Natalya has established herself as respected veteran in the world of professional wrestling, having spent over a decade in the industry. She has built a substantial fanbase, largely due to her positive and admirable character. Additionally, Natalya’s in-ring skills and athletic abilities have also contributed to her success and popularity among wrestling fans. Unfortunately, it seems she might be missing out on the Royal Rumble.

The Queen of Harts debuted in WWE back in 2008 and is truly a student of the game. In fact, her technical wizardry between the ropes has helped out an entire generation of female pro wrestlers.

The former Smackdown Women’s Champion is out of action due to a nose injury she suffered. She was written off WWE television following Shayna Baslzer’s vicious attack.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Natalya’s status ahead of The Royal Rumble Premium Live event. Meltzer noted that Natalya is still injured and her status for the event remains dubious.


Nattie is hurt, I don’t know if she’ll be ready by [The Royal Rumble].

We will have to wait and see when Natalya will be able to make her return to the squared circle. In the meantime, she will be dearly missed by fans.
