"I just feel like everything I've been going through the past couple of months, I feel like it just came out tonight," Natalya said. "That's why I love the WWE Universe so much, because they've been on this journey with me, this whole time and they understand, they've had my back this whole time. I don't have to explain it to them, I don't have to talk about it - they understand. Tonight was more... everybody that's ever fought for something, everybody that's ever loved something, and to me... I love WWE, I have such a passion for this, and my dad loved WWE, and he had such a passion for this. This was for my dad, this was for the WWE Universe and this was for me. I really feel like it was just a huge win and I couldn't be more grateful, and I feel like my dad was guiding me."
