Natalya Talks Getting Inspiration From Legendary Match Heading Into WWE SummerSlam

Longtime WWE star Natalya is preparing for one of her biggest matches in recent memory of her career with WWE.

She’s slated to challenge Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Title at the upcoming WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view event this Sunday in Toronto, Ontario at the Scotiabank Arena that will air on the WWE Network.

Natalya is making the media rounds to promote the event including making a stop to talk with The New York Post. In this interview, she talked about getting inspiration from the legendary Steve Austin vs. Bret Hart match from WrestleMania 13 in 1997.

According to Natalya, she thinks this match at SummerSlam has shades of Hart vs. Austin.

“I feel like myself versus Becky has shades of Bret Hart versus Steve Austin. “[Hart and Austin] were so gritty, but there [was] still a lot of room for great technical aspects to that match,” Natalya said. “I loved how they fought in the crowd. I loved how [Austin] showed that perseverance that Becky has. … I feel like I’m very inspired watching that match.”
