Natalya and Charlotte have reached the finals of the NXT Women's Championship Tournament, the dual third-generation and second-generation Divas from two famous wrestling families with parallel tracks about to converge.  WWE.com talked to both Divas to gather their thoughts on a variety of topics in preparation for NXT Takeover. 

WWE.COM: Both of you will be renewing the Flair vs. Hart rivalry at NXT Takeover. What does this mean to you?

NATALYA: My uncle Bret Hart beat Ric Flair in 1992 for the WWE Championship. It was a live event in Saskatoon and it was very much a passing of a torch in many ways because that's when my Uncle Bret first became the World Champion. Everything changed for him and he was now a power player, thanks in part to Ric Flair elevating him in such a huge way. Now they're passing on their torches to us, the first females to represent our respective family legacies. We have to both hold that torch high.

CHARLOTTE: It means everything thus far in my career. I have always idolized Natalya. She is someone who I can relate to on numerous levels. …. Natalya has mastered her craft and when I first came to NXT, she was the Diva I looked up to. Yes, renewing the rivalry is a big deal, but I will prove to her that I am not only a Flair, but I am genetically superior. I will earn her respect when I walk away with the NXT Women's Title.

WWE.COM: What kind of advice have you gotten from your respective families as you prepare for your match at NXT Takeover?

NATALYA: The best advice I've gotten from my dad [Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart] is to go in with nothing but confidence because I've worked so hard for such a special moment like this. This best advice I've gotten from Bret is "do what brought you to the dance, and wrestle your heart out." And wrestling with all of my heart is why I'm here. The ring is my home.

CHARLOTTE: My dad knows I have studied his career and he is a firm believer that preparation is the key to success. If I ask for advice he will answer back, "have you prepared for this match?" He means have I trained, eaten right, slept and paid close attention to my strengths and weaknesses? He's always been like that. My dad knows the pressure I have put on myself.
