WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Natalya wants a match with Beth Phoenix.
Speaking with Fightful, Natalya spoke about her former tag partner. She said while she loves teaming with Phoenix, she’d need to find a partner and wrestle her first. She said:
“Beth Phoenix isn’t going to have an opportunity to be my tag team partner without having to go through me first. If Beth Phoenix wants to find a partner, Tamina and I are ready, willing and waiting. I absolutely love teaming with Beth. She’s one of my best friends and favorite humans. one of the best people on the planet. I’ve never been involved in a tag team match against Beth Pheonix for the Women’s Tag Team Championships, so if Beth wants to lace up the boots and take on myself and Tamina Snuka and find a partner, she can do that first. I’d be happy to welcome to any competition, especially the best in the world like Beth Phoenix.”
Natalya and Beth Phoenix have history dating back to 2011 when they teamed as the Divas of Doom. This was long before WWE had women’s tag belts but if they had them then one would have to think they would have won them.
The duo last competed as a team at WrestleMania 35 where they lost a four-way match to The Iiconics.
Phoenix recently said she would like to get back in the ring. You can read more about that here.
