On this week’s Friday Night SmackDown, Tamina & Natalya picked up a win against the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax. This time they won as a team, but the past two weeks have seen Natalya pick up a singles win on Shayna Baszler while Tamina has taken down her cousin Nia Jax.
The team of Tamina & Natalya came just short of winning the tag team titles at WrestleMania and are perhaps the team closest to taking down the champions. The duo appeared on this weekend’s Talking Smack and Tamina had some words to say.
“I don’t even need to really address Shayna. You may be a great mixed martial artist but I’ve got the dungeon on my side and nobody beats that sharpshooter, you hear what I’m saying?
But now I’m gonna sit here and I’m gonna address you Nia, Sis. You have disrespected me. And you may not think I know what I’m doing, but I have come here with passion. I don’t care if you may have been here, and you think that you know better than me but you don’t.
This is our place. Do you hear me? Do you feel my passion?”
Tamina then stormed of the set with Natalya saying she was going to go check on her to make sure she was okay.
At this time there is not a championship for the tag titles booked yet for WrestleMania Backlash but if one does get booked it looks likely that Tamina & Natalya will be a part of it.
The team was also on The Bump where Natalya said some further words of encouragement and hopes to continue a push for Tamina to win her first championship.
In addition, on SmackDown was a six-person tag team match to boost towards SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Bayley at WrestleMania Backlash. Belair teamed with the Street Profits facing Bayley and the SmackDown Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode. Montez Ford would pick up the pin and the win for his team.
