Natalya Credits Pro Wrestling With Saving Her Life

Natalya believes the pro wrestling industry saved her life.

One of the longest tenured WWE superstars period and by far the longest female superstar, Natalya is credited with several records in the WWE and is considered by many to be a savvy veteran born into the business.

While speaking on “After the Bell with Corey Graves”, Natalya explained how pro wrestling saved her life.

“The turning point for me was wrestling. It was when I decided I wanted to start wrestling that I realized that I couldn’t be that skinny. Like, I was wearing kids clothes. I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t bump … I remember everything really hurt because I had no meat on me. I was just like, emaciated. So, I realized, ‘I love this wrestling thing. I want to do this wrestling thing, I feel this, but I can’t do it if I’m anorexic. Like, I just can’t do it, my body can’t sustain it’. So it was like, wrestling was really what I feel like change my life, changed my career, and kind of saved me.”
