 About this Wonderful Lady!
Mini Bio: From the moment she first came before the WWE Universe, Natalya realized that competing in WWE was a gift, one she would utilize to its fullest extent. Of course, being trained in the legendary Hart Family Dungeon alongside a few famous family members didn't hurt either. Despite a profound desire to forge her own path, there's no denying that Natalya possesses the "hart" to reach new heights in the ring. Whether creating havoc as part of The Hart Dynasty, executing the family Sharpshooter or stepping out on her own to capture the Divas Championship, the fiery third-generation Diva has shown time-and-time again that the legendary Pink & Black legacy is safe in her hands.

In the year 2005, however, they joined forces against the Myers Family.

World Wrestling Entertainment

Development Territories

On January 5, 2007, Natalya signed a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) formerly known as the WWF, making her the first third generation female wrestler in the history of WWE/WWF.

Upon being signed she was assigned to their developmental territory Deep South Wrestling for the first half of the year before being transferred to Florida Championship Wrestling when it opened in June. Natalya debuted in Ohio Valley Wrestling in a dark match at television tapings on July 18, 2007. She debuted the next week as a member of the Next Generation Hart Foundation, accompanying her cousins Teddy Hart and Harry Smith for tag team matches. In October she, along with the rest of the Hart Foundation, were moved to Florida Championship Wrestling

(Smackdown 2008 – February 2009)

Natalya debuted on Smackdown on the 4th April 2008, She made a big time impact attacking Michelle Mccool who won the Chopper Bike contest over Victoria, Cherry and Maryse. Vitoria took exception and attacked Michelle, Michelle fought back only to be dismantled by Natalya who came from the audience and was unknown to wwe universe who watched the product on TV unless they followed FCW/DSW. The next week she came back and introduced herself along with her BFF Lisa Varon Marie (Victoria) via a promo package of her father Jim The Anvil Neidhart. Natalya did not compete until 25th April 2010, she brought back the deadly Sharpshooter that her Uncle Made Famous making Cherry tap with in seconds she applied it so expertly like Bret Hart!

Next week on 2nd May 2008 she teamed up with her BFF and defeated Cherry and Michelle Mccool in tag team action. Natalya was dominant when she came in, the following week on 09th May she defeated Michelle Mccool as well with the Sharpshooter no one could stop her dominance. Next Vicky Guerrero introduced that Smackdown will have its own Woman’s Championship the Divas Championship, she made a Golden Dreams Match where Natalya even took being champion over her BFF Victoria shoving her down and claiming the star for herself!

Natalya continued to Dominate, she won the following week and on 4th July 2008 edition of Smackdown she joined commentary as Michelle got the second Golden Dream and the match was set for the undisputed Divas championship at The Great American Bash on July 20th 2008. The two weeks before Natalya continued to win and dominate Michelle however in shocking turn of events Michelle was able to make Natalya submit but it took almost 2 minutes to make the submission specialist finally tap out to Brazilian Heel Hook, where people like Maryse tapped in seconds.

for some reason Natalya was never given a rematch and continued to compete in singles and tag matches for the rest of the year until two new comers came to the wwe Nicole Garcia and Brianna Garcia, The Bella Twins which she started a feud with along side with the Divas championship, Smackdown was a hot place for Divas action. This storyline went on until end of January 2009 Also Nattie made appearances in FCW in late 2008, managing TJ Wilson and DH Smith (Harry Smith) to the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship on October 30, David Hart Smith Natalya and Tyson Kidd as The Hart Dynasty.

Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW Brand February – July 2009 – Creating a Dynasty!

While still a member of the SmackDown brand, she made her debut for the ECW brand, via the talent exchange agreement, on February 10, 2009, managing her real life boyfriend Tyson Kidd (TJ Wilson). She did this for next few weeks as Tyson from February 10th to 3rd of March as Tyson defeated three local Jobbers. On the 3rd of 2009 Natalya debuted in her first Singles match as last year she had six divas tag match. She defeated Alicia Fox who was baby face managing DJ Gabriel. Nattie used the perfect Sharpshooter to win the match again, she then continued to manage Tyson Kidd.

