It’s been reported that Vince McMahon has a ‘rule’ that no Total Divas cast members could win the Divas championship, apparently to avoid viewer confusion.
It was said that Vince believes viewers would get confused because of the delay between Total Divas episodes being taped weeks ago, and current WWE storylines. WWE Divas Cameron and Nikki Bella have said the cast can’t win the title in interviews, but the ‘rule’ has never actually been confirmed.
SLAM! Wrestling recently talked to Natalya, and while she didn’t exactly confirm the rule, she didn’t deny it, or think it was a problem, either. You can read what she said about the situation below:
“I’ve heard that rumour. It’s hard to explain it because every single day in the WWE things are changing. Remember that anything can happen in the WWE. Who would’ve have thought that Bret Hart would ever come back?” Natalya told SLAM! Wrestling. “Would I like to be Divas champion again? For sure, but it doesn’t define me. About six months ago, I felt I wasn’t worth as much if I wasn’t Divas champion. But now, it’s not what’s making me wake up in the morning. Since I started doing Total Divas, my life has changed is so many ways that I wasn’t expecting. And you know, tomorrow, all the rules can change again.”
Natalya also talked about Total Divas introducing fans to a new side of her husband, Tyson Kidd, and her thoughts on his new attitude:
“He’s just embracing is inner TJ. He’s always been cocky, I mean, he’s grown up around Teddy Hart you know! What you see in NXT is not too far from the truth. But yeah, TJ is getting quite snotty! Actually, Dusty Rhodes helped TJ in ways people don’t even know. He brought that inner jerk in him we’ve all grown to love.”
Natalya on NXT’s Charlotte and how she has changed in the past few months:
“I’ve seen a different Charlotte there. She blossomed in this girl who gave me a run for my money. Ever since that match she has a different attitude, she’s a different person now.”
