Natalya has been feuding with The Riott Squad for weeks now, and on Sunday she’s set to face Ruby Riott in a Tables Match at TLC.
Their feud has gotten personal, and this week on Raw Ruby Riott unveiled a table with a photo of Jim Neidhart on it, then she told Natalya that she’s going to put Natalya through the table on Sunday.
Natalya is still processing her father’s death, but she told Yahoo Sports that she’s ok with The Anvil being used in her storyline.
“A lot of people have asked me, girls that I work with backstage, other superstars, people at home, if I’m OK with this storyline and how do I feel about it. For me, this is what is going on in my life, this is the elephant in the room.”
She went on to say that the storyline has been “strangely therapeutic” and she added that her father understood that she thinks her father would be ok with the way things are playing out.
“My dad was a professional wrestler. He was a WWE superstar, he was a WWE legend before he passed away and I feel like in some crazy way this is like my dad is having one last run. I feel like if I asked my dad right now, ‘Daddy, how do you feel about me doing this storyline?’ My dad would say go for it. He understood pro wrestling, he understood how, for fans to become emotionally invested in stories, there has to be emotionally charged content.”
