WWE SmackDown Live Superstar and former WWE Divas Champion and SmackDown Women's Champion Natalya Neidhart recently spoke to TVInsider.com.
On the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble:
“It was surreal. It’s been something that all of us girls have been wanting to be a part of for a long time.
“Before, we’ve only seen Chyna, Beth Phoenix and Kharma in the guys’ Rumble matches. So, for us to have enough women in both divisions and NXT come and be a part of this first-ever women’s Rumble with the women from the past who paved the way for us, it was such an honor to be a part of it.”
On Ronda Rousey joining WWE:
“It’s all very new. It’s a new situation for everyone. There is definitely going to be an adjustment phase. I’ve always embraced new talent with open arms. We take it one day at a time and see how it goes.
“I think [Ronda] is going to be an excellent fit in WWE. She has a great attitude. She wants to be part of this company. She wants to get to know the girls. She has a tremendous respect for the history of our company. I think she definitely brings attention to the company in a lot of ways.
“I’ll tell you one thing, because I am in the women’s locker room. There is nothing but respect towards Ronda, no matter how anyone felt [about]how they debuted her. I think we are all excited about having her there, because there are so many possibilities of what we can do with her. We are all wondering if she is going to be on Raw or SmackDown. I really want to work with her, because I know we would tear it up.”
