Natalya Says That WWE's Women's Revolution Wasn't Ready For Herself And Beth Phoenix

It was at TLC ten years ago that Natalya & Beth Phoenix took on Layla & Michelle McCool in the first-ever women's tag team Tables Match.

Appearing on The Bump today ahead of the annual event, Natalia and Phoenix appeared and shared some thoughts and memories about the historic occasion.

Beth Phoenix spoke about fighting for the opportunity to take part in cooler, more exciting stipulation matches and how it remains one of the highlights of her career. She said the following:

"This is something that we had been pushing for, for years. We wanted these opportunities. We didn't want to be, we were tired of just being put into a box where if there was a big PPV coming up like Elimination Chamber or Hell in a Cell, that we knew we weren't going to be included in those cool matches with stipulations. So to be given the opportunity to compete in a stipulation match like this, in a first-ever, this was something that we had been fighting for it, and to be able to do it with Nattie, because she and I dreamed of a moment like this... It's one of the most memorable moments of my entire career and it's something that's still talked about by fans to this day."

Natalya echoed the same sentiments and added that the Women's Revolution wasn't ready for them.

"We weren't used to having those opportunities. We weren't used to getting to do the kinds of things that the guys were doing and so to be presented with the opportunity of doing the first-ever women's table match in WWE, it was huge. I still believe that - and I've said it again and I'll say it now - Beth Phoenix and I, we were ready for the Revolution before it was ready for us."

Natalya is not scheduled to appear on the program tonight. She last competed on television on week ago when she teamed with Billie Kay in a losing effort against Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan.
