In one of the most feel good moments of the year, Natalya and Tamina defeated Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship on the May 14 edition of SmackDown.
The current Women’s Tag Team Champions recently appeared on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast, where they discussed the formation of their team, as well as the backstage reaction to their big title win.
“I had no idea that Bayley rallied the troops and got all the girls into Gorilla during our match the night we won the titles. Every girl in the locker room, no matter what role, was there and they were jumping up and down. TJ said the girls created a fan-like environment in Gorilla when we won the titles where even Vince was like, ‘Holy shit.’ The girls are ride or die. We’ve all grown close to each other and want to give and see each other succeed.”
Perhaps more interestingly, Natalya appeared to hint at the identity of the next Women’s Tag Team Champions, saying:
“I had a little guilt winning the titles because as much as I felt like we deserved it, especially Tamina, I also look at Ruby and Liv. They’re the longest-formed tag team in WWE and we want them to have a chance and a moment. I’m super excited about competing against Ruby and Liv because they are two of the best in the division. In us winning, it’ll also be part of their success. We know how to pay it forward.”
Natalya and Tamina defeated the Riott Squad in a non-title match on SmackDown (May 28), after which Ruby and Liv cut a promo talking about regrouping so they can get the titles.
