Natalya has offered a glowing endorsement of fellow WWE superstar Liv Morgan, saying she has natural leadership qualities and is always willing to do what is needed to tell the right story.
Morgan has been a part of WWE since signing with NXT in 2014, stepping up to the main roster in 2017, and is currently a part of the Smackdown locker room.
Natalya revealed she has been working closely with Morgan recently and has been impressed by the leadership skills the 26-year-old has displayed in recent weeks and months.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Natalya said: "I have been working lately with Liv Morgan. And we have been training together privately and she has been coming and working with me. I really see Liv – and Ruby actually, both of them – but having worked very closely with Liv, I really think Liv has leadership skills that many people don’t know about.
"She was in developmental for a long time. And I watched Liv in our wrestling practice – TJ and myself, we were watching here – and people don’t realise it because she looks very young, but she actually has a lot of leadership qualities about her that I’m impressed with.
"I’m impressed with how she brings them to the ring but not a lot of people know that. I told Liv ‘don’t forget, you’re actually a leader.’ She helps people and you don’t event realise she’s doing it. If we need to make somebody look really strong for example, Liv takes herself out of the match and says Ok, I don’t want to look weak but I need to make sure I tell the story of David Vs Goliath and she really puts herself in a leadership role.
"Liv’s got some leadership skills that if I was a casual fan watching, because she looks very young and immature on TV because that’s kind of her character where she’s this girl who is trying to figure out who she is, but she is solid. She’s really solid in a lot of ways. And she puts in the work. She comes in and trains with me two days a week. She wants to grow and she wants to be better."
