Natalya was recently interviewed by ET Canada. She spoke about her match that is scheduled for SummerSlam. She will be wrestling RAW Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch. Speaking of SummerSlam, Natalya wore her father’s jacket at SummerSlam 2018.
Her father is Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart. Natalya is the first ever third generation female superstar in the WWE. Nobody has been able to match this feat of hers. She says that she is very proud of this fact. She also understand that everybody’s journey is different.
"It's awesome," Natalya said. "It's something I obviously didn't choose but because I am a third-generation superstar in WWE, I'm so proud of it. I think about my lineage and everybody's journey is different.
Even going into SummerSlam Becky [Lynch]'s journey is very different. She fought hard to get here, she had some roadblocks —which we all do. But everybody's journey is different and I respect everyone's journey.
But for me, my dream was always to get to WWE. Once I set my mind to wanting to be a WWE superstar and wanting to be a female wrestler, I just knew that I could make it happen. I never doubted that for one second that I wasn't gonna make it here."
Natalya is a former Women’s Champion. She is also a former Diva, back when the Diva division was actually a thing in the WWE.
