During night one of the 2023 WWE Draft, Natalya was drafted to Monday Night Raw after being with the SmackDown brand for nearly three years.

In a new interview with The Archive Of B-Sox, Natalya noted that she can still show up on the SmackDown brand despite being an official member of the Raw roster.

"It’s exciting. I got drafted from SmackDown to Raw, but that doesn’t mean that I still can’t show up on SmackDown. That’s kind of the cool part about being in WWE. You’re drafted to a certain brand, but if the storyline calls for it, you can show up on another show. It’s cool."

The former SmackDown Women's Champion also went on to detail how she found out about this year's draft.

"How I learned about it was Triple H announced it on Raw. We had no idea. We really learn about a lot of stuff in the company as you guys learn about it. To be perfectly honest, I like it that way. We get to be part of the fan excitement and things can change so fast. In some ways, I’d rater just know about it as it comes rather than hear about it, it gets changed, then you get your hopes up or get excited, and it doesn’t happen. It’s nice to be on the journey with fans when they hear that information as well."
