Natalya Talks Making History In Saudi Arabia’s First Women’s Match

Speaking with WWE.com mere hours after the match announcement, Natalya stated that she’s “so excited” to be part of history.

It’s life-changing. It was 3 in the morning when the news broke back in the states. I texted my mom and I was like “I’m so sorry to wake up, but I’m so excited.” To me, I can’t believe I’m getting to do this. I cannot believe that I’m going to be a part of history.

Natalya will be wrestling Lacey Evans at Crown Jewel this Thursday in a rematch from many episodes of RAW this month.
