Tamina and Natalya have put the Smackdown Women’s locker room on notice, claiming to have gone from reliable to undeniable.
Speaking backstage after their victory over The Riott Squad on SmackDown, Natalya and Tamina were asked if they believe they’re now in line for a Tag Team Championship opportunity. Tamina quick to answer:
Listen, no one is ever going to tell us what our worth is. Do you understand me? We went from reliable to undeniable. Do you understand that?
Natalya then interjected, claiming she’s no longer going to be the star walking around smiling backstage and being taken for granted. Reiterating the threat made by Tamina, Natalya warned the Tag Team division, which includes current champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler.
Do you understand that? Now you look like a really nice girl, a girl who smiles a lot backstage. I know all about women that smile a lot. I used to be one of those women that walked around acting like everything was fine.
Well, nothing is okay anymore. We are tired of being women that get taken for granted, with smiles on our faces. We understand our history. We understand our legacy. Quite frankly, I don’t want to be a person that my grandfather would like.
I’ve walked around here for way too long with a smile on my face and violence on my mind. No one is going to tell us what our worth is ever again. Just like Tamina said, they should consider themselves warned.
A Women’s Tag Team Championship Match has been confirmed for the Elimination Chamber PPV. Champions, Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax, will defend their gold against SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks and Royal Rumble winner Bianca Belair this weekend.
Are Natalya and Tamina next in line to challenge the winners? Will the Women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winners (Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez) have something to say about it? Things are hotting up as we journey on the road to WrestleMania 37.
