Nikki ASH and Tamina faced off last night on Raw as part of their rivalry over the WWE Women’s Team Championship which Rhea Ripley and Natalya also enter. The fight was normal until the end, when the Scottish fighter applied DDT Tornado to the Samoan and looked for the count of three. The monarch was able to get by but the referee still gave the last slap on the canvas. And if the situation weren’t confusing enough, Snuka’s music was performed and she was announced as the winner.
Ouch, that was a big mess. Tamina comes out but the referee still has three. Tamina’s music is playing. pic.twitter.com/5JSV3NEQkl #WWE #WWERAW

After the commercial break everything was resolved and Nikki was announced as the winner of the reunion and was being treated by medical staff. In this sense, Wrestling Inc reports that from what it appears the plan was for Tamina to win but they had to change plans when the Scottish native suffered an injury. On the other hand, Nikki was in the match that Ripley and Natalya had later and she wasn’t injured so it wouldn’t have been a serious injury. It was a really strange moment but there was an explanation behind it.
