Natalya Written Out Of Top Storyline Due To Legitimate Injury

WWE officials were forced to make some changes to their plans for a top storyline which involved Natalya.

WWE RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and Natalya were in a match against Tamina and Nia Jax before the Riott Squad interrupted on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW in Houston, TX at the Toyota Center on the USA Network. This led to Natalya being sent through a table that allowed WWE to do an injury angle. It turns out that Natalya has a legit elbow injury and Ember Moon will replace her in the storyline

Dave Meltzer reported the news of the change in the storyline on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio. WWE had to decide to go with a different partner for Rousey on television after months of her being tied with Natalya.

WWE has already confirmed that Rousey will defend her title at the upcoming TLC PPV event against Nia Jax, who won the battle royal at WWE Evolution to earn the title shot.

It’s been reported that original plans called for Natalya to face Rousey at this event with the idea to have Natalya turn on Rousey at some point to set up a match. However, WWE decided to cancel the plans of turning Natalya heel after the recent death of Jim Neidhart. The belief was that fans wouldn’t boo her after what happened and WWE officials called to have Jax replace her.
