As noted earlier, WWE continued Natalya’s farting storyline on Friday night’s SmackDown. She and WWE Divas Champion Beth Phoenix were backstage warming up for their match when the flatulence began before Santino Marella made an appearance. WWE says that Natalya has made it an “awkward addition” to her pre-match warm-ups.
Natalya’s uncle Smith Hart wrote the following on Twitter about the storyline:
“I am appalled by this ridiculous flatulence gimmick given to my niece Natalya”
“Anyone that knows Natalya, knows she is a radiant and incredibly inspirational person deserving of so much more.”
