WWE SmackDown: Tamina and Natalya Set to Battle it Out on WWE Backstage for #30 in the Royal Rumble

WWE Backstage makes its return on Saturday as a one-off ahead of Royal Rumble and several announcements are set to be made.

Ahead of the show, it’s been revealed that #1 and #2 will be declared publicly as part of the show. It was also revealed that Tamina and Natalya will battle it out on the episode of Backstage in order to be number 30 in the Women’s Royal Rumble match.

Tamina and Natalya have been on the same page over the past few weeks and neither woman is yet to declare her place in the Royal Rumble, which means that it’s likely that the loser may not get a place in the 30-woman match.

Natalya has had a rough run on SmackDown over the past few months after it took The Queen of Harts four attempts to qualify for the Survivor Series women’s team back in November.

Tamina on the other hand has been a forgettable member of the SmackDown locker room since she was drafted over back in October.

Many fans believed that Tamina would become part of the feud with Roman Reigns and Jey Uso since it’s her family, but this didn’t happen.

This match could be both women’s best option when it comes to winning the Women’s Royal Rumble match.
