Tamina made a statement this week! On Monday Night RAW, Tamina competed in a singles match against Brie, a match that was booked by Stephanie McMahon and favored Tamina since only AJ was allowed to be at ringside. The leather-wearing bodyguard put on a great match against Brie Bella. When it looked as though Tamina was going to lose the match, Tamina countered the Bella Buster and nailed Brie with a huge big boot for the win. After the match, Tamina gave Brie a post-match beat down that gave AJ the perfect opportunity to lock in the Black Widow to add more salt to Brie’s wounds. STATEMENT MADE! I was impressed with Tamina’s performance on RAW. She picked up a win over Brie in a match that made her look like a dominant force to be reckoned with. I also felt that Tamina’s alliance with AJ shined on RAW as well, especially during the post-match beat down on Brie. When I originally say Tamina and AJ together as allies, I had my doubts about it and did not think it was going to work out. However, I can honestly say that I was wrong. Tamina and AJ’s alliance has been a lot better than I expected. Tamina as AJ’s bodyguard gives her more TV time, gives her a chance to show off her wrestling skills more often, and adds more depth to her heel character.
“M.V.D. – Most Valuable Diva” is a weekly column where a WWE Diva or TNA Knockout is named the Most Valuable Diva of the Week based on their overall performance. The divas/knockouts that compete in matches and/or take part in segments automatically get nominated for Most Valuable Diva.
This week’s nominees for M.V.D. are:
Kaitlyn: On RAW, Kaitlyn faced Tamina in a Vegas Showgirls Lumberjill Match. The match honestly was quite disappointing, and it ended abruptly after the divas got in the ring and started fighting each other. Luckily, what happens in Vegas, STAYS in Vegas.
Tamina: On RAW, Tamina faced Kaitlyn in a Vegas Showgirls Lumberjill Match. The match honestly was quite disappointing, and it ended abruptly after the divas got in the ring and started fighting each other. We did get to see a post match staredown between Tamina and Kaitlyn though…
