Natalya recently appeared as a guest on The Trend with Rebecca Granet and spoke about Ronda Rousey finally joining the WWE. According to Natalya, while Rousey is an accomplished athlete outside of WWE, being a former UFC and Strikeforce Women's Champion in MMA, but she still has to prove herself inside the squared circle. "We all do have different ways we could go about getting to WWE," Natalya said. "Some of us have different backgrounds, I've been around wrestling my entire life, since I was a little girl, since I was born. Not everybody has that background. Not everybody was born into a wrestling dynasty. Lana's journey is different, Ronda's journey is going to be different and I think it's situational." Nattie continued, "With Ronda, yes, she absolutely does has to prove herself, but I know Ronda personally, I'm friends with her. Ronda has expressed that she more than anything wants to prove herself and she really wants to bring even more attention to the women of WWE, and I think it's going to be incredible for all of us."
