- Natalya joins Colt Cabana on the latest Art Of Wrestling podcast (listen here), where she discussed breaking into the professional wrestling industry against her father’s wishes, relocating from Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Tampa, Florida upon signing a WWE developmental contract, various wrestling cities, Hart family tales and more. The SmackDown Diva also addressed fan concern with her lack of WWE television time in recent months.
“Just because you’re not the Diva’s Champion that day, or just because you’re not on TV that week, or just because you lose a match people get so worked up about it,” she says. “It’s all very cyclical, that’s what I’ve come to realize. Especially for women in the business, it’s very very cyclical. You can’t be on top forever.”
– A video from 2001 of former WWE Women’s Champion Amy “Lita” Dumas’ appearance at an autograph signing for the It Just Feels Right video release has drawn attention online as one of the fans she meets appears to be a teenage AJ. Dumas was asked on Twitter whether the young girl in question is the current WWE Diva, who became very emotional upon meeting her heroine.
Dumas replied, “YES. So cute.”
AJ joked about the encounter, writing to Dumas, “Haha. Proof I stalked you before stalking anyone else.”
