We still haven’t heard anything about a diagnosis or recovery time frame for the leg injury Natalya suffered on Monday’s episode of Raw. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said it was not her knee that was hurt, but her right ankle. He also said it was “probably serious,” but didn’t know the results of any x-rays or tests.
The reigning WWE Women’s Tag champ doesn’t provide much in the way of an update in this tweet commented on the injury. The picture that accompanies it confirms it happened during a series of roll-ups Natalya did with Doudrop - and looks pretty gnarly.
Thank you to everyone for the kind words about what happened on #WWERaw.— Nattie (@NatbyNature) July 28, 2021
There are the beatings you can plan for, and the ones you can’t. That’s the job. But I’m willing to give whatever bones, muscles and tendons I have to continue doing what I love. Good thing I’m UNBREAKABLE. pic.twitter.com/2K18Lj6IgE
Hopefully the “UNBREAKABLE” means Natalya only suffered a sprain and not a broken bone, but that’s just this writer’s speculation.
We’ll keep our ear to the ground for updates. If nothing else, we should get an indication of the severity of the injury when WWE next addresses Nattie & Tamina’s titles on SmackDown or Raw.
