Natalya: It Hurts To Put The Sharpshooter On Ronda Rousey Because She's A Wild Wombat

Natalya, like many wrestlers, is a little banged up.

Natalya visited Dr. Beau Hightower to get some work done ahead of her WWE SmackDown Women's Championship bout against Ronda Rousey at WWE Money in the Bank.

During the conversation, Natalya was asked what it's like to be in the ring with the former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion.

"It's really intense. Ronda is not a joke. In every sense of the word, she's as real as it gets and it hurts, that's why I'm with you right now. I'm really putting my body through it. It hurts, actually, to put the sharpshooter on her because she's like a wild wombat," she said with a laugh. "They are vicious, wild, moody animals."

Later on, Natalya mentioned that she felt Ronda could end up being one of her favorite opponents because they have good chemistry. She also said she has good chemistry with Charlotte Flair and that she loves wrestling Sasha Banks.

A big focus of the therapy was Natalya's adductor magnus, which ended up being strained.

"This is my adductor magnus. What's going on? I strained it. It was doing great until I worked with Ronda again tonight and I just jammed it again, I don't know what's going on. It was totally fine, the last two or three days, it felt really good and I kind of strained it again tonight. I'm so fricking sick of this adductor magnus. I've had four different people working on my crotch in the last week trying to get this thing right. I've had IcyHot, THC balm, everything you can imagine," she said.

Natalya has remained active on live events where she has teamed with Shayna Baszler after working a loop of singles matches with Rousey.

Ahead of their SmackDown Women's Title showdown, Natalya and Rousey have been trading shots on social media. Fans can check out the current lineup for WWE Money in the Bank by clicking here.