Also Natalya had her first Wrestlemania debut at Wrestlemania 25 on the 05th April 2009 she competed in a 25 diva over the top battle royal which was won by Santina Marella, a great experience for Natalya to feel the grand stage for the first time!

She then had a small feud with Hornswaggle and Finlay managing Tyson Kidd on ECW episode 21st April 2009 Hornswaggle pinned Natalya which was most pathetic thing ever but Natalya was great here at acting. but Natalya proved you mess with the best you go down with the rest next week on 28th April She helped Tyson get retribution on Finlay and Hornswaggle picking up the win.

On ECW Episode 12th May 2009 Natalya created the new Hart Foundation, as DH Smith came out of nowhere to aid Tyson Kidd, this new trio was known as The Hart Dynasty, they then teamed up from this point on. They ran rough shop over most of the following weeks beating Christian Tommy Dreamer and they stayed on ECW until 23rd June 2009 when they were officially all drafted back to Smackdown on June 29th 2009!

Smackdown June 2009 – April 2010 – The Hart Dynasty

On June 29, 2009, Natalya was traded back to SmackDown along with the other members of The Hart Dynasty. Natalya’s first match back for the brand was in a six-person mixed tag team match on the July 17 episode, when The Hart Dynasty defeated Cryme Tyme (JTG and Shad Gaspard) and Eve Torres. This feud even happened on PPV at Night of Champions on 26th July 2009, Cryme Tyme got revenge on Natalya and the Hart Dynasty this was a Dark Match. Natalya also competed at Summerslam in Divas Battle Royal where we got small taste of her vs Beth Phoenix, Beth went on to win, this was also a Dark Match but part of the Summerslam 2009 DVD, the event took place in August 2009.

On 24th October 2009 Natalya teamed up with Beth Phoenix and Michelle Mccool and defeated Melina, Gail Kim and Kelly Kelly in a Bragging Rights Trophy match series best out of three for her Brand. Natalya represented her brand with honor and prestige winning and allowing her brand to later win the Trophy as she equalized it 1-1 with that big win.

On 13th November 2009 Natalya defeated Mickie James in a singles match via Submission using the Sharp Shooter Laycool caused the distraction but a major big time singles win in her career making a former woman’s champion submit and pretty quickly too!

Back in September/August the two Woman’s championships swapped brands, Currently the Smackdown title is held by Michelle Mccool, Natalya got another opportunity on 4th December 2011 in a Triple Threat Match which featured Mickie James vs Beth Phoenix vs Natalya. This was the second best match of the year too only being beaten by Melina vs Night of Champions 2009. Natalya did not get the win here as Mickie James picked up the scraps off of Beth’s Glam Slam on Natalya.

Also Natalya competed at the Royal Rumble in a dark match she teamed up with Maryse, Jillian and Katie Lea to face Eve, Kelly and the Bella twins Natalya’s team lost this match though but another chance for Natty to be on PPV even if it is a dark match.

Natalya then continued to manage the Hart Dynasty but had a few singles matches against Maria leading into Wrestlemania on 12th February 2010 Maria stacked Natalya when both were managing which lead to a match the next week on 19th February 2010 on Smackdown. Natalya easily defeated Maria in a singles match with her Nattie By Nature Clothesline which became her second finishing move or signature move.

Natalya made her second Wrestlemania Debut Vince tried to pay her off and the Hart Dynasty and the rest of her family to beat up Bret, but Bret told them all to accept the money and then they all took turns beating up Vince this caused all three to make the transition from Heel to Faces.

at the Extreme Rules PPV – 25/04/2010 the Hart Dynasty managed by both Bret and Natalya defeated Showmiz after Miz ran his mouth Teddy Long made them face three teams the team that defeated them would take on Showmiz for the Championship the next night on raw, The Hart Dynasty defeated them with the Hart Attack with in few seconds of entering the match.

Raw April 2009 – Present!

