict you, you have to go by the rules and look the way the management wants you to look.

      The silliest part of your comment however is her “ugliness” you wanna put out there as a fact only because she doesn’t look like everyone else or has the typical Kelly look.

      Everyone has his/her likes/dislikes so if she is unattraktive to you, so be it.
      It doesn’t mean thought that everyone else finds her unattraktive too.

      To me she has a beautiful face which the new hairstyle compliments a lot.

      • AJFan95

        Your comment about her being restricted is all types of ridiculous. If so, how does Natalya continuously amaze people every time she wrestles with somewhat similar styles. Tamina just sucks in all aspects and it’s a shame, but please don’t make excuses for her or anyone else with these so-called “restrictions” lol.

      • theprincedann

        @Raekon

        I agree, I think she is beautiful :)
        Especially now, with the new haircut, it highlights her bone structure, and she looks phenomenal. She is one of the better Divas in the ring, and recently, I’ve started to become a Tamina fan. Not one of the other Divas interests me.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          Tamina is restricted like crazy..tamina vs beth at the house shows leading into their ppv match saw tamina lifting beth & showing what she can do but on tv only headbutts,clothesline,samoan drop & a splash is all wwe lets her do…
          nattie also does the same old stuff every match so how is it amazing to see her stuck with a limited move set….
          calling her ugly just shows you’re ugly on the inside..

          @Raekon couldn’t agree more with you…

        • AJFan95

          But that is not the issue. Tamina is just boring plain and simple and not to mention I have only been impressed while wrestling Beth and Natalya. She’s extremely awkward and every promo she cuts just comes across so forced.

          Natalya consistently shows how talented she is in any match she is in. I guess these restrictions don’t apply to her then lmao. Art, you shouldn’t be talking about being ugly on the inside. Your comments are the epitome of vile.

        • http://au.groups.yahoo.com/group/WWE_Divas/ art

          @AJFan95 i dont need to call people ugly so you’re ugly deal with it & most if not all are beyond stupid….tamina is boring now she used to get the crowd on her side in almost every match she had before injury….

  • puppies

    Off topic, but the ME match was pretty good. It was pretty much just to show off what the Funkadactyls can do. Aksana is starting to improve a lot. She had a pretty good spot with the sidewalk slam, and I like how she flipped into her crawl. Tamina didn’t do much, but she was shown as pretty dominant against Cameron, and since Naomi pinned Aksana she hasn’t lost any steam or credibility as a No.1 contender.

  • shameronstar

    Cameron was pretty good at acting out pain and suffering in the ring! It was almost as if she was really dying! Naomi is so athletic. You can tell she likes to be challenged physically! I really want to see the Funkadactyls wrestle more often because both can offer so much to the currently depleted division!

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    the match was really good, and i hope Naomi and Cameron both stay wrestling as a tag team around!!!!!!!!

    but back to the Tamina Video up here, i really like that she brought up the fact last weeks Raw divas match was a joke and she mentioned it numerious times and stating how they wanna remake the division type of thing

  • redsandman99

    The problem with Tamina making these kinds of statements is that she’s not really booked to back up her words (which was a problem that occured with Beth and Natalya when they were doing the Divas of Doom thing).

    • Raekon

      Totally agree.

      The little match that she took forever to go to the top rope having alicia wait like a whole day to get pinned on the mat did nothing and after that they totally dropped the ball again.

      They really need to put her in good competitive and hard hitting matches so she can showcase her power and dominance.

      Squash matches won’t do, akward matches “las vegas style”, won’t help either.

  • http://twitter.com/sieghrt sieghrt

    This is an off topic comment.
    Tamina looks really fierce and she gets fiercer as the WWE try to push her more, but every time I get to look at her, She gets to remind me of ANTM’s “Angelea Preston” (maybe a mature version of her)

    • Looking Glass

      YES! Oh my god now you’ve said it I totally see it.

      • http://twitter.com/sieghrt sieghrt

        Now all she needs to do is to make that my b*tch please interview thing similar to what Angelea did on ANTM :))

        • fahkyooh

          I see it too!

  • VelvetLoveFan

    When Aksana called Naomi Kofi.. I lost it and lmao! Hahah

    • k2evecrew

      Lol My whole family started dying when she said that

      • VelvetLoveFan

        Lol really that’s soo funny!

  • Looking Glass

    Ha this reminded me of the ‘not your average Samoan’ it’s pribably just the same script!

  • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

    Im not your average diva

    No shit Tamina…

    BUT!! If you notice, WWE doesn’t really have Barbies wrestling anymore. AJ is your mouse
    Kate your powerlifting tomboy kind of cool down to earth nonchalant chick, Natalya is well awesome, Naomi and Cameron your sexy dancing black girls, specially dig Naomi’s fine ass..
    And I guess Layla is your only Barbie like diva, yet she’s a great wrestler! And had the most experience and skill! :)
    Dammit! I love Face Layla! She’s an awesome good guy!! The only Barbie the English Egyptian Barbie!
    (correct me if I’m wrong, she’s Egyptian too no?)
    And aksana the mail (Male) ordered bride from Lithuania but incredibly strong! Just not as skilled

    Divas now aren’t really skinny slutty Barbies anymore :)
    And if they look like barbies, they kick butt!

    • puppies

      I think Layla is Spanish and Moroccan but I’m not 100% sure, but she’s beautiful whatever she is.

      • http://twitter.com/RyanRoman0 Ryan

        Oh that’s right! Moroccan-English! Thanks my dude! :D
        Yeah she’s a beauty!! She’s awesome!

  • flash1086

    And than, she’s gonna job to a diva the next night. lol. Its like the divas of doom who were supposed to look strong only to job to barbies like Kelly and Eve. Even Trish and Lita were pissed about that.

  • VarsityBaseDude

    Really Tamina? You eat cereal for dinner sometimes? Yeah, the average Diva does not do that. LOL I do hope something comes out of it for her though. She looks like the toughest Diva WWE has currently.
