The rivalry between Nia Jax and Tamina is heating up.
At WrestleMania 37, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler successfully defended their WWE Women's Tag Team Titles against Natalya and Tamina. Two days later, Nia and Tamina began arguing online after Jax shared a picture of their match and said that no one is going to steal her spotlight. Tamina replied and said that she doesn't want the spotlight, only to learn the business and earn the respect of the fans and those within it.
On the April 16 edition of SmackDown, Natalya defeated Shayna Baszler in singles competition for the second time this month. After the bell, Jax attempted to attack Natalya but was intercepted by a Tamina superkick. The Tweeting began again shortly thereafter, with Nia saying that she never thought a Title would mean more than their bond.
Today, Jax seemed to have reached her boiling point, posting the following message:
"I’m so sick of trying to be humble and hold my tongue. It really be your own family that is quick to stab you in the back. People may not know, but @TaminaSnuka is loved and respected by fans and most importantly by our family! I am the black sheep/outcast, the embarrassment.
I stopped trying to gain any approval from the family a long time ago, I realized it was pointless. The only one I thought I could count on is @TaminaSnuka. I was wrong. My partner @QoSBaszler has been there more for me in this business than my family has. That’s the truth!
F*ck this family shit! “They say blood is thicker than water, but I remember plenty of times when water was there & blood wasn’t!”
Jax and Tamina had a match on the April 9 episode of SmackDown, but just as Tamina looked ready to pick up the win following a Samoan Drop, Shayna Baszler entered the ring and caused a disqualification.
Natalya and Tamina, despite losing at WrestleMania, believed they were robbed and remain at the front of the line for those Women's Tag Team Titles.
