A lot of people weren’t too fond of Tamina when she debuted, but as soon as I saw her in the ring and besides how beautiful I think she is, I was all over her.
I mean, a new female face in the division who isn’t all about flipping hair and wearing these tiny tight outfits to show off her body was exciting to me.
The Divas division is lacking to the point where we have Laycool competing with The Beautiful People of TNA. There should be no competition but honestly speaking, TNA’s female division is more diverse and we see a lot more of them than we do with the WWE.
Tamina wasn’t in many matches when she debuted, often being squashed by Natalya (which I don’t mind because I love me some Natalya) or just simply accompanying the Usos to the ring. I didn’t mind that but she looked like she could hold her own in the ring and slowly, we started to see that.
Then what happens? She abandons the Usos and gets into a storyline relationship with Santino. I figured she would become a valet like Natalya was in the beginning and womp, there goes her career.
But then again, pairing her up with Santino wasn’t such a bad idea after I really thought about it. She’s slowly turning into a face and although I don’t mind because it would help her get over with the fans, I do prefer her as a heel. The same with Natalya as well.
Diva heels outnumber diva faces but frankly, heels are more entertaining to me. Well, I mean if you’re not Kelly Kelly or Gail Kim? The reason I put a question mark is because I’m not sure I should even mention Gail Kim. She’s been so irrelevant, sadly.
But anyway, I say get Tamina over with the fans, turn her heel again and have her feud with Natalya again.
The question is, should it be for the belt? I say yes and no. No because that belt isn’t enough for the looks of Tamina, Natalya, Beth Phoenix, and the newcomer Awesome Kong.
But it’s what we have to work with so that’s why I say yes. Tamina is new, fresh, and different. Her bloodline speaks for itself, so please, someone tell me why she doesn’t deserve a push when the time is right? Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
