While speaking with ESPN1530’s Rick Ucchino and Tarren Bland, Two-time WWE Women’s champion said she would love to go to Saudi Arabia one day.
“I would really love a chance, one day, to go to Saudi Arabia,” she told the No Holds Barred podcast. “I think that would be an incredible thing for women to make some history over there. So, one day I hope, in a way that Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss were able to wrestle in Abu Dhabi, one day hopefully that would be a place I would like to go to and be able to do something historical for women over there.” She said.

WWE has a ten-year deal with the Desert Kingdom. Till now it has hosted two events. ‘The Greatest Royal Rumble’ and ‘Crown Jewel’. The company has received flak from fans on social media for their blatant hypocrisy. WWE have been promoting the Women’s revolution in their company and yet they keep on going to a country with a poor record on human rights and gender equality.

When asked if there was a chance that women wrestlers would feature on the June 7th event, this is what she said:
“I don’t know, but I’m a firm believer in never say never. For women to be able to one day be able to perform in Saudi Arabia, I know it’s not something we’re doing it at this moment, but one day I want to be one of the women to do that. For me I just think it would just be so historical for women to make those positive steps over there. I think it’d be a huge step for WWE and huge step for that country. It’s something I want to be a part of.”
Natalya is set to take part in this year’s ‘Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Money in the Bank will take place on Sunday, May 19, inside the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
