Seems like WWE Women’s Tag Champion, Natalya, is on the superstar injury list after an injury on RAW. The latest news is that she might require surgery.
Natalya Suffers Injury On RAW
The WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Nattie and Tamina faced Eva Marie and Doudrop last night on RAW. It was a non-title match.
Doudrop and Eva Marie were looking to earn a shot at those tag titles. In the end, they lost the match.
However, in the process, it seems as if one-half of the tag champs, Natalya, suffered an ankle injury. It sounds like it happened when she was wrestling Doudrop.

How WWE Tag Champion Suffered Her Possible Injury On RAW
From the footage above, the two ladies got tangled at one point. Neidhart tagged out and had issues placing weight on her right leg.
Apparently, the ref called an audible, and Tamina took over. Then, Lilly, Alexa Bliss’s “friend”, landed on the big screen.
This created a nice distraction. Tamina superkicked Eva and won the match with a three-count.
After the bout, Nattie needed help getting backstage. Tamina and a ringside medic helped the limping champion.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer, Nattie suffered an “ugly” ankle injury. He doesn’t know how serious the injury is.
Meltzer noted that the injury occurred during DouDrop’s roll-up. Meltzer also stated that if Nattie requires surgery, she’ll be out of action for “a while”.
Will Nattie need time off television to recover? It’s hard to say at this point.
Someone who was off TV for months was Keith Lee. However, fans still don’t exactly know the reason behind his disappearance.
Keith Lee To Talk About Absence
Keith Lee vanished from storylines in February 2021. He was supposed to be a part of a triple threat match at the Elimination Chamber event for the U.S. title.
He was pulled from that match without a real explanation. Jim Morrison was put in his place.
In the end, Bobby Lashley, Matt Riddle, and Morrison battled at the Chamber. Riddle would end up winning the U.S. Championship.
After months of absence, Kieth Lee returned to RAW last week. He lost to Bobby Lashley, and no explanation was given around why he was gone from the WWE for so long.
Lee Is “Ready” To Tell A Story About Himself
Apparently, the WWE rejected an idea from Lee to tell his story. There’s a reason for his absence, and he’ll have to tell it on his own terms.
Lee sent out a tweet informing his fans he “decided” to tell them something about himself. Although, we are going to have to wait a week or two to hear it.
I've decided. I am just going to tell you guys the story myself. Give me a week or two.

Upon Keith Lee’s return last week, he accepted an open challenge from WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and lost. This week on RAW, he lost to NXT Champion, Karrion Kross.
It’ll be interesting to see exactly what Keith Lee has to tell fans. It’ll also be interesting to see how he gets booked on RAW as the weeks move on.
