Following previous reports that Natalya had suffered an ankle injury on this past Monday’s Raw, the Queen of Harts seems to have already undergone surgery over the weekend for this issue.
While Natalya has not given a set timetable on her expected recovery time, the Wrestling Observer reports that the former SmackDown Women’s Champion is likely to be out of action for weeks rather than months.
Currently one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions with Tamina Snuka, Natalya suffered this ankle injury as she and Tamina took on Eva Marie and Doudrop last Monday night. The injury occurred midway through the match, with Natalya seemingly getting her ankle caught under Doudrop before quickly tagging out and having to be helped to the back.
WWE has already announced that there will be an update on all of this on tonight’s Raw broadcast, although the belief is that Natalya and Tamina will not be being stripped of their titles.
All the best to Natalya for a swift and full recovery.
