In case you didn’t know…
The WWE has featured Rousey and Natalya’s real-life friendship in its storylines as well—most recently highlighting Rousey defending Natalya against Nia Jax.
The heart of the matter
The Observer notes that Natalya initially sold an injury to her right knee, however, then began selling an injury on her left knee the following week.
Veteran professional wrestling journalist Bryan Alvarez elucidated that the WWE may be planning for Natalya to turn heel against Rousey, and Nattie’s knee injury angle could be the catalyst for the heel turn.
Furthermore, it was explained that Natalya may be feigning her knee injury as part of the WWE’s storylines, only to betray her friend Rousey in the days to come on WWE programming.
“Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is presently scheduled to face WWE RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax for the latter’s title at Money In The Bank this Sunday.
The WWE’s Money In The Bank PPV airs from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois in June 17th.
The belief is that Rousey’s aforementioned matchup against Jax, is likely to be a brief match; especially given the fact that this would be Rousey's first singles showdown in the WWE.
On the other hand, Natalya is set to participate in the Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match which also takes place at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
