Natalya Neidhart has criticised FOX after their Twitter account asked its fans to value their favourite wrestlers on a $15 budget, and Natalya was valued at just $1.
Natalya Neidhart Outraged As She Is Ranked As One Of The Lowest Female Wrestlers
She was incensed by the decision after feeling undervalued in a sport where Natalya is one of the most prominent female wrestlers. And naturally, she hit back. Natalya told her Twitter followers: “I have struggled for years to figure out exactly what my worth is, but I won’t allow anyone to pick that number for me.
“As hurtful as seeing this is, I want it to be known that if I ever find myself under all these wonderful women, it’s because I am a pillar and a foundation of what we’re doing. So please keep the 1$, because anyone who knows anything knows how priceless I am.”
The star has always been vocal on wrestler’s rights and has championed inter-gender wrestling. This was none more so than when Reginald Thomas took on Sasha Banks recently on SmackDown. When speaking on the showdown, Natalya told the Metro the following:
“Sasha and Reginald, their match was fun! It was fun; it was outside the box. I know we can’t do that every week! But it showed that WWE – there’s no gender gap. The girls can hang with the guys, and the guys better be prepared to hang with the girls because we will whip their ass!’
And as for her future, she revealed she loved taking on the opposite sex. She added: “I love wrestling men. I know that might not be the politically correct thing to say, but I love wrestling men. I love wrestling women – I just love wrestling. But when I was first training in the Dungeon, I really didn’t have anybody else to wrestle with other than men – like, my cousin Harry Smith, Teddy Hart, Jack Evans, TJ Wilson, my husband.
She signed off by stressing how important cross-gender wrestling was in her development: “There was one girl that would come and train with us occasionally. I was just very lucky that I had great people to work with, but so many guys that taught me how to be strong.
