Natalya returns to NXT.

At NXT Stand & Deliver, Cora Jade was involved in a Fatal 4-Way match for the NXT Women’s Title. She was not able to capture the title, but she appeared on the 4/12 episode of NXT 2.0 and stated that she still has her sights set on becoming champion.

As Cora was listing names such as AJ Lee and Sasha Banks for inspiring her, the theme music of Natalya played and the SmackDown talent made her way to the ring. She became emotional at the response from the crowd. Natalya endorsed Jade and said she’s the ‘future’ of NXT 2.0 but soon after, Natalya slapped her and locked her in a sharpshooter.

Want? No, @CoraJadeWWE NEEDS to become NXT Women's Champion.#WWENXT

After the segment, Natalya walked into a room filled with members of NXT’s women’s division. She was approached by Tatum Paxley, who told Natalya that she’s willing to step up to her if that means she’ll be able to prove herself. Their match has been made official for 4/19.

Natalya looked around the room and told the talents in the vicinity that they’ve been put on notice. Natalya was last in action on night two of WrestleMania 38. She and Shayna Baszler challenged for the Women’s Tag Titles.
