On the latest edition of WWE BackStage, Natalya reminiced about her NXT Women’s title match with Charlotte back in 2014. She faced Charlotte in the finals of a tournament to determine the first NXT Women’s Champion at the very first NXT TakeOver. While coming out on the losing end, The Queen of Harts called the match her “WrestleMania moment.”
“You know, for me… I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… wrestling at NXT in front of 200 people in that match with Charlotte at the very first TakeOver was my WrestleMania moment. Because it was so much about [the] moment and feeling and you always remember the way you feel and it wasn’t… As cool as it is to be in front of 80,000 fans… it was really one of the most special moments of my career.”
Charlotte Flair defeated Rhea Ripley for NXT Women’s title at WWE WrestleMania 36. The win makes The Queen of All Eras an 11-time Women’s Champion across all three brands. Superstars has began to consider NXT TakeOver shows just as important to their careers as The Show of Show.
