Natalya reveals the crucial role her husband played at WrestleMania

According to Natalya, TJ Wilson, formerly known as Tyson Kidd, produced every women’s match at WrestleMania 37. The two-night card featured four women’s matches, one of which headlined Night One. The others included a #1 contender’s match for the Women’s Tag Team Championships, the tag title match, and the Raw Women’s Championship match.

Natalya herself competed in two of the four WrestleMania women’s matches, making her pride increase multifold. She had a heated debate with Paul Heyman on Talking Smack about deserving a spot at WrestleMania, and Heyman motivated her. On the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin, Natalya talked about her husband’s role at WrestleMania 37.

“TJ is one of the most valuable assets in WWE, and I can say that with complete conviction. What’s so crazy is that everything leading up in TJ’s life, up until his forced retirement, it was all for what he’s doing right now in WWE. Because he’s never made more of an impact than he has at this very moment in the company.”

“There’s nothing in his career that has been as special as producing every single Woman’s match at WrestleMania. They were all produced by TJ. 18 women were produced by TJ, which is a huge percentage of the show. TJ wanted the challenge. He took on the challenge.” (H/T Wrestling Inc)

Every women’s match ranked from best to worst from WrestleMania 37

WrestleMania 37 featured four women’s matches that ranged in both quality and star power. While two matches disappointed fans, two other matches wowed the crowd in the Raymond James Stadium.

Unfortunately for Natalya, her Women’s Tag Title #1 contender’s match was the least interesting match across both nights. Her tag title match on Night 2 was significantly better, but still didn’t seem worthy of being on a WrestleMania card.
