Speaking on WWE's The Bump, Natalya was asked about wrestling NXT Women's Champion Roxanne Perez.

"Roxanne is amazing. She has actually trained with me in the dungeon, and I enjoy training with her in the Dungeon, and then getting to compete against her. I think she’s so talented. I know she plays the role of the bad guy, and girl on TV, but she and I really gelled in the ring, and we just had instant chemistry. So I cannot wait to wrestle Roxanne again soon. I think down the road, listen, I wouldn’t even mind main-eventing WrestleMania with Roxanne. I have big dreams too. But she’s so talented, and she truly is a student of the game. She loves this, she loves WWE, she’s loved wrestling since she was a little girl," Natalya said.

Natalya then recalled meeting Roxanne Perez when she was 13, as seen on Total Divas, and she was happy to see that she followed her dreams. She reiterated that she would have to wrestle Perez again.
