Natalya has recently made a few appearances on WWE’s developmental territory known as NXT. The third-generation wrestler is a legend of women’s wrestling and her in-ring skills are a treat to watch for the fans.
Natalya appeared on the 12 April episode of NXT 2.0 where she assaulted Cora Jade, who looked up to her as an idol. The following week, she defeated Tatum Paxley in a one-on-one competition. Later on the show, the “Queen of Harts” was being interviewed when Nikki Lyons interrupted her and said she is coming for the veteran after she is done with Lash Legend. Lyons was involved in a feud with Legend shortly after she arrived in WWE.
Natalya said she will make her regret her decision when she locks her in the sharpshooter. Lyons noted that she’s very flexible and she will not face any problems.
Lyons defeated Legend on the 26 April episode of NXT. The following week on the Spring Breakin’ edition of NXT, Lyons and Jade teamed up to face Legend and Natalya. The babyface duo picked up the victory in the closely-fought match.
Last week, Natalya defeated Jade in a singles competition. Now it seems the path is clear for a Nikkita Lyons-Natalya feud. However, Lyons has booked her spot in the semi-finals of the Women’s NXT Breakout Tournament. There is a chance that Natalya could cost Lyons a match in the tournament to begin the feud.
“I want a singles against you…” – Natalya on Nikkita Lyons
Nikkita Lyons was the special guest on the latest episode of the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin. She said she loved working with Natalya and would love to get in the ring again with her if there is an opportunity.
The official Twitter handle of WWE on Fox tweeted a snippet of the interaction between Lyons and Satin. Natalya quote retweeted saying that she wanted a one-on-one match with the popular newcomer.
The BOAT ended the tweet by saying she needs to find out how flexible the 22-year-old actually is.
“I want a singles against you, @nikkita_wwe! I’ll say a prayer to the Wrestling Gods. (Plus I need to find out how flexible you really are…
It will be the biggest match in Lyons’ young career whenever this match happens. Being in the ring with a legend like Natalya would do a world of good for the supremely talented Lyons.
