Natalya Discusses New Season of Total Divas
Total Divas returns to E! this Tuesday. Natalya discussed the latest season with the Miami Herald:
“There is no season that can compare to this season coming up because the crazy drama that happened was more explosive than anything we’ve had in the first three seasons,” Natalya said. “The drama is still going on. I’ve always said there is no place more dangerous than the diva’s division. There is no place more dangerous in the WWE than in the diva’s locker room. I truly believe that, especially this season. The lines in the sand have been drawn. There are two different sides. It’s like every girl on the show from me to Paige to the Bellas to Alicia Fox. We all have our own opinions of where we stand with the situation. It’s just crazy to me that it has become so divided. So I’m hoping everyone can work it out. It’s gotten very uncomfortable in the locker room. Even the events that we do, its uncomfortable doing them because of where people stand on the situation.
“I had a dominatrix come and visit me because I was trying a darker character on TV. My mom helped me with this woman that came over. It was pretty funny with my mom going that extra mile….I had debuted this new look that was a little darker and edgier when I walked Cesaro and TJ down to the ring. I didn’t know about what a dominatrix was or what they did. I just learned about all of it, which is covered on the show. So I didn’t realize what this woman did. So I invited her over to have some herbal tea with us. Next thing I know TJ stormed off letting me know he was a tag team champion at the time and didn’t want to be a part of this. This lady wanted him to act like a cat on the ground. You have to find out what happened by watching ‘Total Divas’ when TJ left. He was furious. So I called my mom up, but she was very obliging.
“It was has been so interesting to watch this NXT division evolve because when you are in WWE we are all in the same tree. I feel like people on the main roster are not the only divas. The NXT divas are divas, too. I feel like we are all under this same umbrella. We are part of the WWE umbrella, so to be able to work with the girls of NXT on their show, it was awesome. Triple H and I actually had an in-depth conversation about this. Triple H believes that it’s the stories. The women are being allowed to tell stories. They are getting build and time to tell the story. It’s the story more than the wrestling.”
Weekend Warriors Test Shoot
Weekend Warriors have been toying with the idea of shooting wrestling in the style of a Movie. “Shot in one day, this is our attempt to showcase wrestling in a new light. Our goal…shoot it like a fight scene in a movie.”
[It’s an interesting concept, it’s sort of what would happen if Lucha Underground applied the same style as their backstage segments to the in-ring action. I’ve always been curious whether a TV drama about wrestling, rather than a wrestling show itself, could be successful].
