WWE Superstar Natalya recently appeared on the Gorilla Position podcast and discussed the upcoming WrestleMania 36 event. For the first time ever, WrestleMania will be taking place over two nights, on Saturday April 5th and Sunday April 6th. Of course this is due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, which Natalya addressed during the interview.
“Well, it’s, it’s what we do in WWE as far as you know, trying to make people happy in the good times, and the bad times. in dire times” Natalya began. “We’ve always just been so constant and so stable and such a grounding force for people; you know to escape whatever it is that they’re going through. We’ve always felt the strong need to be that escape for millions of people around the world.”
Natalya would elaborate further, saying “I think that’s why the company is so successful. But right now, as everybody knows there’s huge limitations, you know. They’re filming, as they’ve announced, they’re filming WrestleMania over multiple locations. It’s across two different nights. It’s unprecedented to have WrestleMania on two separate nights, you know?”
The Hart family member would finish by talking about the ‘small skeleton crew’ that will be working over the two nights a week on Saturday. “We’re using a small skeleton crew. Very very very limited amount of people that are allowed to be involved at one time. Because we have to be respectful of the nature of things, but we’re making it work and we’re doing the best we can. Last week I was so proud to watch RAW, be a part of WWE go, ‘Wow, in, in these uncertain times, just to see Steve Austin cut a promo. Or Edge cut a promo, or Becky Lynch cut a promo. Or to watch Rey Mysterio and Andrade, you know, give it their all in a match with no crowd. We’re trying so hard to keep everybody’s spirits up.”
