Natalya has been one of the mainstays of WWE’s women’s division ever since her debut back in 2008. That’s why it was no surprise she made her return to NXT this week and now she has commented on her triumphant return.

Yesterday, Lola Vice announced an open challenge, daring anyone to face her in the ring. To her surprise, WWE veteran and RAW superstar Natalya answered the call on this week’s edition of NXT. Karmen Petrovic came to ringside and rooted Natalya on as Natalya was victorious.

In an NXT Exclusive, Natalya, alongside Karmen Petrovic, commented on her return. Natalya made it clear it was an honor to be back in NXT as she was emotional after the crowd chanted her name.

“Honestly, I’m speechless because it feels just surreal being back here. Even though I’m one of the most winning women in WWE history and I do have the world record for that [laughs], it’s been a minute since I’ve actually had a victory in WWE. These moments, I don’t take for granted. I just feel so honored to be here. I almost got choked up when I heard the crowd. It just made me emotional because it brought back so many memories of some of the best moments of my career that were at NXT, truly. Being in the ring with Lola, I realized more than ever that she is one of fastest-rising stars in NXT. She’s amazing, but she’s not the BOAT. Knowing that she’s so talented, but also seeing how cocky she is, it just felt really good putting her in her place tonight. I don’t know, I think I need to go celebrate with a glass of wine and some chocolate.”


We will have to wait and see whether Natalya will make more appearances on NXT television, as fans were certainly happy to see her back on WWE’s developmental brand after so long.
