– Natalya and WWE Senior Vice President of Special Events John Saboor spoke with NBC in Tampa about tonight’s Raw reunion, WrestleMania coming to Tampa next year and more. Highlights are below:

Natalya on tonight’s special Raw: “Tonight’s gonna be huge. Obviously with Raw being in Tampa, this is the home for a lot of WWE Superstars. Tonight’s going to be amazing. We have Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Triple H and all of your favorite WWE Raw Superstars.”

On WWE already prepping for next year’s WrestleMania in Tampa: “[WWE is trying to prepare Tampa for] just how big WrestleMania is going to be. To be able to share this experience with all of my friends and family in Tampa Bay, but also have people from all over the world come and celebrate WrestleMania here with us here in our backyard… it’s huge.”

Saboor on Tampa’s significance to WWE: “Well in many respects, this feels like a hometown celebration for WWE where so many of our WWE Superstars call your city home. And I’ll tell you there is much in the way of positive heritage over decades between WWE and all of Tampa Bay. And we’re so excited to be bringing our fifth presentation of WrestleMania back to the state of Florida and our first presentation of WrestleMania within Tampa Bay. That heritage is something to celebrate, and I’ll tell you, that was such an enormously weighted and positive factor in our decision to come.”
