On this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina squared off against Eva Marie and Doudrop in a tag team match.
Tragedy struck during the match as it was believed that Natalya suffered an injury when Natalya was in the ring with Doudrop.
Natalya tagged out of the match and was not involved in the finish as she was helped back up the stage and led to the back for medical evaluation.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Natalya was said to have suffered an ankle injury and could be of action if she requires surgery.
“It was not evident watching the match, but what happened was essentially Doudrop, Piper Niven, when she did the takedown, (Natalya) kind of rolled, and the ankle was twisted in a really ugly way. We don’t know right now how serious it is, but it’s probably serious. I don’t know that she’s had x-rays or anything, but it’s not the knee, it’s the right ankle. And I saw the clip, and she just rolled it when she did that cradle spot. That’s what happened.
With Natalya, there’s no answer, we probably won’t get anything until maybe tomorrow or something, x-rays or whatever. But it’s, without a doubt, it’s probably something pretty serious, because if it wasn’t, she’d just have walked out on it. That’s the reality of it. Hopefully it’s not too bad and doesn’t require surgery, because if it requires surgery then she’s gonna be out for a while.”
We certainly hope Natalya’s injury isn’t too serious and that she doesn’t have to miss out on any in-ring time. We will keep you updated on her condition.
