5 Ups And 6 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (August 6)


6. Nattie Is The Worst

A quick criticism of someone who has to be the worst second in all of professional wrestling, Natalya.

Nattie accompanied Ronda Rousey to the ring for her match against Alicia Fox, presumably to counteract Alexa Bliss, who also was at ringside. Bliss managed to distract Rousey twice before Natalya finally pulled Alexa off the apron, only to immediately turn her back and get posted, allowing Bliss to interfere some more.

Rousey would come back to easily win the match, but Nattie has a history of accompanying other wrestlers and being taken out of action pretty easily. She was taken out during Nia Jax’s match against Bliss last month too.

What’s the point of having backup if that person can be felled by a strong breeze? Rousey might as well have brought a cardboard cutout to ringside.

He fortunately became a fan in time for WrestleMania III and came back as a fan after a long high school hiatus before WM XIV. Monday nights in the Carlson household are reserved for viewing Raw -- for better or worse.
