Natalya has high hopes for Naomi.
Both former WWE Smackdown Women's Champions, Natalya and Naomi have been competing with and against one another since 2010. When speaking to ESPN 1530's No Holds Barred recently, Natalya put over her longtime friend/rival as someone she hopes to see do more in WWE.
"One of the most underrated performers that we have, somebody's that is so talented that I just... I would love to see her get a really great shot, and have an incredible title run is Naomi. I watch her, and she's just so gifted. She can do things that no other girls can do. Last year she did a springboard off the ropes onto a ladder like it was nothing. Even when she had the title, and I beat her at SummerSlam in 2017 for title... prior to me beating her, she didn't have a really memorable title run. Not that wrestling Lana is bad by any means, but I only remember her wrestling Lana. She had like a serious of matches with Lana, and then she and I wrestled at Summerslam," said Natalya.
Naomi and Natalya have worked together well over 200 times during their decade in WWE together, both teaming, and competing against one another.
Natalya and Naomi are both set for the women's Money in the Bank ladder match on May 19. You can hear the full interview on No Holds Barred from ESPN 1530 at this link.
