Kaitlyn vs Tamina at Elimination Chamber

tamina-kaitlyn

WWE has announced Kaitlyn will defend the Divas Title against Tamina Snuka at Sunday’s Elimination Chamber pay per view.

The pair have been feuding in recent weeks since Kaitlyn became champion.

Tamina challenged Beth Phoenix for the title at last year’s Elimination Chamber.

    Yay! Angelea Preston vs. Kaitlyn for the title.
    I hope that this better be one hell of a match (though i am not really expecting much from the wwe)

  • MickieFan226

    I had no idea these two were even “feuding”…

    Have I missed something or has WWE just put no effort in as usual?

    • LightsOut

      The second one. (:

  • jen07201

    They have been facing off in live events. I hope they put on a good match.

    • http://www.facebook.com/traci.hearin.voices.peebles Traci

      Yea i agree with you. But i hope they put more focus on Tamina. She’s such a good wrestler but to me i feel like the prasie the crappy ones more than the ones that know what the hell there doing.

  • ssilva872

    Glad the match has been made however WTF with the WWE putting ZERO effort into the match?

    Of course that could change tomorrow night but I doubt it would be much more than just a squash match win for Tamina [Alicia?]..

  • Spike7000

    They had a segment on the WWE App where Vickie made the match then both got into a fight

    • LightsOut

      Just saw it, the fight was really well done, but it could’ve been better with the crowd reactions.

      • k2evecrew

        I was wondering why it was so quiet compared to the other backstage fights something just didnt feel right

    • Ed

      Anyone got a link where I can watch this online? I absolutely refuse to download the WWE app.

      • Ed

        Never mind. I saw it.

    Oh cool.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    excited, we all know Kaitlyn will retain, i kinda hope Tamina gets the title

    the backstage fight was awesome, Tamina was unreal and so so heel, i LOVE it :)

    and she pretty much called kaitlyn out saying you dont deserve to be here, u havent trained as hard as much as me, u were in the company a short time and go on tv and won the title

  • Choko

    I don’t care for these 2.

    There are better womens wrestlers who can work the mic better in WWE like Alicia Fox, Natalya, Layla and AJ Lee. So I don’t get why we’re getting these 2 mediocre ones in a match. I attended a live event about a month ago and saw their match. It was hard hitting but awful story telling and both girls looked lost at times. They better have imptoved their chemistry. And please give us AJ vs Kaitlyn at Mania with AJ winning the title and Kaitlyn never winning it back.

      took the words right out of my mouth.

  • charovnica

    LOL who cares about the match now?They missed every chance to hype it…no Kaitlyn the last few times,I won’t be surprised if people have forgotten who’s the champ.

    • http://unicornduchess07.tumblr.com hellaciousheart

      to me the championship has been vacated. i am actually paying attention to the superstars instead of the divas.

  • charovnica

    I just wanna point out how freaking stunning Tamina’s face look on this photo! Hope for a decent match..

  • Raekon

    So they will either have Tamina being a filler like in Beths case back then or they will strip Kaitlyn from a belt she barely had on at all.

    Either way a shitty situation that goes on the account of the WWE management again.

    Making Kaitlyn totally dissappear and be only in houseshows wont help the division nor will it to have so called “feuds” without any build up except of a staredown or two.

    These writers and the wwe management failed once again by setting the divas to the backburner so they can fill up their show with advertisements “raw rebounds, sd rebounds” and useless talking of CM Punk, Cena and the Rock eating tons of time away from the show only so they can boost their Egos 24/7.

    They had the chance to make a proper feud out of this and more than enough time in all these weeks but noooooo, let’s put them in a like 2 minutes divas championship match in the PPV as a filler and all is “good”.

    Sick and tired of all this really.

    • stratagias@gmail.com

      Totally agree…

    • charovnica

      To be fair,ever since wrestling started getting so popular the main guys always had more time.It’s not Punk,nor Rock’s fault that WWE can’t properly manage those 3 hours.Austin & Rock were getting like 20 minute promos each show and the divas were still having a decent amount of time.It’s not about their egos.Punk is actually pro women’s wrestling

      • Raekon

        I wrote a proper reply, I clicked on add comment and then the site tells me that I need to be logged in so I can post a comment. *sigh* –__–

        Anyway, as you can see I blamed it mainly to the management, not punk or rock. Just took them as example since these guys are the most featured and getting to talk A LOT.

        Also don’t mind them when they do and it has a real meaning but in the meantime its rather as if they would compare their “ding dongs” 24/7, which is getting tiring and is a waste of time.

        Past WWE Employees already confirmed that the Divas are not allowed to outshine any Superstars and thats why I added the “Ego” in my comment.

        I don’t know for how long you are watching the WWE programming but quite a few years ago they were showing highlights of a feud which took aways 1-2 minutes, instead of having these so called “rebounds” that are showing a whole match or two, eating away at least 10-20 minutes from each show (Raw, SD, NXT, Superstars).

