Natalya is associated with the WWE since 2006 and she has literally seen it all in the company. Starting from the so-called glam era, she has surpassed the Divas Era to enter the ongoing Women’s Evolution for the past few years. Since female superstars couldn’t get the spotlight in the early build for Wrestlemania 37, she has to fight a lot to make way for them on the card.
While the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championship bouts were slated on the Wrestlemania 37 card, the other women on the roster weren’t quite sure about their spot. They were originally supposed to be a part of the Women’s Battle Royal on the Show of Shows which was nixed. So Natalya had to be very much vocal about WWE putting up a contender’s match featuring herself and her colleagues.
According to Fightful Select, Natalya was the one who pushed hard for a tag team turmoil match to make up the Women’s WrestleMania battle royal this year.
“WWE sources have indicated that Natalya pushed hard for the Tag Team Turmoil match to be included on WrestleMania, as to feature more women on the event.”
Natalya pushed for more title match at Wrestlemania 37
The original plan was for WWE to host a number-one contender’s match on SmackDown prior to Wrestlemania. Natalya was the one to push that match so that the women could actually feature on the card for the Show of Shows. That’s exactly what happened and this could be the reason why the Smackdown tag team title match was inserted into Smackdown instead of Wrestlemania main show.
Natalya and Tamina Snuka eventually won that tag team turmoil match on Night One to seize a title match opportunity on Night Two. But they ultimately came up short against the tag champs, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, although the title hunt is one.
It should also be noted that Natalya’s husband TJ Wilson aka WWE Superstar Tyson Kidd was the man behind all the women’s division matches in the company. The Queen of Harts posted a photo of her and Tyson with the following caption to disclose the same.
“I don’t want to put @tjwilson711 on the spot— I just want to thank him for the most incredible work he did this weekend with every single women’s match at WrestleMania 37. Over 25 hours of practice (on top of many hours in our ring), I’m really so proud of the dedication that TJ has to helping others,” she wrote.
