In an interview with SLAM! Sports, WWE Diva, Natalya, discussed what it is like to work in NXT, and how she’s seen Charlotte grow while developing in the Performance Center:
Talking about NXT, Natalya is spending quite some time in Orlando, at the Performance Centre, helping the future WWE Divas-to-be.
“I go to NXT whenever I can, to get the opportunity to work with the girls like Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Bailey and Alexa Bliss. There’s a lot of very good girls out there. It’s like if I’m in a candy shop. You see them from where they started.”
From all the women at NXT, Charlotte is perhaps the one fans are raving the most about and Natalya was able to see her develop from the get go.
“I had one of Charlotte’s first matches over a year ago. At the time, she was questioning herself, asking herself if she was good enough, if she could do this. She felt the same way I felt when I started because we both come from a wrestling family. It’s hard to fill Ric Flair or Bret Hart’s shoes.”
On May 29, Charlotte beat Natalya to become the NXT women’s champion in a match people are still talking about. Natalya was able to see first hand the improvement in the “Nature Boy”‘s daughter.
“I’ve seen a different Charlotte there. She blossomed in this girl who gave me a run for my money. Ever since that match she has a different attitude, she’s a different person now.”
