The latest character reboot for longtime WWE Superstars Natalya and Tamina is set to really work this time, sources inside WWE's creative team undoubtedly believe. In a backstage interview conducted after WWE Smackdown last night, Natalya and Tamina revealed that they're tired of not being taken seriously, and now, after nearly 25 years combined in the company, they're finally going to do something about it.
"Listen. No one is ever going to tell us what our worth is," said Tamina in the interview. "Do you understand me? We went from reliable to undeniable. Do you understand that?"
"You understand that?" Natalya reiterated. "Do you understand that, Alyse? Now, you look like a really nice girl. A girl who smiles a lot backstage. And I know all about women that smile a lot. I used to be one of those women that walked around acting like everything was fine. Well, nothing is OK anymore. We are tired of being women that get taken for granted with smiles on our faces."
"We understand our history. We understand our legacy," she continued. "And quite frankly, I don't want to be a person that my grandfather would like. I've walked around here for way too long with a smile on my face and violence on my mind, and no one is ever going to tell us what our worth is ever again. Just like Tamina said: they should consider themselves warned."
With a promo like that, it's certain that these Superstars will begin a new, more relevant phase of their careers starting next week on WWE Smackdown. Another thing that's clear is that this is far more than some bullshit promo that no one will remember when Natalya and Tamina go back to being lower card jobbers to the stars. No, this is the start of a brand new era for Nayalya and Tamina. They said so!