        It’s as if soooooo many other people would watch the other shows, that would had missed what happen to raw.

        So they have to show every single detail (well the whole thing) across all shows, wasting everyones viewing time.

        Example:

        -Case 1 in the past: “Cena was attacked by Kane after his match against X Superstar”, highlights roll, he gets attacked, done deal.

        -Case 2 now: “Cena had this 9 minutes match”, ooooh now look what also happened AFTER the match (another blend in), Cena gets attacked, the camera goes here and there after the attack and the whole thing keeps rolling for several minutes.

        Result:
        – case 1 took 2 to 3 minutes max

        – case 2 has eaten 12-15 minutes out of the show

        Lets say the highlights that are supported by the commentators anyway are getting 3 minutes.

        This leaves 12 minutes free that could be invested to offer more to the audience in form of the Divas and their Mid, Low Card.

        – Divas match 4 minutes
        – Mid card 4 minutes
        – Low card 4 minutes

        and you already offer 3 more matches per show with a decent amount of time.

        Wanna spice it up?

        Make two matches out of the time so you can add an advertisement that brings in cash for like 30 seconds to 1 minute, then make a backstage segment or two that lasts 2 minutes (like the one tamina and kaitlyn just had that took even less than 2 minutes).

        This way they have enough time for all the talent and give their audience a good show that includes all the parts of their roster.

        • charovnica

          I’ve been watching WWE for more than a decade and I now understand where are you coming from.I agree that the management and editing are not doing their best to show off all the divisions with these 2-3 useless Fandango promos or the “moments ago” & rebounds things.However,I think this will change only when Vince is gone as a chairman.I strongly believe that HHH will make drastic changes if he gets the power to do so.He showed that in the few Raws he was in charge of.He has fresh ideas,so we’ll see.

        • Raekon

          I hope you are right cause even in the shows he had the control over, these rebounds kept going strong so I think that the real problem is actually the people in the marketing department and the management.

          Vince seems to have the wrong people behind these seats cause from what I saw so far, they are using these rebounds and other stuff so they can cut things like this segment between Kaitlyn and Tamina from the main shows (which would actually matter more since more people would see it and due to that the ppv would had benefited more too), so they have more material for their APPs, Active and all the other “Net Based” things they are running and planning to have on the “WWE Network” deal they are working towards to.

          What they fail to see is that they are cutting their main shows in the flesh instead of helping their network through it.

          To make their network actually work they need to put up fresh, new stuff there like the tout things instead of filling them with stuff that should be on the main shows.

          Seriously, I don’t mind to see the rock playing his guitar like 30 minutes in raw talking crap left and right if it helps his feud and people like it (as example).

          However, repeating the whole thing in smackdown, superstars and nxt that are shows with 1 to 2 hours time max is definately out of place and makes people to wanna switch the channel and watch something else for that time or not tune in at all anymore.

    Tamina looks stunning in that picture too bad she can’t find an attire to fit her amazing body….
    no one will care for this match & im hoping vickie cheats kaitlyn out of the title since a heel needs to be champion & tamina is the only heel that’s a threat….

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

      wwe.com/videos/kaitlyn-is-attacked-wwe-app-exclusive-26091185
      tamina banked kaitlyn i hope tamina does the same to kaitlyn at EC

      • DivaDestiny

        Me too. I loved the fight and I think Tamina was well-spoken this time around. It didn’t sound so corny and she actually “made a statement” this time. :p
        On another note, I still love Tamina’s hair straight and she looked good in the leather. She should dress like that more often. It fits her.

    • Raekon

      Actually if the attire she has on the picture were only a top and she had pants or shorts of the same design, it would complimate her body and would look much better than the whole bodysuit that makes her look like a sack of potatos that got rolled over some christmas paper at times. :/

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

        @DivaDestiny thats what i thought how good tamina was dressed & how she actually had some thing to say that wasn’t the same stuff we’ve heard from her…..

        @Raekon ROFL sack of potatoes wrapped in chrismas paper lol…
        if it was shorts & a singlet type design it would look killer on tamina so i agree & hopefully she goes with that for the ppv….

        • Raekon

          Hope that too! ^_^

  • jonboi

    Have to laugh at them feuding for the last few weeks WHERE???? Iv not seen them on tv unless u call taminas wwe interactiveon tv

  • k2evecrew

    I guess kaitlyn not being on tv is to help futher their feud . I just hope something crazy happens at EC even if Vickie would come out talking crap to kaitlyn because I doubt the average fan will care about the match because of the minimal build up.

  • DJ8946

    At least they explain why she wasn’t on TV. Now yes it is ridiculous that they weren’t on 2 RAWs but, Im not going to bitch about them getting no build up & wasn’t even going to watch next weeks RAW until I saw the backstage fight & annoucement. Im going to be happy about it & support the Divas.