Managing the Tag team Champs(Hart Dynasty)

On April 26th on the raw draft Special, The Hart Dynasty won the Unified Tag Team Titles from The Miz and The Big Show aka SHow miz this was a very good tag match pretty long too!
The following day, as part of the 2010 WWE Supplemental Draft, Natalya was drafted to the Raw brand, along with Kidd and Smith, Natalya continued to manage her champions the Hart Dynasty. They had their first Tag Team Title defence against Jericho and Miz at Over The Limit – 23/05/2010, Natalya managed the Hart Dynasty at this event.

Next Tamina and The Uso’s attacked Natalya and DH and Tyson on the raw the next night after Extreme Rules trying to make a statement at their expense. but at Fatal 4-Way, Natalya and The Hart Dynasty defeated Tamina and The Uso Brothers in a six-person mixed tag team match Natalya’s next big match on PPV. Natalya pinned Tamina using her signature Nattie By Nature clothesline finishing move.

This feud continued to the Money in the Bank PPV on 18th July 2010, as she helped The Hart Dynasty to retain the championship by stopping Tamina from interfering in the match.

IN the Month of September, at Night of Champions PPV on the 19th September 2010 was a huge Night for Natalya as it started her Run to becoming the 1st ever 3rd Generation Diva to hold the gold in the world, but a bad night for the Hart Dynasty as they lost their Tag Team Championships in a Tag Team Turmoil match. The good part though was Michelle McCool got in Natalya’s face which was a mistake and Natalya beat up Michelle a lot as a lumberjill this then lead to big time feud over the Undisputed Divas Championship.

Divas Champion (End of September 2010 – April 2011)

On the September 27 episode of Raw, Natalya won a battle royal to become the number one contender to the WWE Unified Divas Championship. On the October 1 episode of SmackDown, Natalya won an eight-Diva tag team match for her team when she made Maryse submit with the Sharp Shooter.

Natalya first shot at the gold happened At the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on October 3, she defeated Michelle McCool via disqualification in a match for the championship, Layla threw her show which for some reason got Michelle Disqualified and saved her title.

She received another championship match three weeks later at the Bragging Rights pay-per-view, where she lost to Layla after McCool Kicked her in the face from the outside behind the referees back. Natalya is now experiencing the ultimate feeling to chase for the championship which Eve never got to experience or many divas of today. On the November 1 episode of Raw, she once again became number one contender to the Unified Divas Championship after defeating Michelle McCool in a non-title match. During all this happening the Hart Dynasty had problems that Natty tried to fix but Tyson Kid turned heel on DH Smith on raw on 15th November 2010 which resulting him attacking DH Smith.

Natalya was destined for greatness the day she stepped foot in the wwe her 2 year journey to become the absolute best in the business came to be a reality. At the Survivor Series PPV on November 21, Natalya defeated McCool and Layla in a two-on-one handicap match to win the WWE Divas Championship for the first time after making Michelle finally Tap out to the Sharpshooter. Natalya the feel to her knee crying tears of Joy hugging the championship a moment that can never be duplicated in any way she experienced to chase her dream and fulfill it!
Laycool tried to then steal her moment but The Glamazon returned saving Beth and this is the day Laycool met their match to the sisters of salvation they formed the most dominant Diva tag team in history of woman’s wrestling!

On Raw on 13th December Michelle won the Diva of the Year and Beth and Natalya were standing near a table which then later was revealed as Natalya and Beth on Smackdown 17th December 2010 the last Smackdown of 2010 that Natty appeared they made a special table of Laycool on it ha ha commercial stuff. They explained it was custom made they had it wrapped as an early XMAS present for Laycool!

At TLC 20/12/2010 Natty made history with Beth, Layla and Michelle in first ever Divas tables match when Natalya put both Layla and Michelle through the table. all the girls thought ti was a joke when this was announced it would be a table match and double checked it was a tables match.

On December 20th on Raw Natalya wore a stunning red dress and was featured on commentary and went congratulate Melina on being the number one contender and she slapped Natalya in the face turning heel, the next week she tried it again but Natalya was ready for her, the follow month of January 2011

All through January Natalya’s title reign was booked solidly she dominated Divas like Maryse, Alicia and on raw 24th January 2011 Natalya defended her Divas Championship against Melina and Natalya took the Sharp Shooter to whole new level forcing Melina to tap out retaining her Championship!

