Trained in the legendary Hart Dungeon, Natalya knows how to make the other Divas scream.
Natalya’s combination of beauty, talent and untamed desire continue to make her family proud and uphold the Hart tradition in WWE. She is the daughter of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, which explains her tough, forceful in-ring style which perfectly complements her mat ingenuity.
Shortly after her solo debut, Natalya began excellently executing the family Sharpshooter like her uncle Bret “Hit Man” Hart, driving many Divas to submission. Soon after, she joined Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith to form The Hart Dynasty. While part of the titleholding group, Natalya stepped out on her own to capture the Divas Championship and the fiery third-generation Diva has since shown time and again that the legendary pink and black legacy is safe in her hands. At the 26th annual SummerSlam, Natalya picked up a huge victory over Brie Bella, tapping out the former Divas Champion with the inimitable Sharpshooter.
Natalya has also recently stepped out of the ring to get involved in WWE’s many star-studded red carpet events. She was WWE.com’s official host on the red carpet at the kickoff parties for WrestleManias XXVIII, 29 and 30, and SummerSlam 2012 and 2013, where she has interviewed celebrities and athelets like 11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte, DJ Pauly D and Timbaland. Natalya has also been an active supporter of WWE & The Creative Coalition’s Be a STAR Alliance, Make-A-Wish, Susan G. Komen and the WrestleMania Reading Challenge, and has spoken to thousands of children and teens about WWE’s anti-bullying and literacy initiatives.
Natalya also stars in E!’s exciting new reality series, “Total Divas,” alongside The Bella Twins, The Funkadactyls, Eva Marie and Summer Rae. “Total Divas” airs Sundays on E!.
Former Divas Champion AJ Lee took offense to the success of the reality show and its stars, including Natalya. The Hart Dungeon Diva has come up short in opportunities for AJ’s Divas Title, but she’s not backing off when it comes to regaining the gold. Natalya has teamed with her E! co-stars to score major victories over AJ and other rivals.
Natalya competed in the Vickie Guerrero Divas Invitational at WrestleMania 30 for the title, but was unsuccessful in dethroning AJ. Since falling to Charlotte in the NXT Women’s Championship Match at NXT Takeover, Natalya has been experiencing plenty of relationship drama with Tyson Kidd during her husband’s quest to win the NXT Championship.
Natalya said on the WWE App that she lost respect for Paige after SummerSlam, calling her a “chameleon,” and vowing to teach her a lesson. Natalya then pinned the new Divas Champion after AJ caused a distraction on the Aug. 18 edition of Raw.
