Natalya Qualifies For Elimination Chamber Match – Diva Dirt
On the Feb. 3 episode of Friday Night SmackDown a Fatal 4-Way match took place to determine who would qualify for a spot in the Elimination Chamber. Natalya earned the spot by winning the match. Shotzi, Shayna Baszler, and Zelina Vega participated in the match.
The final moments saw Vega locked into a Kirifuda Clutch by Baszler who had to let go as Natalya went and missed with the discus clothesline. Baszler then locked in the clutch on Natalya but she was able to escape and push Baszler out of the ring. This let Natalya lock in the Sharpshooter on Vega to get the submission victory.
Natalya makes the fifth woman qualified for the Elimination Chamber Match on Feb. 18. It will be a number one contender match for the Raw Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair at WrestleMania. She joins Liv Morgan, Nikki Cross, Raquel Rodriguez, and Asuka who are already in the match.
On the upcoming Feb. 6 episode of Raw, we will see another Fatal 4-Way qualifying match to confirm the last entry into the chamber. It will be Candice LeRae vs. Michin Mia Yim vs. Piper Niven vs. Carmella.
Also on SmackDown, Charlotte Flair successfully defended her title against Sonya Deville. So her match against Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania is still intact. Flair retained after locking in the Figure Eight submission.
Over on NXT Level Up this week, Sol Ruca took on Lash Legend and came out with the victory after hitting Sol Snatcher.