Natalya then got screwed over at the Royal Rumble PPV when Eve got added to a 2 on 1 handicap match vs Laycool the deck could not of been stacked more against Natalya and her title reign ended really quickly when Eve pinned Layla and stole her championship, Surprisingly Natalya did not turn heel on her but she was mad what Eve did but had respect for Eve. This was when divas division went to all time low.

On the February 14 edition of Raw, Natalya invoked her rematch clause against Eve in a Lumberjill match in a losing effort. After the match, Eve and Natalya shook hands out of respect.

She made only few appearances, but not part of any storyline until she was drafted to Smackdown on April 26th 2011

Smackdown Brand – May 2011 – 2012

Teacher Trains Students April 2011 – July 2011

Natalya took Kaitlyn and AJ under her Wing on 27th May 2011 edition Of Smackdown, she continued to tutor them every week, it took 2 weeks before AJ finally won, Kaitlyn kept losing to Alicia Fox but AJ had much Success against Tamina. Natalya kept trying to train them for next 2 months in a feud with Rosa, Tamina and Alicia Fox.

On the August 1 edition of Raw, Natalya took part in a Battle Royal to determine the number one contender for the WWE Divas Championship. Natalya failed to win and was eliminated by both of The Bella Twins. In the end she got sick of them losing all the and she turned her back on them on 1st Smackdown of August 2011 see below.

Sisters of Salvation (2011)

On 5th August 2011 Natalya faced AJ in singles match and frustration got to her of her students wanting to model not focus on wrestling and she turned heel once again, brutally attacking A.J. after the match Suplexing her on the outside. She declared her allegiance with Beth Phoenix (who made a heel turn on RAW days prior), echoing Phoenix’s sentiment that “the days of the cute, perky little princesses are over.” Also she stated Beth Phoenix I am with you sister creating the Sisters of Salvation and a shed of hope for this dying Division.

Natalya also stated this on Twitter that she and Phoenix call themselves the Sisters of Destruction (a play on the Brothers of Destruction), but this name was later dropped as Natalya tweeted that she and Phoenix are called the Divas of Doom (a play on the Legion of Doom) About a month later they began wearing small spikey shoulder pads to the ring like the Legion of Doom did in tag team matches. As the Divas of Doom, they defeated AJ and Kaitlyn in a tag team match that week. After the match, Phoenix brutally assaulted AJ, while Natalya applied the sharpshooter on Kaitlyn. Later Micheal Cole referred to them as the Sisters of Salvation for the Divas Division.

At SummerSlam 2011 on August 14, Natalya accompanied Phoenix to her WWE Divas Championship match with Kelly Kelly, who was accompanied by Eve. Phoenix failed to defeat Kelly Kelly. On the August 19 edition of Smackdown, Natalya teamed up with Alicia Fox in a losing effort to AJ and the Divas Champion Kelly Kelly when Kelly pinned Fox. After the match, Natalya and Fox argued in the ring which lead to Natalya putting Fox in the sharpshooter. On the August 30 edition of Super Smackdown, the Divas of Doom competed against Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox in a winning effort after Beth Phoenix hit Alicia Fox with the Glam Slam. On the September 26 edition of Raw, Beth pinned Kelly in a tag team match with Natalya, earning herself another Divas Championship match at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. On the September 30 edition of SmackDown!, Natalya lost to Kelly Kelly in a singles match, after the match both Beth & Natalya attacked Kelly. At Hell in a Cell, Natalya helped Beth win the Divas Championship by hitting Kelly Kelly with a microphone when she had Pinup Strong locked in on Kelly.

Natalya still aligned with Beth but keeps on being booked poorly by wwe, she keeps losing matches to Eve and Kelly on Raw, but defeating AJ and Kaitlyn without any problems, but Natalya is yet to win a singles match since aligning with Beth back in August 2011.

