WWE superstar Natalya, in a recent interview with DAZN, opened up about her overwhelming experience when she saw fans made it to the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

Natalya expressed gratitude towards the WWE Universe, feeling nostalgic about the time when the WWE locker room came out to welcome back the fans at WrestleMania 37 this year, and added that she had tears at that moment.

“It’s emotional thinking about it. It just gets me feeling all sorts of ways that I haven’t felt since WrestleMania. I remember crying both days of WrestleMania because I was like, ‘This is crazy. We actually have people that are going to watch us at the shows’. I never ever took our WWE Universe, our fans, for granted, ever.

“You need to feel the rush of the crowd, whether they’re cheering for you, booing you, laughing, crying, screaming, whether you’re throwing your shirt at them or pointing to them or making eye contact with them,” Natalya concluded.
