The 2023 WWE Draft is in the rearview now, but you never know if WWE will want to shake things up later. It appears that one Superstar would gladly volunteer to jump brands.
Click here to check out a complete breakdown of the 2023 WWE Draft.
In a new interview with The Archive Of B-Sox, Natalya teased that although she was drafted to SmackDown, she might just show up to RAW as well. She was not drafted as a free agent in the 2023 WWE Draft, but brand lines are apparently blurred for Nattie.
“It’s exciting. I got drafted from SmackDown to Raw, but that doesn’t mean that I still can’t show up on SmackDown. That’s kind of the cool part about being in WWE. You’re drafted to a certain brand, but if the storyline calls for it, you can show up on another show. It’s cool.”
Like many Superstars, Natalya had no idea about her place in the 2023 WWE Draft until her name was called. This keeps up the tradition of keeping Superstars in the dark to get an organic reaction.
“How I learned about it was Triple H announced it on Raw. We had no idea. We really learn about a lot of stuff in the company as you guys learn about it. To be perfectly honest, I like it that way. We get to be part of the fan excitement and things can change so fast. In some ways, I’d rater just know about it as it comes rather than hear about it, it gets changed, then you get your hopes up or get excited, and it doesn’t happen. It’s nice to be on the journey with fans when they hear that information as well.”
WWE has a lot of things going, and that could call for Natalya to jump brands if she wants to. The company did not draft any females as free agents, but Natalya seems more than willing to take on that role.
We will have to see how the new rosters shake out. Anyone can still get swapped around if WWE needs them elsewhere, Natalya included. The new rosters will go into effect on May 8th after Backlash.
What’s your take on this situation with Natalya possibly jumping brands? Do you want to see what happen? Sound off in the comments!