She Last competed on Smackdown 31/12/2011 and she received a Scissors Kick and a Super kick and Splash from Tamina following the match to end the year of 2011.

Smackdown/Raw and NXT 2012

2012 was not a much better year, winning streak wide for our superstar Natalya. She did win on her first ppv match of 2012, which took place at the Royal Rumble on January 29, 2012. Natalya, Teamed up with Beth Phoenix, and Nicole and Brianna Bella to defeat the Team of Kelly Kelly, Eve Torres, Alicia Fox, and Tamina) in a 8 woman’s tag-team match.

Continuing the Pinup strong angle, she teamed again up with the Glamazon, Beth Phoenix to dominate the team of Aksana and Tamina on WWE Smackdown, which took place on February 3rd 2012. She then started to lose again in a sort Royal Rumble rematch on Monday Night Raw on, February 6th 2012.

Natalya, then went over to NXT to start grooming new talent such as Kaitlyn getting her ready to be Divas champion. On Nxt episode, April 4, 2012, Natalya carried Kaitlyn to a pretty good match as Kailtyn was still learning the business as she was still green at the time. Kaitlyn, ended up taking victory in this particular, bout with reversal off a sunset flip causing another upset over our diva. The feud started when Natalya got jealous that Kaitlyn was spending too much time with her real life husband Tyson Kidd, which would be acknowledged in 2013.

Natalya, then put over new talent such Sofia Cortez, who is better known as Ivalise in, the wrestling business, she lost by count out on Nxt episode July 25, 2012. SHe then lost again to Sofia Cortez on, August 1, 2012, where Natalya put over with an upset pinfall victory, which shocked the world.

Natalya, then would lose on television for little while until we get to WWE, Superstars episode, September 13, 2012 where she would have an amazing competitive match against Alicia Fox, with natalya winning with her Sharpshooter Submission hold. The on 28th of Smackdown Natalya finally got to wrestle her best friend Beth Phoenix, which was a really good match with Natalya being first person to ever kick out of the Glam Slam. Beth also escaped the sharpshooter, with the match ending in a roll up victory, which was actually Beths Last match as she was kayfabed fired by Vicky Guerrero.

Natalya then saved Hornswaggle bringing her back to a babyface, and she allied herself with The Great Khali, which leads us into 2013.

2013 – Alignment with The Great Khali and the debut of Total Divas!

Once she aligned herself with Great Khali and Hornswaggle she became a sort of manager, but she was still actively wrestling on television. This lead to feud with Rosa Mendez and Primo and Epico, the colon brothers, on January 4th 2013 – SmackDown, Natalya, the Great Khali an Hornswoggle defeated Rosa and Colon Brothers.

Next, on Saturday Night Slam; she would then defeat Alicia fox, at January 5th 2013. Natalyam on February 14th, 2013. Natalya worked a Dark match with Charlotte flair, which helped elevate Charlotte and getting her ready for the Network and being on actual show of NXT.

Natalya then had matches with various members of the divas division, including AJ Lee, this was before AJ was the champion. She had matches also against funkadactyls Cameron and Naomi as well. She had a few non-title matches against new Divas champion Kaitlyn so the matches paid off that they had in NXT, as Kaitlyn was ready to carry to company on her shoulders with tutelage of Nattie’s training. the most memorable title shot Nattie got was against Kaitlyn on NXT episode, March 28, 2013.

After that Nattie, would go on to win all her matches until she met A J Lee, which, WWE was pushing the be next person to have long title reign on Monday Night raw, episode, May 13, 2013. Natalya, then would then elevate Summer Rae’s career on NXT doing the job for her as Nattie was already a mainstream main event Womans talent.

Once July 2013 hit, total divas made its debut a new womans wrestling reality tv show that was televised on the E network. It would cover Natalya’s life in more detail. She would then face Brianna Bella in a feud leading up to match at Summerslam, August 18, 2013. But prior to Summerslam she picked up a tag team victory over new Divas Champion AJ lee to earn her shot at the Diva’s championship.

