In January 2007, Natalya signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and spent time in Deep South Wrestling, Ohio Valley Wrestling, and Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) developmental territories. While in FCW, she managed her cousin, Harry Smith (known as David Hart Smith during his WWE tenure), and her husband, T.J.
Wilson (known as Tyson Kidd during his WWE tenure). She debuted on the main roster in April 2008, allying herself with Victoria. The following year she began managing her husband again, and they were joined by Smith to form The Hart Dynasty.
In November 2010, Neidhart won the WWE Divas Championship. Since July 2013, Neidhart has been featured as a main cast member of the reality television series Total Divas. In August 2017, Neidhart became the SmackDown Women's Champion after she defeated Naomi at SummerSlam.
She is the first woman in WWE history to hold both the Divas Championship and the SmackDown Women's Championship. During a recent interview with ET Canada, Natalya discussed her match with Becky Lynch: “You’re going to see a new RAW women’s champion on Sunday when I make Becky Lynch tap out to a sharpshooter.
And it’s just going to be so great because Becky Lynch is arguable one of the greatest female superstars in the history of WWE. She’s had the most incredible run of almost anyone I’ve ever seen in WWE, man or woman.
It’s going to be unbelievable to be able to beat her in my home country and to take home gold in Canada”. On the Bella Twins: “We’re very, very close. I love the twins. I clicked with them in the ring immediately and I clicked with them outside the ring.
And they’re such driven, hard-working girls and they’re very passionate. They’re very loyal and they fight for what they believe in and they don’t believe in something they won’t stand behind it.
And I think that they’re just such good examples to reach for the stars and keep going. And when one door closes, open up another one and kick the door down”.
