In a wide-ranging interview with Ariel Helwani for BT Sport, Natalya discussed her feud and relationship with Ronda Rousey and talked how things got personal between the two and their friendship changed a little bit because of that.
Natalya said that Ronda’s comments from Smackdown about how she opted to stay in WWE and gave up on going to have a kid and still remain “mediocre” hurt her because the two had a great friendship during her first run in the company and feels like that’s how Ronda thought about her all along.
“I don’t wanna attack her, but I feel like she really understated me. She kinda dismissed my passion for this industry,” Natalya said. “I love Ronda. I respect the f*ck out of Ronda. But I have never felt the desire in my life to have a child, and I don’t think I should be called out for that. It’s not like I am a bad person because I don’t wanna have a kid.”
Natalya also talked how this is the first time since Ronda’s come back that she’s showing some sort of a desire because she feels she pissed her off. Nattie mentioned that Ronda had a long feud with Charlotte but it didn’t bring the best of Rousey and Nattie wanted her to come out fully swinging and steal the show.
