Lacey Evans & Natalya Elicit "This Is Awesome" Chant In WWE Crown Jewel Bout

History is made.

In a historical moment at WWE Crown Jewel, Lacey Evans and Natalya squared off in the first-ever women's match in Saudi Arabia. As expected, Lacey and Natalya were not in their traditional ring gear. Instead, the two women wore full-body suits along with a t-shirt. The match was well-received by the Saudi audience as they cheered throughout and chanted "this is awesome" at one point. Natalya and Lacey worked a friendly bout, shaking hands before the match and embracing following Natalay's win.

After the match, Evans and Natalya went around ringside, embracing female fans in the audience.

 

Unfortunately, it wasn't all handshakes and hugs as someone threw a water bottle at Natalya during her entrance.
