Natalya, who knew she would not fight Sasha, talked to TJ about it. She added- ” TJ said to me, like you and Tamina need to be a tag team and he is like you guys are going to be perfect together…..You should pitch it.”

“Suddenly I went from being really sad about not working with Sasha…. [because] Sasha lit this fire in me just wanting wrestle so much. And then all of a sudden I had this new fire lit in me, and I was like, I really want to work with Sarona. I really wanted to be a team with her and TJ was the kind of inspiration behind it.” Natalya added.
