In a recent interview with TheCoconetTVTamina talked about her family’s wrestling background, being the first female Polynesian Superstar in WWE, managing motherhood, and more.

On being the first female Polynesian Superstar: “It is humbling because it is something that’s much bigger than me. Because without those Polynesian warriors who put in the work, who broke down those barriers, who battled in the ring before me, there would be no Tamina Snuka. So when I put in the work, when I step in the ring, I always do my best to honor that tradition but it is always my responsibility to take it to the next level to pave the way for future Polynesian women.”

On getting into wrestling: “I feel like I was born to do this. I think at a very young age that’s when I fell in love with it. We were able to go to the wrestling matches and watch my father wrestle with other family members. It is a true blessing to be a generational wrestling and carry on the legacy my father has paved the way for me to do.”

On juggling motherhood with wrestling: “I have a really good support system and I’m really great friends with their dad and he helps me a lot too. That’s what mainly drives me and pushes me to live my dreams because not only am I doing it for myself, I’m doing it for my girls.”