AJ, would then drop her sort of pipebomb promo similar to CM Punk, berating the whole cast of total divas, which infuriated Nattie, this lead to triple threat number one contenders match on Monday Night Raw, September 2, 2013, between Naomi, Natalya and Brie Bella. AJ Lee, caused their to be no winner. This however, backfired on AJ as she was force to defend the title in a fatal four way match at Night of Champions, September 15, 2013, some how AJ Lee managed to retain her Diva’s championship.

Whilst still wrestling in the woman’s Division, Natalya kept her alliance with the Great Khali to start a new feud with Fandango and Summer Rae at the Hell in a cell PPV on, October 27, 2013. The new couple prevailed over our girl and picked up huge mixed couple PPV debut.
On smackdown, November 1st, 2013, in 6 diva tag match Natalya was able to get AJ Lee to tap out in the Sharpshooter securing a one on one number contendership. However, Our Superstar, Natalya was unable to beat AJ lee at Main Event, as AJ, got herself disqualified on purpose to retain the title.
At Survivor Series, November 24th, 2013, Natalya, with Nikki Bella were the surviving team members for the Total Divas team, when she tapped out Divas Champion AJ Lee with her deadly, Sharpshooter Submission hold.

On NXT, December 4th, 2013, Natalya Challenged Paige for the NXT women’s championship, but came close to beating her she wasn’t able sit back on the sharpshooter, allowing Paige to counter knocking her head backwards into the bottom, turnbuckle. She, then hit the Paige-turner and retained the NXT championship in one of Paiges best matches I have seen.
In the final PPV of the year Natalya got another title shot against AJ Lee at Tables Ladders and chair on December 15th, 2013, but was unable to beat her and fell short again, wrapping up 2013 for Natalya, we will then look at 2014 now.

2014 – Rebuilding her Legacy In NXT and the Main Roster!

2014 was an amazing year for Natalya as she was able rebuild her legacy starting in NXT. The first major match she had was against Emma on February 2nd, 2014, this was the NXT Championship number one contender spot, but Emma was able to defeat Natalya and gain a shot at Paige. Even though she did not win she allows new talent to get noticed for their amazing wrestling skills.

Natalya then defeated Summer rae on Nxt, Episode, January 23th 2014, we got to see Sasha Bank as Summer’s Manager before she became the Boss character, Natalya went over here with the victory. She then defeated Alicia Fox, Summer Rae and Sasha Banks. February 13th 2014 on Nxt teaming up with Bayley and Emma. On an edition of SmackDown, on March 7, 2014, Natalya scored another victory over AJ lee and Tamina, she teamed up with Eva Marie for this, which lead to a title shot at Main event. This event took place on, March 12, 2014, Aj had help from Tamina to retain her butterfly championship.

At wrestlemania Aj did something that isn’t even possible, even Hulk Hogan in his prime could never be able to do this; I never understood how a Champion can beat 13 other woman; mathematically it is just not remotely possible. the match was Vickie Guerrero Invitational Divas Championship Challenge, and as you can see this is how many people AJ defeated, Alicia Fox, Emma, Tamina, Natalya, Rosa Mendes, Layla, Naomi, Cameron, Eva Marie, Summer Rae, the Bella Twins, and Aksana. What made it worse is she slept half the match on the outside floor and then capsulized off one of babyfaces finisher and stole the win.

Now for one of best matches in NXT woman’s history along with, I would say the best match Nattie has ever put together was with Charlotte on NXT, Takeover PPV. before we get to where it was taken place; Natalya defeated Layla El, on May 1st 2014 on NXT. Next, Nattie beat Sasha Bank in the semi finals on NXT, Episode. May 22nd, 2014 leading up to the match against Charlotte.
Now on May 29, 2014 at NXT Takeover, the woman stole the show; both of them had their hall of fame family members at ring side who did nothing in the match, but watched their girls wrestle. All of them hugged after the match; Natalya, put Charlotte Flair on the map. Charlotte became the second Nxt Women’s championship after hitting a Natural Selection on Natalya.