    • eyecon

      100% agree if we’re all true Diva fans all we can do is support. Instead of complaining about lack of build up, lets be glad there’s a match for the title on PPV. The backstage segment was fine and hopefully they do something else on SD but if not I’ll enjoy and support the match this Sunday #lets goTamina

  • Jamal

    Another hastily thrown together women’s match with little to no build-up that will barely garner a crowd reaction! Yay! Sigh.

  • Gail-Trish-Brooke

    I can’t wait till The Rock goes away so this Tamina push will die.

    Kaitlyn and Eve had the most crowd support going out of any Divas feud in the last 2 years, and WWE has completely KILLED that momentum. They could of easily turned Layla heel, and had that storyline could of written itself. Nobody cares about Tamina.

    And Layla as a heel knows how to really get a reaction.

    • AJFan95

      Totally agree! Tamina is the epitome of lackluster. Let’s get to AJ/Kaitlyn now.

    • http://cmpunkscrazychick.tumblr.com xoxoRKOxoxo

      I forget all of the time that Tamina comes from the same heritage ans Rock, I don’t mind Tamina, she could be made into this really good heel, a brawler type girl, but she is horrible on the mic, but giving her a mouth piece wouldn’t be a bad idea!!!!

    • flash1086

      You do realise that wrestling sucked so bad that they had no choice but to bring The Rock back right? Dont blame him. Blame it on Punk who whines every week and cant get rating or Cena who only sells tickets to kids. The wwe is lacking a Hogan, Rock or Austin.

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

        wwe made punk whiney because every heel is a wussy now…

        • flash1086

          Even when Punk was babyface, he still didnt sell more tickets. The ratings were getting worse.

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

          he was being buried by cena all the time..the ratings problem is using cena for everything the constant replays are the problem…i like the rock but i dont think hes going to help long term…

  • Choko

    I think you all are forgetting that WrestleMania is in AJ’s hometown, WWE are not stupid enough to drop her in her hometown, they could bank on her popularity for this event. It would be a crime not to feature her.

    I don’t think we’ll be getting a return match from Kaitlyn and Tamina.

    • KaitlynLover<3

      Yes it is AJ´s hometown, but most of the people that will attend the show are not even from there! Do you know the amount of people around the world that travel just to watch wrestlemania?

    • puppies

      We’re expecting them to, but with the E’, they’ll probably have AJ as Dolph’s valet for his WHC match and nothing more.

  • KaitlynLover<3

    I don´t understand why they didnt put a photo of Kaitlyn with the title :/

    Anyways, I´m excited for the match, and I hope they have a good amount of time!

  • AJKaitlynFan

    All I See Is Tamina Getting A Shot Because She Attacked Kaitlyn Because We All Know She Didn’t Earn It and Vickie Needs To Get Rid Of The Past Thats Why She’s So Against Kaitlyn Oh You Offend Me Everyday Wow That’s Stupid Vickie’s Just Jealous Of Kaitlyn Because Kaitlyn Better Looking Then Her.

    • puppies

      I Agree And Wrestling Is Real

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

        ROFLMAO…dies..

      • http://unicornduchess07.tumblr.com hellaciousheart

        lol puppies just killed!

    • Crazy_J

      I wish I could still look at wrestling that way…

  • HeelEveRulez

    I am sorry but i dont think Kaitlyn will drop the title.I wish she would…To me she doesnt have any charisma her dropkicks suck and she changes finisher every week.Did i skip anthing oh yeah she gets lost everytime i see her and only thing i cared about was Eve whole the time.I dont think Kaitlyn nor Tamina should hold title and Tamina needs to find another finisher.I dont see this WM anything good or a Aj vs Kaitlyn.They didnt even turn Layla heel seriously!I think it is gonna be another throw up at WM like Kaitlyn and Layla/Natalya vs Tamina and Aj.Sigh…

  • http://unicornduchess07.tumblr.com hellaciousheart

    at this point the divas are just bleh to me (excluding aj) i am waiting for paige and summer raes debut .

  • eyecon

    wwe.com has a video of Tamina and Kaitlyn getting into a fight back stage in Vickie’s office. Its very good in my opinion

  • redsandman99

    Show the fight on Smackdown and have some sort of tag match. Or something on Main Event and Smackdown. Then at the ppv have someone attack Kaitlyn after the match (can’t see Tamina with the title). Don’t care if it’s AJ, Layla or someone debuting. Someone attacking Kaitlyn would at least start a new storyline.

  • SweeneyTodd

    “The pair have been feuding in recent weeks since Kaitlyn became champion”

    Joke of the day…

    What will happen? Kaitlyn will win clean and Tamina will be nowhere like this before. Tamina is 35 and to serious for the soap and optics divas wwe.
