A dislocated nose is keeping Natalya out of commission.
Natalya competed against Shayna Baszler in a single match on the WWE SmackDown episode that aired on November 4; the episode had been taped on October 28. The veteran was defeated by the former NXT Women’s Champion, who then made matters worse by kneeing Natalya in the face after the bell rang. Natalya then published a photo of her bloody face to demonstrate the harm.
On November 7, Natalya tweeted an update with a picture in which it is obvious that she is in the hospital. She claimed that the doctor had put her dislocated nose back in its proper place.
She tweeted: “We moved my dislocated nose back to the center of my face where it belongs!! I love the shape of my nose and it will stay the same, thank goodness! Can finally breathe again Pain is beauty! LFG!”
It’s unclear at this point whether Natalya’s injury will cause her to miss any time. WWT will keep an eye on the situation and release additional details as they become available.