Natalya then entered a Mentor Storyline with Rosa Mendez, but Rosa was unable to win any of her matches at all, this was support the ongoing story on total Divas. this storyline pretty much takes us to end of this year where Natalya lost all Matches teaming with Rosa Even with Tyson at ringside. However, at the Survivors Series on November 23rd 2014 Natalya teamed up with Alicia Fox, Naomi, and Emma to defeat Paige, Cameron, Summer Rae, and Layla and the whole of Natalya’s team survived, which was a great feat.

After the Survivor Series, Rosa Mendez, relationship with, Nattie, faded into background as Natalya got to move onto better things.

In mid–2014, Natalya entered a storyline with her real–life husband Tyson Kidd, in which their relationship was openly acknowledged on-screen because they got married on total Divas. She regularly accompanied Kidd to the ring to all of his matches and he started using his wife, NAttie to win all of his matches. The storyline continue and followed further Total Divas footage, in which Kidd transitioned in tension against Natalya, on total divas, showing backstage segments to follow the storyline that was done in order to use their marital problems bringing real life into the WWE these do make for the best storylines when you combine shoot and kayfabe together.

After a three-month absence from television due to Tyson Kidd’s spinal injury, Natalya, made her return back to Raw on September 21st, 2015, as a babyface, confronting the antagonist Paige over her actions during Charlotte’s WWE Divas Championship celebration. Later that evening, she was defeated by Naomi in a singles match via pinfall.

Natalya, would then on to gain some retribution over the team by defeating Naomi and Tamina in two singles matches before the feud quietly ended.

In January 2016, Natalya revealed that she had been working through a broken ankle, which was mistaken for a simple sprain and after two months of inactivity, she made her official return during a live event on January 3rd 2016. A Few weeks later, Natalya returned to WWE television, on the January 18th episode of Raw, where she defeated Brie Bella, with her former rival Paige in her corner. Upon her return, Natalya started competing in various singles and tag team matches, ending on both winning and losing sides.

Before Natalya’s Wrestlemania 31 match, Hall of Famer Lita revealed the new Raw, Women’s championship, which was going to replace the Diva Butterfly designed championship.
At the Wrestlemania Pre-show on April 3rd, 2016; Natalya’s team won after Naomi submitted to Brie Bella from the Yes, Lock that Daniel Bryan taught her, which was shown on Total Divas. After confronting Charlotte during her championship celebration the following night, she challenged Charlotte to a championship match on the April 11 episode of Raw. Natalya won the match as Charlotte was about to tap out to the sharpshooter, but Ric Flair prevented it from happening. Although, sadly you cannot win a championship by disqualification; Charlotte was able to keep her title.

On Raw dated April, 18th 2016, Natalya confronted Charlotte during an interview and revealed that Shane McMahon had booked them in a rematch for the Women’s Championship at Payback and that her uncle Bret Hart will be at her corner. At the event it did not go down as planned as she was defeated after match by Montreal screwjob repeat by referee Charles Robinson as Charlotte applied the Sharpshooter to Natalya. Natalya never gave up so the match ended in controversy and then after the match; both Natalya and Bret Hart applied their finishing maneuver the, Sharpshooter, on Charlotte and Ric Flair. The following month at the Extreme Rules PPV; she was once again screwed out of the title by having to tap out to the figure-8, thanks to a returning Dana Brooke as Charlotte’s new Protege. This was a submission only style match in, which Ric Flair was banned from ringside.

On June 19th 2016 at Money In The Bank, Natalya teamed with Becky Lynch in a losing effort against Charlotte and Dana Brooke. Before the match Carano, head of creative told Nattie she is going to be a bad girl again. So after the match she viciously attacked Becky Lynch, but the crowd cheered on the onslaught. So it took three different attacks over the coming weeks to finally get them to boo Nattie, and she cheered at it, which ws shown on total divas. it was announced that they would face off on July 24th at Battleground and At the event, she defeated Lynch via Submission but it took some dirty tactics and second attempt of the Sharpshooter to get the win.

