WWE adds The Riott Squad, Natalya to Raw women's division
July 13, 2020
The Raw women’s division got four new additions in the 2018 Superstar Shakeup.
The Riott Squad (Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan) first moved over from SmackDown, interrupting a match between Sasha Banks and Bayley. Banks had the Banks Statement locked in and Bayley was reaching for the ropes when The Riott Squad attacked them both.
Riott, Morgan, and Logan were called up from NXT and debuted as a group on SmackDown last November. They arrived the night after Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville debuted on Raw and aligned with Paige, who was announced as the new on-screen general manager of SmackDown last week. The women who are joining SmackDown will be announced on tomorrow night’s episode.
Later on Raw, Natalya appeared during a backstage segment with Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey and was revealed as another new member of the show’s roster. Natalya and Rousey hugged, with Rousey mentioning that they’ve trained together. Angle said Natalya would be in a match later.
