WWE is featuring an interview (above) with Natalya about her thoughts on having the first-ever Women’s Match today at WWE Crown Jewel.
Natalya talked about her excitement over getting the news, as well as what she thinks the match means.
“I’m just so excited. I don’t feel like it’s really sunk in. For me it’s life changing. It was like 3 o’clock in the morning when the news broke back in the States. 3 o’clock, 4 o’clock in the morning in the US. I texted my Mom and I’m like, “I’m so sorry to wake you up, but I’m just like so excited.” And my Mom was just so happy. To me, I can’t believe that I’m getting to do this. I cannot believe that I’m going to be a part of history. I’m just so excited. I’m so excited for our WWE fans in Saudi Arabia and our WWE fans around the world. For women around the world, it’s just transcending.”
WWE is also featuring an interview with Lacey Evans (below), who was also asked about her initial reaction to finding out.
“Just honored. Honored that I get to be a part of this history making event. Honored to be here to get to perform in front of the WWE Universe, in front of Saudi Arabia. To get to open doors that have never been opened before. I’m blown away. I’m honestly numb right now. I can’t believe that this is happening and I’m just blessed that I get to be here.
