Natalya comments on her recent injury and not appearing on WWE TV


As noted, Natalya suffered a broken ankle during the U.K Tour in November that has kept her off of WWE television and live events, according to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. She returned to action at the 1/3 show in Corpus Christi, doing a run-in.

Natalya worked Thursday’s NXT TV tapings in a singles match against Becky Lynch. Natalya commented on her return and the last few months of her career in a recent Instagram post:

"Thank you @wwebeckylynch! Couldn't have asked for a more perfect opponent for my first match back in over two months. Magic! I have debated with myself every day about explaining why I was suddenly "gone" after the last match I had in November. It was the first injury I've had that has taken me away from wrestling in over 11 years. I was so disappointed. For the last 8 weeks I have been in intense physical therapy. I've been focused on returning and being stronger than ever. I fought hard to come back. I hated missing this past summer of the Diva's Revolution. I wanted so much to be a part of it because I love wrestling! Not just because I was born into it, WRESTLING is a part of my heart. When I finally came back at the end of September, I was incredibly grateful and happy! I missed the girls, the ring and all of you. Then to get hurt, I felt like a failure. NOW I am better. I am stronger. I am ready. I'm not ashamed of my injury at all. Setbacks happen. And EVERYTHING happens for a reason. Sometimes when it rains it pours but there's nothing YOU can't get through. When you fall down, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and just keep going. Every person has a comeback in them. ...See you soon❤️"
