On Monday’s episode of WWE Raw, an angle played out that looked to have been utilised to write one of the stars of the show off television to deal with an injury. However, a match was announced late last night for 16 December’s TLC pay-per-view that looks to have proven that report absolutely false.
Natalya will face Riott Squad leader Ruby Riott in a tables match.
Raw kicked off at lightning pace on Monday, with a tag team match – rather than a long and hopelessly boring Baron Corbin promo – set to take place involving Nattie, Ronda Rousey, Nia Jax and Tamina. However, before the match even began The Riott Squad came down to the ringside area with table in hand. Then, Jax and Tamina attacked Nattie and Ronda, opening the door for Ruby, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan to put The Queen on Harts through a table with a Superkick/Powerbomb combo off the ring apron.
This was the latest happening in a feud that has turned pretty personal at times. Most notably, of course, Ruby Riott broke the trademark sunglasses belonging to Nattie’s late father, Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart.
