When the Survivor Series card was first announced, it seemed as though Natalya was set to face Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss in a non-title match, but that’s not the cast anymore.
Natalya put her SmackDown Women’s Championship on the line a few days ago on SmackDown, and she was defeated by Charlotte Flair. Now that Charlotte is the champion, she will go one to face Alexa Bliss on Sunday.
Charlotte’s big victory left one spot open on the women’s Survivor Series team for the blue brand, and there’s been a lot of speculation in regards to who could end up filling the spot.
Now the 5th member has officially been confirmed, as Shane McMahon announced today that Natalya will be joining the blue team at Survivor Series.
Individual competition drives every #SDLive Superstar. Even in defeat, @NatbyNature proved herself to be a fierce competitor and will be an asset to Team Smackdown’s 5 on 5 #SurvivorSeries Team. Let’s go to work, Nattie.
