Natalya has contributed a lot to the rise of Women's Division over the past two years. She is a two-time Women's Champion in WWE, having held the SmackDown Women's Championship and Divas Championship once each. In a recent interview with ESPN 1530's No Holds Barred show, Natalya believed Naomi is underrated: “One of the most underrated performers that we have, somebody’s that is so talented that I just… I would love to see her get a really great shot, and have an incredible title run is Naomi.
I watch her, and she’s just so gifted. She can do things that no other girls can do. Last year she did a springboard off the ropes onto a ladder like it was nothing. Even when she had the title, and I beat her at SummerSlam in 2017 for title… prior to me beating her, she didn’t have a really memorable title run.
Not that wrestling Lana is bad by any means, but I only remember her wrestling Lana. She had like a serious of matches with Lana, and then she and I wrestled at Summerslam”. On January 27, 2019, at the 2019 Royal Rumble, Natalya entered the second women's Royal Rumble match at number 2, lasting 56:01 (surpassing Sasha Banks' previous record set in 2018), and eliminated Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan, before she was eliminated by Nia Jax.
At Fastlane, Natalya reunited her team with Beth Phoenix, known as The Divas of Doom, after the two were attacked by Nia Jax and Tamina.
