WWE SmackDown star Natalya has revealed whether she’s mad at Lacey Evans for knocking her tooth out during this past Monday’s episode of Raw.
An Evans kick led to Natalya losing a tooth during the battle royal to crown a new #1 contender for Asuka’s Raw Women’s Title, which was won by Lana.
Speaking on D’Von Dudley’s podcast, Natalya said:
“This is the second time in a wrestling match that I’ve lost a tooth. I lost my front teeth a few years ago upon some impact in the ring maybe three, four years ago. I was in Las Vegas. Had to get those fixed at an emergency dentist at midnight. It was quite fun.
“This past week on Monday Night Raw, I got kicked in the mouth by [Lacey Evans], and do you know what’s funny? Because people were asking me, ‘Are you mad at Lacey [Evans]?’ and the truth of the matter is, is no, because it’s wrestling.
“It is not a ballet. It’s really, really–I mean, ballet is tough too, but it’s hard as hell and when we get in there, it’s go time and the girls don’t play. I think sometimes, I think sometimes, the girls hit harder than the guys and Lacey’s a big girl. She’s a strong girl, she’s a badass and she booted me. She booted me in the tooth and fractured my tooth and it was gone. So, I got backstage and I was like, ‘Oh my God! I lost a tooth!'”
Natalya was drafted to SmackDown during the WWE Draft this past week, whereas Evans went the opposite direction to Raw.
