Unlike her previous battles with Kelly Kelly or Eve Torres, it seems Divas Champion Beth Phoenix is being complimentary of her fallen opponent Tamina Snukaat last night’s Elimination Chamber pay per view.
Beth stated via Twitter that she was “impressed” with the second generation Diva’s effort, while Tamina responded that it was a “dream come true” to face the Glamazon.
At this rate Beth Phoenix may just be the Divas Champion forever.
The Glamazon proved to be immune to Tamina Snuka‘s Superfly Splash, kicking out of the pinfall and taking home the victory with an almighty Glam Slam.
In a good back and forth match, both Divas shone, but it was Tamina, who has had limited ring time thus far, who showed a marked improvement in the ring and really hung in there well with the multiple time champion.
What did you think of the match?
The battle between Diva giants Beth Phoenix and Tamina Snuka tomorrow night at WWE’s Elimination Chamber pay per view has certainly got fans talking. However, it’s not just the fans who are excited for this bout: 7-time WWE Women’s Champion and legendary former Diva, Trish Stratus, is also going to be at home tomorrow night eager to watch the highly-anticipated Divas Championship match.
Speaking to Diva Dirt Live (interview airs Monday at 8pm ET) about the DVD release of her debut movie, Bounty Hunters, we picked Trish’s brain for her thoughts on Beth vs Tamina.
The 7-time Women’s Champion told us: “First of all, I’m super excited about this match. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Tamina. I think when I first saw her, her and [Natalya] really had a chance to go at it. I thought that was really exciting and I wanted to see, eventually, the two of them branch off [from] the tag team action they had going on at the time and branch off into singles [matches], but we didn’t get to see as much as we would’ve liked.”
“So now, I hope this is an opportunity to watch Tamina in action a little bit more.”
As for Beth? Trish says: “I think we’re going to see a strong showing from Beth Phoenix. I think she’s on a roll now, and I think this is the kind of momentum she’s going to need going into WrestleMania.”
Tamina has been on quite the roll as of late, and now she’s got a Divas Championship shot to show for it.
On tonight’s Raw, it was announced that this Sunday at the Elimination Chamber PPV, Tamina will take on Divas Champion Beth Phoenix with the title on the line.
The two Divas haven’t exchanged much more than stares and smiles thus far, but they will finally lock horns this Sunday. Will Tamina’s run of good fortune continue?
