Natalya is currently feuding with Ruby Riott on WWE Raw. This was going to be one of those ordinary storyline angles between two women superstars from the roster. But WWE wanted to add more ingredients to it and make it more attractive. While doing so, they might have turned it into perhaps one of the most disgusting storylines on WWE Raw. Mentioning a person on a repeated basis who is no more alive is something awful to the fans.
Some of the fans do think that it has made things worse for WWE Raw. The situation of the show has been worse for quite sometimes. Adding Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart into the context was the least that the fans have expected. Ruby Riott started going personal with Natalya by destroying Anvil’s Sunglasses, a few weeks ago.
A few promos followed regarding Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart to hype the rivalry with Natalya. Thereafter, we received the Tables Match between these two at WWE TLC. To make things even more personal, Ruby Riott brought a table on WWE Raw with a picture of Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart on it. She promised to put Natalya through this table on this Sunday night.
Added to that as the comment where Ruby Riott affirmed to send Natalya one step closer to her daddy. The Hart Dungeon member is still trying to overcome her father’s death. So is it okay for her to hear all these stuff on TV on a regular basis? The former Smackdown women’s champion appeared on an interview with Yahoo Sports to address the matter.
Natalya confirmed that she had no problems with WWE using Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart in a storyline on WWE Raw. She received the same question from her colleagues in recent times. But this is the biggest trauma she has suffered in recent times. So she should not feel difficulty to address the ‘elephant in the room’,
“A lot of people have asked me, girls that I work with backstage, other superstars, people at home, if I’m OK with this storyline and how do I feel about it. For me, this is what is going on in my life, this is the elephant in the room.”
The Queen of Harts also clarified that this storyline has been “strangely therapeutic” for her. She is sure that Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart would have had no problems with this. He is a legend in the pro-wrestling business and understands the need for things on a kayfabe perspective,
“I feel like if I asked my dad right now, ‘Daddy, how do you feel about me doing this storyline?’ My dad would say go for it. He understood pro wrestling, he understood how, for fans to become emotionally invested in stories, there has to be emotionally charged content.”
