WWE Superstar Natalya has taken to social media to confirm that she will indeed need surgery for an ankle injury that she suffered during the July 26 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW.
In a tweet sent out on Friday, Natalya posed with a photo of her in a wheelchair and what looks to be a walking boot. She noted that while it has been an “intense week,” she’s hoping that surgery will fix her fast, and that her drive to defend her WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships will expedite her rehabilitation.
Today my surgeon told me that I’m an anomaly. It’s been an intense week to say the least. All I asked was to be put back in the fight and FAST. Surgery will fix me, defending our championships will drive me. #UNBREAKABLE pic.twitter.com/KUfeVnPBoH

Natalya suffered the injury when her ankle seemingly gave out when she was in the ring with Doudrop on Monday. She had to be helped to the back while the match continued, and fans hadn’t heard much from either WWE or Natalya regarding the issue until now. Natakya tweeted about the injury on Wednesday and briefly stated that she’s “unbreakable.”
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, Natalya is expected to be out for at least a few weeks, although WWE has said that it will issue an update on her status during the August 2 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW.
