Tamina is a famous WWE superstar and she is known for her work last year after being overlooked for many years. She recently revealed who she believes is the ‘Roman Reigns’ of the women’s wrestling division in WWE.
Tamina received title shots at Money in the Bank and at WrestleMania. Even though she didn’t win any title, she definitely performed well enough to get noticed by many fans. She recently spoke to ViBe and Wrestling and gave the names of the female wrestlers that she believes are like Roman Reigns in the women’s division.

“If you wanna go for the Polynesian side of it, I have to say that I am the ‘Roman Reigns’ because it’s not Nia for sure, definitely not Nia,” Tamina said.
“If you wanna talk outside of the Polynesian culture, the ‘Roman Reigns’ of the women’s locker room both Raw and SmackDown, maybe Charlotte. I would say probably Charlotte at this point. She came back and she definitely got something on her head.
She is coming back for something and definitely wants to prove who she is. She came out and put everybody on the spot and she addressed all the locker room, so I would have to say maybe Charlotte right now”. As she is the daughter of the famous Jimmy Snuka, most of her moves are inspired by her father.
Jimmy was a high risk, high flying wrestler. However, Tamina did not use the top rope splash that her father used for most of his career. She only used it one at WrestleMania. “It’s something that I am always saving,” Tamina said.
“I got to save that splash for that time at that moment, and that’s why when I did it at WrestleMania. The first time I and Natalya won [was at Mania] and for that time, for that epic moment it had to be the splash, it couldn’t be anything else but the splash.
When we wrestled against Nia and Shayna the next night it was one of those when I thought, ‘There is no way. I am winning with the splash,’ but Nia moved. Fans were so behind that splash. It’s something that has been so epic since my father first did it.
It’s one of those things when I do it I want it to mean something and I want it to be special. That’s why I picked and I chose when I do the splash and when I know that is going to be the right time for it. In my mind, I am winning because there is no way anyone is kicking out of that splash”.
