Natalya is a true veteran in the WWE women’s division and has been competing in the company for well over a decade. The former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion suffered an unfortunate ankle injury but made very quick recovery from it.
Natalya also made her return from injury back in August after a very short stay on the sidelines. She and Tamina lost to Shotzi and Nox on Friday Night Smackdown. That wasn’t all as she and Tamina also lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships to Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley.
For the past few months, Liv Morgan has been getting a solid push and a proper fan following after years of hard work on the main roster.
While speaking on Tuesday Wrestling Tuesday, Natalya made it clear that she is glad to see stars such as Liv Morgan getting opportunities in WWE.
“We hear a lot about ‘fresh, shiny, new’ and to me, there are a lot of people that have deserved a chance for a long time, Liv Morgan has been in WWE for over six years, and she isn’t someone that isn’t brand spanking new onto the scene, she’s a woman that has been there for a long time and fighting for an opportunity and a chance… If you get an opportunity, you’d be an idiot to turn it down, but it’s really nice when you see other women get an opportunity and other women get a chance to rise to the occasion and do something amazing.”
Becky Lynch is set to defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Liv Morgan at WWE Day 1 on January 1st next year. We will have to wait and see how will end up winning this time.
