WWE's Natalya Expects To Return From Ankle Surgery In 'Under A Month'
Natalya sustained the injury on last week's Raw
Natalya says she is hopeful of returning from ankle surgery in 'under a month'.
The WWE Women's Tag Team Champion sustained the injury last week during a tag team match on Monday Night Raw, which put her and Tamina against Eva Marie and Doudrop. The bout was fast-tracked to its conclusion in the wake of Natalya's setback.
The veteran superstar underwent surgery last week on the problem and has revealed that she hasn't broken any bones, and that her recovery will probably mean she will return to action in just under a month.
Speaking on the Table Talk Podcast, she said: "I am two days away from running on the treadmill, so I’m very excited about that.
"I had screws and stuff drilled into my bone. There were no broken bones, but it needed surgery. For some weird reason, I didn’t feel any pain. And I think it was because we were with fans....hopefully soon. For me, just to be totally transparent, the surgery was Friday. I was walking with no crutches three days later.
"I probably have another week before I get my stitches out. I’ve gotta let my bone heal a little bit. But probably in the next little bit, probably under a month, we’ll see, obviously I still have to get a doctor’s clearance."
