The sport of professional wrestling has evolved over the years. Women wrestlers are represented more than ever. However, there remain some flaws and shortcomings in the system. On the same issue, Tamina tweeted the following:

This whole scenario started with coverage from The Huffington Post. The coverage included a story about three Muslim women not being able to follow their dreams of becoming pro wrestlers. For context, Muslim women are supposed to cover most of their bodies, including their arms and hair. There are strict laws in the religion for non-believers.

The story received many reactions from viewers all over the world. One of the most prominent reactions came from the legendary Jimmy Snuka’s daughter. She seemed outraged at the whole situation.

Tamina advocated for the rights of women to follow their beliefs. She insisted that the sport of professional wrestling be more inclusive and open to women from all backgrounds.

Discrimination has no place in today’s society. Everyone should be allowed to follow their ambitions. Religious customs should not be stated as a reason to stop someone from competing in a sport.
