With a father like WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka, Tamina’s knack for climbing the turnbuckle and punishing her opponents is a nod to the type of dazzling aerial offense her dad made famous. First aligning herself with Jimmy & Jey Uso, this second-generation competitor made a literal splash during her WWE debut in May 2010, when she led a top-rope assault on “the first family of sports-entertainment,” The Hart Dynasty. Jumping to SmackDown in 2011 as part of the Supplemental Draft, Tamina immediately made her presence known on Friday nights.
