Quote Natalya is backstage with Ember Moon, Nia Jax, Sasha Banks and Bayley. Natalya tries to give them a pep talk, and Ember and Nia say some one-liners. They walk off, except Sasha and Bayley, who come face to face, then Bayley walks off.

- Natalya, Ember Moon, Nia Jax, Bayley & Sasha Banks vs. Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, Ruby Riott: Logan and Banks start off trading kicks and knees. Banks hits some knee strikes in the corner, then Liv tags in and continues the offense. Sasha comes back with a slap to the face, and then starts working over Liv's arm. Ember Moon tags in and continues the offense on Liv. Moon hits a spinning elbow to the face in the corner, then a springboard cross body. Moon hits a suicide dive on Liv at ringside next, then takes things back in the ring. Logan and Banks tag in now and Logan gets the upper hand. Mickie tags herself in and Logan looks surprised. Mickie continues beating on Sasha and keeps her grounded. Mickie and Logan come in now and Logan starts working over her knee. Mickie comes in and hits another shot to Natalya's knee, as Bayley tags in. Ruby tags in and drops Bayley then keeps her grounded. Referees check on Natalya at ringside. Nia tags in and hits a splash on Ruby in the corner then a gorilla press slam and a leg drop. Mickie breaks up the pin, and the aprons clear and chaos breaks loose. All of the women brawl out to ringside, and Nia comes off the apron on to all of them on the ringside floor. Mickie is the first up, and she takes out Natalya with a dropkick. Ronda Rousey comes out for the save and she chases off Mickie. Ronda helps up Natalya, but Mickie dropkicks Ronda from behind. Ronda gets up and drops Mickie in the ring and puts her in the armbar. The ref calls for the DQ and the bell sounds.

Winners via DQ: Alexa Bliss, Mickie James, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, Ruby Riott

- Ronda helps Natalya back, and we go to the broadcast table where Michael Cole promotes Friday's Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia. We see Ronda helped Natalya behind the curtain as RAW goes off the air.

It writes itself for Natayla to turn back heel very shortly, as so few friendships last.
 
Natayla would have loads of stuff she can use in promos such as being a Hart who needs the help of nobody, only trained Ronda for her own publicity, not having an outsider try and steal her spotlight etc.
 
Then when they have a one on one match on a B PPV, Ronda will look strong in victory protected by the most experienced woman on the roster.

Well, you said it all right there Adders. Agreeing with you so whole heartedly makes me second guess everything, but there it is. lol

Natty is fantastic, and working with Rousey just works given that she's been training her, too. The feud just writes itself exactly like Adders says.

I'm of the same opinion as you both.

Each of these feuds helps Ronda learn and keeps her relatively protected.

Based on last night, I think Mickie should be kept off of TV for a while, like they’re doing with Stephanie. I get that the two are booked for matches in Europe, but it doesn’t make any sense storyline wise for Mickie to show up for the next several weeks, as like Stephanie, her arm was wrenched in a bad way.

I also think they’re gonna do the same with Alexa Bliss unless she is cleared to wrestle in time for Backlash, and eventually Nattie.

I'm seeing a tag match. Rousey/Natalya vs James/Bliss. Standard hot tag formula.

Natalya and James are talented, experienced veterans who can put on a great match with anyone. That will help Rousey; who's still very green and needs that guiding hand. Meanwhile, Alexa Bliss is one of the most popular female names on the roster, with global appeal so it's a big draw, safe to bank on quality match.

Quote Ronda Rousey & Natalya are out to the ring for a tag match against Nia Jax and Tamina, but then the Riott Squad comes out and attacks Ronda and Natalya. Nia and Tamina join in on the beat-down on Ronda and Natalya, and the Riott Squad sets up a table at ringside. They triple-team powerbomb Natalya through the table off the apron. Natalya sells an arm injury as Nia, Tamina, and The Riott Squad retreat up the ramp, and we go to commercial.
- We see Ronda Rousey helping Natalya walk backstage. Natalya sits down and Ronda yells for help. A trainer walks over for medical assistance, and Ronda doesn't look happy.
 
I think now a fair bit of time has passed since Anvil passed away, that Natayla turning on Rousey will be happening shortly.
 
What happened on monday night is perfect fodder for a newly heel Natayla to rant about when the time comes probably before the Royal Rumble so they can fued before Mania season.
 
Nat can ask why Ronda didn't help her better and bring up how quickly she was replaced by her for the tag team match later that night.

Personally, I don't see it. As a lot of people predicted, Natalya was in line to win Money In The Bank, turn heel and feud with Rousey in place of Bliss. However, Raw audiences responded very positively to Natalya despite the fact she came over as a heel so the plan was changed.

Now, the plan seems fairly set, depending on who wins the Smackdown women's title at TLC. It seems likely we'll get another champion vs champion match at the Rumble either way and then Rousey will be facing the other one of Charlotte or Becky going into Mania. That leaves only one event in which she can have a title match left and I don't see it being worth a heel or face turn to make that happen.

That said, Rousey is on the turn, so a face Natalya is an option.

Nattie would have been fodder for Ronda anyway, they probably just saw her as a veteran and a safe worker who could help Ronda by having some good matches with Ronda and put her over, I don’t feel we’re missing anything special if that never happens now.

My booking would look like this - Ronda and Charlotte round 2 happens at the Royal Rumble then Becky goes on to win the women’s Rumble match and she then switches to Raw and challenges Ronda for the title at Wrestlemania, it writes itself really, simple but effective booking giving the fans what they want.
