As noted, WWE Superstar Natalya recently appeared as a guest on the Out Of Character with Ryan Satin podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During her in-depth interview with the WWE on FOX analyst, the women's wrestling legend spoke at length about her relationship with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, as well as her process of pitching ideas to the WWE creative team for potential storylines.
Featured below is an excerpt from the new Natalya interview from the Out Of Character with Ryan Satin podcast where she touches on this particular topic.
"I leave no stone unturned. We have certain writers that we work with, we certain producers that we work with and certain people that we work with. But one of my most treasured things of working in WWE is, at the end of the day, I know that when all else fails, I can always knock on Vince McMahon’s door. And I’ll always say to him, ‘Hey. I have an idea. What do you think?’ And my entire time of being in WWE, Vince has always made time for me. Being as busy as he is, and being in the position that he is, he’s always heard me out. He’s always listened, said yes, said no, said why he liked it, said why he didn’t like it, but I always felt – in that aspect – I always had a voice.
"I would always bounce ideas off of Fit Finlay, I would bounce ideas off writers, but when I couldn’t get answers, I’ve always been able to talk to Vince. And I know that takes time, to build that kind of relationship, but it’s always just been this mutual understanding because Vince trusts me. He trusts that I’m not gonna let him down, but also I love that we can talk to a billionaire man that is running this global juggernaut, yet he’s always there. He’s accessible if we need to talk to him. So that’s been something that I’ve kept with me throughout my whole career. I don’t abuse it! But when I need to go to him, I know I can, and it really helps drive some storylines in the sense that certain things in my career never would’ve happened without that."
