Natalya Clarifies Confusing Clash Of Champions Promo

After losing a title match to Charlotte on Sunday's Clash of Champions pay-per-view event, Natalya cut an emotional promo where she began crying and accused that the fans had turned their back on her.

Natalya left angrily, causing fans to wonder if she had possibly retired from wrestling. But relax fans, because Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio is reporting that her rant is to be part of an upcoming storyline.

Natalya also posted this tweet, suggesting that she's determined to bounce back and not actually hang up the wrestling boots:

Losing Natalya would have been a huge blow for the WWE. The two-time champion is a member of the legendary Hart wrestling family, and has been one of the company's top female performers during the 2010s.

Also, that would have been a very strange way for Natalya to leave the WWE by retiring abruptly after losing one championship match. She's still in her wrestling prime, and continues to be in the women's main event picture for the SmackDown Women's Championship.

Of course, some wrestlers have unexpectedly "quit" and/or "retired" after losing a match - even though the stipulation didn't require them to do so. JBL announced his retirement after losing to Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania 25, while Batista "quit" WWE in 2010 and 2014, following losses to John Cena and The Shield, respectively.

Perhaps Natalya's rant was a form of trying to get sympathy, which could lead to a babyface turn once again. With Liv Morgan, Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan attacking many of the female superstars on SmackDown, Natalya could begin feuding with them and become good again.

But that's for another day. All that matters is that Natalya is still wrestling for the WWE, so fans can breathe a sigh of relief. The Hart dynasty hasn't stopped just yet.
