Natalya Will Never Not Be Proud Of 2014 Match With Charlotte Flair: ‘It’s One Of My Shining Moments’

The Watch List looks at what matches you should be watching, and they are recommended by today’s professional wrestling stars.

WrestleZone recently spoke with Natalya, who was asked if there was one match that best represented her in-ring work. Nattie picked her NXT Women’s Championship match with Charlotte Flair at NXT TakeOver as one of her favorite matches from her career.

“I love the match that I had with Charlotte Flair in NXT in 2014, at the Takeover. I watched that match, and it was when Charlotte was just getting started in WWE and it was her first big moment,” Natalya explained. “I’m so proud of that match because I was able to bring something special out of myself that I wasn’t able to show before. When I started in WWE, we were fighting for everything. Scratching, clawing, fighting tooth and nail to have anything.

“Triple H gave me the opportunity to have a match that was 20 minutes long. I’d never had that before, I never had the chance to do that,” she continued. “And then to be able to pull something out of Charlotte that she didn’t know she had inside her and to help her discover what an incredible performer she would become, it’s one of my shining moments in my career, and I’ll never not be proud of that match.”
