Following on from her duel outing at WrestleMania 37, Tommy Dreamer has declared Tamina a “top babyface” in WWE.
On night one of WWE’s flagship spectacular Tamina and her partner Natalya, overcame The Riott Squad, Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose, Naomi and Lana and Carmella and Billie Kay to earn a shot at the Women’s Tag Team Titles.
The following night, the new Number One Contenders met Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler attempting to capture the titles for the very first time.
The match swung back and forth with Natalya picking up a nasty looking injury to her mouth, before the champions managed to see off the spirited challengers.
However, one of the more notable aspects of the match wasn’t the action inside the ring, but the reaction of the fans. After receiving a favourable reception on night one, Tamina earned the biggest crowd reaction of any women in the match on night two by far. Her ‘hot tag’ from Natalya was greeted with a very loud cheer, while he body slam on Jax later in the match earned a thunderous ovation.
Writing on social media after the match, Tommy Dreamer commented on the crowd’s reaction. The ECW legend remarked that every top wrestler will tell you to listen to your audience, and by that measure Tamina is a “top babyface” in WWE.
