It’s been seven months since Natalya fell to Charlotte in an instant-classic battle for the NXT Women’s Championship. That’s six months of stewing, six months of preparation and six months of waiting for another crack at NXT’s resident queen bee, and what do you know? Natalya finally got hers when the two Divas reprised their battle on Raw in advance of NXT Takeover: R Evolution this Thursday on WWE Network.
The two didn’t get to dig quite as deep as they did in their initial confrontation, though they certainly didn’t waste any time in picking up where they left off. Charlotte threw chops left and right and Natalya responded with her Hart-style submission holds. It came down to a split-second reversal of Charlotte’s Figure-Four Leglock — itself a reversal of Natalya’s Sharpshooter — that gave The Queen of Harts her victory.
