Natalya has shared a photo after being treated for a dislocated nose after what happened recently on WWE Friday Night Smackdown.
The November 4th episode of Smackdown, which was taped one week earlier, saw Shayna Baszler face off against her former tag team partner, Natalya. Baszler recently became aligned with the Smackdown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey, who is now in a heel role.
Baszler and Natalya had a very physical match that saw Baszler pick up the win after applying the Kirifuda Clutch submission, which led to Natalya passing out in the hold and the referee called for the bell.
After the match, Baszler charged at Natalya and hit her with a running knee to the face. Natalya was shown moments later with a white towel along with some blood surrounding her nose. It appeared as though Baszler broke the nose or at least damaged it to some degree.
On Twitter and Instagram, Natalya shared a photo showing her damaged nose as she wrote about what happened while also having a positive attitude as usual:
We moved my dislocated nose back to the center of my face where it belongs!! I love the shape of my nose and it will stay the same, thank goodness! Can finally breathe again🙏 Pain is beauty! LFG! 😂

It was reported by Post Wrestling that Baszler’s knee “strike to the face on SmackDown was a cover reason as Natalya was due to have nasal surgery.”
Since Smackdown was taped a week earlier on October 28th, Natalya was still able to go on Smackdown’s tour through Europe over the last week.
