WWE recently uploaded an exclusive video in which Natalya and Tamina receive their titles with their custom side plates. As seen in the video, Tamina gets very emotional as she talks to the camera and others around her. Replying to the tweet, The Rock’s daughter, Simone Johnson, made another touching revelation.

New WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion, Tamina, face timed Simone Johnson immediately after shooting the exclusive. She detailed Tamina held up the title, showing its side plates. In addition, she also revealed it was the purest and most exciting expression she has ever seen on Tamina’s face.

We can only imagine how happy Tamina might have been when she face timed Simone. It wasn’t an easy road to the top for her. Despite being the daughter of a WWE Hall of Famer, Tamina never had it easy in the WWE.

This time, she snatched the opportunity and made sure she capitalizes big time. Guess what? She did!

The innocence in the new Champion also shows in the exclusive video uploaded by WWE. She literally asks how to hold the title as she has never had the experience to hold one before. Imagine. Over a decade in the company, and now is the time she finally holds gold. Our hearts go out to the new Champ and wish she and Natalya have a long and fun title-reign.
