Reason why WWE scrapped Natalya vs. Ronda Rousey plans

Natalya WWE

Ronda Rousey aligned with Natalya during her first few months in WWE but the duo have not crossed paths on Raw since early October.

It looked as though the storyline between the two training partners was going to lead to a rivalry further down the line, with Natalya challenging for the Raw Women’s Championship.

However, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE abandoned plans for Natalya to turn heel on Rousey following the death of her father, Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, in August.

“The Queen of Harts” has recently been involved in a storyline with The Riott Squad which has revolved around Ruby Riott breaking a pair of sunglasses that used to belong to Neidhart.
