"The Queen Of Harts" speaks on WWE's European tour.
WWE recently wrapped up a one-and-a-half-week tour of Europe and capped it off with RAW and SmackDown Live TV tapings back in the United States. Former WWE Divas Champion Natalya wrote about the grind that she and her fellow comrades powered through but Natalya also jotted down the many positives that came out the tour. Nattie noted how she became closer with some of the female superstars on the RAW roster including Ember Moon, and improving her already-established friendship with "The Baddest Woman On The Planet" Ronda Rousey. The following is an excerpt from Natalya's blog post onto the Calgary Sun:
"This whirlwind tour has afforded many of us the opportunity to get to spend time with one another because we are all together in very close quarters for several weeks. I’ve been on the Raw side for about a month and I feel like I’m really starting to get to know everyone and begin to share a bond with them, several of whom I didn’t really know all that well.
Ember Moon debuted less than two months ago on Raw. Prior to that, she was part of NXT and held the Women’s Championship. Ember loves video games and Game of Thrones and every city we were in, she wanted to try to see a site or taste a certain cultural food specific to that country. In the ring, she’s an incredible high-flyer. I loved watching her during our tag team matches.
I have also enjoyed spending time with Sasha Banks and Bayley, who were also my tag-team partners on the tour. They always made sure I had first dibs on everything from the food in catering to my seat on our tour bus and the charter plane we flew on because as Sasha put it, “You have veteran status, Nattie! You deserve it!”
They went above and beyond to welcome me into the Raw locker room and to show me such respect. They are not only great friends, but good people. Bayley truly makes every hug count and trust me, I never take them for granted. I have also loved collaborating with Sasha on our matches. She is so creative and really loves competing in the ring. She has a very unique style that makes me really appreciate her as a tag partner but also makes me excited about competing against her in the future. Oh, the magic we can make."
