Natalya took to Twitter last night to cryptically reveal that she has been training with an unnamed wrestler. Along with husband Tyson Kidd and renowned trainer Tom Prichard the trio ran drills with an as yet unconfirmed partner.
Finished a wrestling practice in our ring… @TJWilson ran our practice with “Dr Tom” @drtomprichard man in the middle drills. Forgot how much I love/hate those drills! So much fun … wish I could tell you who i trained with!!

Immediately Twitter was running wild with theories about who the mystery wrestler could be. With suggestions ranging everywhere from Tessa Blanchard to Melina. But by far the most popular name which kept popping up was that of Ronda Rousey. The self-styled ‘Baddest Woman On The Planet’ hasn’t been seen in a WWE ring since appearing in a losing effort against Becky Lynch and Charlotte in the main event of Wrestlemania 35. Although almost immediately after her departure, speculation began about the former UFC star’s return to the squared circle. To add further fuel to the fire, she is also known to be a personal friend of the Queen of Harts.
While clearly, there is an element of fun in her tweet, and Natalya will know the speculation that it will create, it is intriguing that the training session was mentioned at all. Referring to Tom Prichard will also only heighten the speculation. Prichard is an acclaimed instructor, credited with training The Rock and Kurt Angle amongst others. His presence adds further weight to idea that there might be something significant in the works.
