On Monday’s episode of RAW, WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Natalya seemed to pick up an ankle injury in what looked like a freak accident from a routine move.
Natalya has since taken to her Twitter account, confirming that she will have to undergo surgery as a result of the injury. She tweeted that, “Today my surgeon told me that I’m an anomaly. All I asked was to be put back in the fight and FAST. Surgery will fix me, defending our championships will drive me. #UNBREAKABLE.”

WWE’s official Twitter account has since responded to Natalya’s post, confirming that a further update on her injury will be given on next week’s episode of WWE Monday Night RAW.
Get well soon, @NatbyNature!

Natalya is currently one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions alongside her tag team partner Tamina. As of yesterday, reports indicated that there were no plans to strip the pair of their titles after the injury. However, plans are often subject to change, especially when injuries are concerned. The pair have held the championships for 77 days at the time of writing.
