Natalya is the latest WWE superstar to cross over into NXT 2.0. Nattie followed AJ Styles and Dolph Ziggler as the latest main roster talent to lend a helping hand to the upcoming wrestlers in developmental. The former Divas champion has been true to her character and loves performing in front of the camera.

Nattie’s husband, TJ Wilson (AKA Tyson Kidd), is one of the most respected producers in WWE. Many were upset when TJ was unable to produce matches for the Royal Rumble. Natalya believes Wilson was born for the job.

Natalya recently appeared with Taylor Wilde on “Wilde On,” where she talked about TJ’s role in WWE. Nattie said she wouldn’t be interested in a role as a producer. She isn’t patient enough, and she enjoys being on camera too much.

“I don’t think so. There are a couple of people, my husband, for example, was always told, ‘You’re going to be a producer one day’ because he’s very gifted and a wrestling savant. I’m so biased, but he’s truly a genius when it comes to how he sees a match and the vision. He bases a lot of his wrestling psychology off the NBA. How they play their games. At Survivor Series, he produced 1/3 of the show. Last year at WrestleMania, he did 52 hours of rehearsals and four women’s matches and had it all in his head. He’s so good at what he does and for the girls, he’s such an inspiration.


For me, I don’t see myself being a producer per se, but I’m also one of those types who is ‘never say never.’ I love helping people, but I love being in front of the camera. I love speaking, hosting things, being on Total Divas. I’d love to do something like that, do reality TV. My sister and I do a fun YouTube show. I’m not the greatest at holding a camera for someone else and then not being in front of the camera. I’m just not there yet and I’m not sure I have the patience to be a producer.

They have the toughest jobs in the entire company. They are so unsung and don’t always get the credit they deserve. Somebody like Adam Pearce, he’s a GM on the show, but he also handles things backstage that nobody sees, he trains people during the week, he works Raw and SmackDown. A lot of our producers are on the road six days a week. It’s really challenging and hard because they don’t always get an action figure or be in a video game or get that spotlight. They are the first ones in the building, the last ones to leave. If something goes wrong, sometimes they have to handle it. It’s a lot. I’m too selfish to be a producer [chuckles]”

Natalya shows no signs of stopping her in-ring career any time soon. A fresh run with new faces in NXT will give her plenty of new material to work with. Nattie might change her mind someday, but for now, she is happy with her husband being the only producer in the family.
