In an interview with TV Insider, Total Divas star Natalya to discuss the upcoming season reaching a milestone of 100 episodes, making history at Hell in a Cell and the newest cast members of Total Divas. Highlights of the interview below.

On being part of every episode of Total Divas: “By the end of this season I’ll have done 100 episodes. To be able to say I’ve done every single season and had the WWE Universe on this journey with me, I just feel so blessed…People become connected and want to know more. To be able to let people into my life, I feel grateful for that.”

On making history at Hell in a Cell: “Come Hell in a Cell, I would have had the most pay-per-view matches out of anyone in WWE history. I will surpass Trish Stratus’ record. To know how hard I worked, and to get this opportunity, it’s so great because 100 or so episodes later you see me achieve my dream. It’s a great message for men and women alike that if you believe in yourself and don’t give up, no matter how many times you want to throw in the towel, you can reach your dreams. Everything you ever wanted to happen can. You just have to keep going.”

On the newest cast members of Total Divas: “Carmella has actually become one of my closest friends. We travel together. We just came back from a tour of China [and] Japan. We made it through Hurricane Irma. We both live in Tampa and were freaking out. We hugged each other once we knew would be okay. Nia is such a character. She is going to be so well-liked on Total Divas because she not only wears her heart on her sleeve, but Nia just says what she thinks. I aspire to be her in that sense in that I can say whatever I want. She says what she feels, and I think the world needs more of that. Alexa is adorable. She is just as lovable in real life as she is on TV. She is very relatable. Alexa was a pleasure to work with when she was on SmackDown Live. She is really growing in WWE and is a good person.”

On what to expect for the upcoming season: “We just follow what happens in life. The seasons prior we had a lot of weddings. This season is the first season we don’t have a wedding. You get to follow more history-making stuff like the first-ever women’s Money in the Bank. Plus, Brie and Nicole stepping out of the ring to do something different. I was with Carmella and was literally going through the curtain with her at a live event when she got the news [fiancé] Big Cass blew out his knee. She was so scared and upset, seconds away from going out to perform. She was such a professional and focused on the match. I don’t know if I could have done that, and I’ve been wrestling since I was 18. A true pro.”

Natalya also discusses her vulnerabilities and first meeting Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan’s daughter Birdie.

    It somewhat bugs me that Nattie winning the title from Naomi is going to be a bigger deal on Total Divas than it actually translated.

    • Mathew Do

        DID YOU JUST PUT ALEXAS BASIC *** IN THE SAME CATEGORY AS NATALYA, IM SICK OF THIS DISRESPECT NATALYA HASNT HAD A REIGN IN WHAT 7 YEARS she deserves what she’s getting i dont care how stale it is. Naomi’s reign was also trash who did she feuded Lana ??? And then Natalya beat her. So was Becky’s she only feuded with Alexa, Mickie made the feud more interesting with the Luchadora factor.

      • Shawn Ellis

        I like ur ratings seems fair and accurate

    • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

      I feel like Mickie’s should’ve been higher. At least a 85.

      • Use the ones I posted below. They were made by calculating championships amongst other accolades, win/loss ratio, diversity inside the ring, who’s beaten who and who has been more impressive in the past year or so.

        • Shawn Ellis

          Wow I like how you did that you should tell 2K that lol where is your list

    • ???

      It’s a joke that Nikki Bella and Alexa Bliss are higher than Ivory, Jacqueline, Lita, Mickie James and 4HW ..

      Mickie James and Ember Moon are underrated ..

      Some of these makes sense, some don’t.

      This is how it should be , included Beth Phoenix and Ruby Riot .

      • Shawn Ellis

        U gave nia Jax the same
        Rating as naomi no way she’s not even a champion yet

        • And Maryse is the lowest despite being a former longest reigning champion.

    • MK126

      Ember’s a 78 and Alexa’s an 85?! Who decided that was a good idea?

    • Mitch Von Erich

      I wonder do Vince know that they are asuka over more than trish.even I’m pissed.trish is untouchable

      • Shawn Ellis

        Lol yes trish is untouchable lol this is a joke

  • Randall

    Honestly doesn’t seem like Nattie had 40 PPV matches

  • Jo9834

    I honestly feel like Natalya needs a major change in terms of her in ring presentation or skill set. Her promo’s (even the serious ones) are unintentionally hilarious due to her delivery. Her having the most PPV matches, and me not naming more than two matches which stood out to me (First womens Tables tag match AND her match with Charlotte for the NXT womens title) means she’s really coasted through her career and stayed in the same gear. Reliable, solid, but not so spectacular.

  • TheRealest #ItsBossTime

    Still stale but good for her I guess

  • Shawn Ellis

    Naomi’s my fav but let’s keep it real her title reigns were better then even Sasha naomi held that title for a long time and before she retires I’m sure she will get minimum one more heck of a career for a African American women in WWE

  • “She is just as lovable in real life as she is on TV.”

    Ummmm.

  • Rosanna

    It’s pretty obvious that WWE is pushing all the total divas superstars right now so on there season they have something to talk about. Which I don’t mind. But then I’m going to be upset when it airs and it’s over it’s back to the 4HW. Ugh, it was great while it lasted. If only Alicia was still on total divas!

  • Shady

    She put over Carmella huge here wow