SmackDown Live Mid-2016

After being drafted to SmackDown as part of the 2016, WWE draft, which took place on July 19. Natalya made her first appearance for the brand on July 26th 2016, where she was defeated by Becky Lynch with the disarmer.
On Smackdown Live dated August 5th, 2016, Natalya attacked Carmella, which led to a match on the August 9th episode of SmackDown, in which Carmella was victorious with the Code of Silence.
The following week on the August 16th episode of SmackDown, Natalya teamed with Alexa Bliss in a losing effort to the team of Carmella, and Becky Lynch, after a distraction provided by Eva Marie, and Naomi. After one day had passed, a six-woman tag team match was announced for SummerSlam between Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and Eva, Marie against Naomi, Becky Lynch, and Carmella. However, following Eva Marie’s suspension on August 18th 2016 for violating wellness policy, her place was taken by the returning Nikki Bella. Natalya’s team would ultimately win the match at the pay-per-view as Nikki scored the win with the Rack Attack 2.0.

At Backlash, on September 11, Natalya competed in a six-pack elimination challenge to determine the inaugural WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion; where she would eliminate Naomi, before being eliminated by Nikki Bella, which really was the spark that lit the fire between the amazing Nikki and Natalya feud.

Later that month, on SmackDown dated, October 25th, 2016, Natalya demanded to be the team captain of the SmackDown women’s team at the Survivor Series pay-per-view. Alas, it was not to be as she was forced to tap out to the STF that John Cena taught her how to use and now she applies it better than him, lol. So Nikki Bella got the spot as team captain, and was instead appointed as the team coach by SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon.

At Survivor Series, she ended up replacing team captain, Nikki Bella, against Team Raw in a losing effort after Nikki Bella was attacked moments before the match by an unknown attacker.
At the TLC pay-per-view, Carmella stated that she was not Nikki Bella’s attacker at Survivor Series, but that it was her fellow Total Divas co-star Natalya. After weeks of denying these accusations, on the December 20th episode of SmackDown, after Carmella again revealed more secrets about Natalya to Nikki Bella; Natalya would attack Carmella then admit to attacking Nikki at Survivor Series, revealing her pent-up jealousy of her success for years.

Nikki would call out Natalya on the January 3rd episode of SmackDown, calling her the nothing of the Hart family, and would attack, Natalya, after she tells, Nikki, she is going to die alone. They would compete in a match on the January 10th episode of SmackDown, but the match would not officially start when the two would brawl it out, with referees coming to break them up. At the Royal Rumble PPV, Natalya competed in a six-woman tag team match alongside Alexa Bliss and Mickie James against Nikki Bella, Naomi, and Becky Lynch, however her team was on the losing end after Naomi pinned Alexa Bliss.

Smackdown Live – 2017 – Present.

On the January 31 episode of SmackDown, the SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon announced that Natalya, will face, Nikki Bella, in singles competition at the, Elimination Chamber, PPV, which ended in a double count-out at the event. They had an amazing match both escaping each others Submission finishers. I was okay with the result as they really thought about the story and the transition part of it to leading into her Wrestlemania 32 match that Nikki with Cena vs The Miz and Maryse. The two were set to finally end their feud in a Falls Count Anywhere match on the February 21, 2017 edition of SmackDown Live, which Natalya won as Maryse laid her out with a steel pipe and Miz had to hold her back from doing more damage.

Before the Night of Wrestlemania she inducted her Best friend Elizabeth Copeland, Aka Beth phoenix into hall of fame, she gave such a heartwarming speech on how they met and how she was like another owen hart to her. read the full recap and see video on this link here – HOF 2017 Speech – Read
Natalya, was then involved in a another, six pack, challenge for Alexa Bliss’s Smackdown, Womans championship, which was to take place at Wrestlemania 32. Naomi returned the Smackdown before Wrestlemania and they had this match previously scheduled on the pre-show, but fans petitioned and it got moved to main show in match before Undertaker’s last match. on Wrestlemania April 2nd, 2017 she wasn’t able to win the title on this try either, I do feel she will become champion again its not a question of if, but when will it happen. Naomi reclaimed the title she didn’t lose at Elimination chamber as she forfeited due to an injury.
