In Video: Natalya Talks Tag Team Tables Match for ‘Inside the Match’

WWE TLC 2010 is in the spotlight in’s latest edition of Inside the Match, as Natalya takes us inside the historic Tag Team Tables match that teamed her with Beth Phoenix to take on Michelle McCool and Layla.

Natalya says it feels like the match was yesterday, rather than almost three years ago.

She notes Beth’s strength, which was on display when the Glamazon lifted both members of Lay-Cool onto her shoulders.

That strength had a downside for her partner, though, as Natalya says that when Beth was whipped into her, it felt like two freight trains colliding.

Natalya highlights her double Sharpshooter, noting that it was never done before and never done since – except by her, of course.

The moment the match should have ended – with Layla and Michelle going through the table – only left the table dented. Natalya reveals that she couldn’t believe the table didn’t break, but didn’t hesitate to drive the nail in the coffin and end the match.

Natalya closes the video by calling the match “the highlight” of her career.

    We need more wrestling matches like that. AJ Lee vs. Natalya in a Tables Match for the Divas Championship! That would rule!

    • BorisG

      Haha AJ wouldn’t break the table. Even LayCool couldn’t break it, until Natalya jumped from top rope. But it would be great to have a match like this these days in WWE.

      • nismos69

        I think the table wouldnt break because it was either different or because of the paint.

  • BorisG

    This match was great. Wish WWE could have done this with AJ and Kaitlyn. Layla should be used like this again, and I miss Beth and Michelle.

  • PopOff

    This was one of the greatest women’s matches from WWE for a long time

  • Christopher Bello

    I feel like this match is soooooo overrated. Yes it was good, but it wasn’t that amazing. It was more spotty than anything else.

  • WweRules32

    i loved this match and its hard to believe it was 3 years ago


      lkr it was a great match and it felt like it was 5 or 6 years ago. not three!

      • WweRules32

        so true and it needs to happen again with the other divas such as aj kaitlyn & layla nattie again but this time in a 1 on 1 match


          yes nattie vs layla in a no hold barred match and without the make up stuff we saw in the michelle vs beth makeover match. or if they build naomi’s character and she separates from the funks she can have a hardcore match against aj for the divas championship.

  • Chelsii?

    The fact they used a pink table and a disney looking character on the table, degraded and made this match look like a mockery.

    • AdrianRay

      Not at all. The cartoony, pink look that the table had was made to mock, not the match itself, but Laycool. The fact that they lost the match by being put through that certain table was a storybook ending. It’s not as if Michelle or Layla tripped and fell through the table while wiping a kitchen counter. Get over yourself. Lol

    • SomebodyCallMyDaddy

      The table was used to make fun of laycool , they a segment on Smackdown before the pay per view where they revealed the table with a picture of laycool looking gross on it


    this match just shows how much strength and power these girls have. i respect the divas for putting up with the wwe universe and the WWE and this match was awsome!! i wish we could get a divas elimination match, or a divas steel cage match. aj vs natalya or kaitlyn in a steel cage match would be amazing!!

  • ?igu??

    Nattie should have been giving Layla the sharpshooter on the table
    while from the Top rope Beth should have given Michelle a glam slam
    onto Layla while shes in the sharpshooter onto her back this would have legit broke the table. and a loud Pop from it

  • Lilreuche ?

    I miss LayCool

  • I dig CrayJ

    Man that match was beyond great!
    The fact that the table Didn’t break and nattie had to jump made the spot even greater

  • OH SNAP!

    Loved this match. I remember Vince wanted everyone to shut up about That Cage match between Mickie and Tara. Which he succeeded. Both was great in they own way. 3 years since this match…. Wow. I think its time for Natayla to get another shot. I wish AJ and Layla rip apart the Divas title like Laycool did so we can get a new title

  • Irish_fan

    I want to see Natalya vs AJ in a falls count anywhere or an I Quit Match. WWE needs to have another stipulation match for the divas.

  • Kingbooman

    This was a great ass match! The First Ever Divas Table.I hope AJ vs Natayla fight in A ladder match or AJ wins a Money In The Bank contract.I also would like Kaitlyn vs Naomi in a Falls Count Anywhere match.

    • totallyneccessary

      Money in the Bank really?

      • Kingbooman

        Yep! Its better than a regulars divas match so bye!

  • sheba

    whether you loved them or hated them, you can’t deny team laycool were the greatest diva tag team ever.


      Yassss y’all

  • vdcvt

    I remember watching this and thinking this was one of best matches WWE Divas matches, if not the best in a long while and especially the PG era. I miss when LayCool vs DoD but watching this makes me miss LayCool even more. Definitely the greatest Diva tag team

  • @KENLushh

    SMDH i know AJ would be down for a match like this.
    HELL i’m sure any of the Divas would be.

  • Mark

    I wanna see AJ VS Kaitlyn in a tables match.

  • nismos69

    I hate Tables matches, i don’t know they are such a weird stipulation, its weird that when you put the opponent through the table you win, the whole match is just the wrestler trying to put someone else through the table or wearing the other down. I find chairs matches even better

  • MoreThanADiva

    This is one of the best WWE Diva’s match i’ve ever seen, divas need more action and more leadership, and of course, all of the divas match would have to be like this, or at least something like this match. And as I have repeated many times, we need to save the divas division with former divas, we need matches as the triple thread match with Beth Melina & Mickie in Judgement Day 2008. Unfortunately, WWE don’t seem to realize this, or will not notice. Thanx guys :D


    We don’t need AJ vs. Kaitlyn in a Tables Match. We need AJ vs. Kaitlyn in the first ever Divas Ladder Match. I don’t see why WWE won’t let it happen? A table match is so much more potentially brutal than a Ladder Match and I think both Kaitlyn and AJ would pull out some amazing spots, especially with Kaitlyn’s selling and AJ’s technique.
