Natalya's latest blog post.
Former SmackDown Live Women's Champion Natalya has been in the wrestling business for fifteen years. Being a part of the Hart family and also being the only woman to train and graduate from the infamous Stu Hart dungeon along with being the first third-generation female pro wrestler in the world and the hard work she's put in has allowed her to establish connections in the wrestling business. One of the individuals who Natalya has established a close relationship and connection with is the current owner of the NWA Billy Corgan.
Nattie recently wrote about Billy Corgan in her latest blog post for the Calgary Sun. Natalya wrote about how she will forever be grateful to Billy Corgan for what he has done for her and her family. Natalya also told the story of Billy Corgan being her support system when she tore her ACL how when he tore her ACL.
(Here's an excerpt from Natalya's blog post):
"When we first met, I was recovering from an ACL injury I suffered during a match in Japan. It was my first injury and I was really depressed by it. There was a part of me that was thinking maybe I should look at this injury as a sign that maybe sports entertainment wasn’t for me. Billy helped me change my perspective and shared his story with me about how his journey to success was filled with all sorts of hardships and roadblocks that helped shape him into the mega rock star that he is today. To say I was inspired by him is an understatement. In a lot of ways, because Billy believed in me, it was a huge reason I kept dreaming and fighting to succeed. I’ll always be grateful to Billy for that and so many moments he’s brought my family together.
I told Billy that we consider him an honorary Hart. He says that’s a badge he wears with pride. It’s safe to say Billy and the Harts are both eccentric, but we wouldn’t have it any other way."
