WWE News: Natalya and Lacey Evans comment on their upcoming match at Crown Jewel
Earlier today, WWE confirmed that Natalya will face Lacey Evans for the upcoming Crown Jewel pay-per-view. This will be the first time when two female wrestlers get to perform in front of the Saudi Arabian crowd.
Natalya and Lacey Evans took to Twitter to comment on the incredible opportunity that has been presented to them. The Sassy Southern Belle commented that she is ready to make history and make her daughter proud.
I never thought I'd have the opportunity to do the things I've done with WWE. Tomorrow I get to show my little girl that hard work can bring you to history-making heights. I'm ready for this.
In response, Natalya not only expressed her gratitude to WWE but also challenged Lacey Evans to bring her best in their match.
The world will be watching. I am so incredibly proud to represent our women's division tomorrow night at WWE Crown Jewel. It's time to bring your best, Lacey.
