Tamina Snuka, who has been working for WWE since 2010, finally got her hands on her first title with the company, 11 years after signing a deal with the company.
The 43-year-old teamed with Natalya to dethrone the WWE Women’s Tag Team champions Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax last night on Smackdown on FOX. The ending came as Jax hit a Samoan Drop on Natalya but before Jax managed to get up, Tamina hit her with a Superfly Splash.
Both Tamina and Natalya were emotional in their post-match in-ring interview with Kayla Braxton. Natalya said that tonight was for those who had a dream and thought that their dream has passed them by. Tamina thanked the WWE fans, her family, and Natalya for believing in her.
Tamina was a surprise favorite at WrestleMania, with fans inside the Raymond James Stadium firmly behind the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy Snuka during the tag team title match.
