• Natalya On What She Has Learned In Her 10 Years In WWE
In her latest column for The Edmonton Sun and The Calgary, former SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya discussed the lessons she has learned in her 10-year career in WWE.
Below is what Natalya wrote:
“Having a good attitude is everything. I try to go into every single match that I have with a positive attitude no matter how tough my opponent is. It’s how I wake up every day.
This has been one of the keys to me having a 10-year career in WWE.
Sometimes, we don’t always get what we want because it’s meant to be that way for us to grow and learn. The sooner we change our attitude and look on the bright side, the easier it is to be happy. I choose to be Tigger, every time!
Maybe the most important lesson I’ve learned as a WWE Superstar, and this applies to everyone in any situation, is that you get what you give. If I work hard in the gym, I’ll get results. If I train long enough in practice, I’m going to compete well in the ring. If I treat others with kindness, respect and honesty, I get it back.
Every time I’ve visited hospitals around the world, where it seems like I should be sad after visiting kids who are going through major illnesses and medical conditions, I always leave feeling so much more fulfilled knowing that we did whatever we could to give back and brighten someone else’s day who needed it the most. Even when you don’t get what you give, keep giving anyway!
All that said, we still have so many more lessons to learn, so let’s go.”
• Demolition Reveals How Much Money It Would Take To Induct Them Into The WWE Hall of Fame
During a recent appearance on Prime Time with Sean Mooney podcast, legendary Old School tag team Demolition (Ax & Smash) discussed possibly being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame one day, how much money would it take to induct them & more.
Below are the highlights:
On if they’ll ever get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:
Smash: “Who knows? We may never ever get in, because there are so many tag teams out there.”
On what would it take to get them inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:
Smash: “If they asked us, what would we really do now? It’s been 20 years since we’ve been around the business and the guys make supposedly $5,000-$6,000 when they go to the [WWE] Hall of Fame? You know it would take probably $100,000, at least, to bring us in for the Hall of Fame. I thought ‘What a good number’ because I’d give ten thousand to [my Mother-in-Law’s] church, and I’d take another $10,000 of that $100,000 and give it to my son, he’s a Deputy in the Sheriff’s Department in the K-9 unit, and I’m thinking of all these charities I’d give to.”
On getting inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame just for the fans:
Ax: “A lot of people come up and say the same thing and we appreciate their loyalty and being fans of ours. Just remembering that we were in the business and remembering things that made an imprint on their life. It would be a nice footnote. We have no control over it. If we get in it, great. If we don’t get in, we’re not going to lose sleep over it. So, that’s where we stand.”
