Natalya (real name Natalie Katherine Neidhart) is one of the most respected veterans and longest-tenured Superstars in WWE having made her main roster debut a decade ago. Since then, the former Divas Champion has remained loyal to the company and has switched between babyface and heel as and when needed for her own push as well as to get fellow Superstars over.
For the first time ever in WWE history, WrestleMania is going be headlined by a women’s match as current rumors all point towards Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch main eventing WrestleMania 35. WWE’s 4 Horsewomen vs. MMA’s 4 Horsewomen also has a high probability of stealing the main event spotlight at next year’s Showcase of Immortals.
In a recent interview with The Wrap, Natalya revealed that the women of WWE will be headlining next year’s WrestleMania that is set to take place on April 7, 2019, at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, United States.
“I think we are gonna headline WrestleMania this year. I feel strongly that we will do that.
“The Women’s Evolution right now in WWE– it’s on fire. Women have never been involved as they are right now in the company, and we’re doing things every single day to show that women are at the forefront.
“We have women behind the scenes that are in charge, like Stephanie McMahon and Michelle Wilson and so many different women taking on leadership roles in the company. We had our first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view. I’ve been a part of so many first-ever, incredible female moments in the company, like the first-ever women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble, the first-ever Women’s Table Match… The time has come.”
A proud member of the Hart wrestling family and wife to Tyson Kidd, Natalya is one of the most beloved and worshiped female wrestlers in the Women’s Division in WWE. The queen of the Hart family has been consistent throughout her 10 years in Vince McMahon’s promotion and is currently helping current generation Superstars gain a more stable footing in the pro-wrestling business.
