WWE's Natalya Out For A Few Weeks With Ankle Injury
Natalya suffered the injury on this week’s episode of WWE Raw
As seen on this week’s Raw, Natalya suffered an ankle injury during tag action against Doudrop and Eva Marie.
The injury occurred whilst Natalya was in the ring with Doudrop, landing awkwardly on a roll-through. Natalya couldn’t put weight on her leg after the match, and was helped to the back by Tamina and a member of WWE’s medical staff.
Now per a report from The Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer states that Natalya is expected to be out of action for a few weeks as a result.
“She got an MRI after the match,” reported Meltzer “Evidently the results were better than expected as we were told she’s only expected out for a few weeks, so they also may not strip her and Tamina of the tag team titles which would be necessary if she needed surgery. After she got hurt, she immediately tagged out and Tamina worked the rest of the match. She couldn’t put any weight on the right leg and had to be helped to the back, but actually had a smile on her face leaving the ring trying to sell that her team got the win. We were told that she was okay the next day but still couldn’t put any weight on it.
“The thing is she is very good with pain because a few years ago she had broken her ankle and knew she was hurt but continued to work on it for weeks, thinking it was just a sprain, until it wasn’t healing well and then got it checked out and found it was broken.”
