Every Friday, the Social Media Catch-Up will bring you a roundup of our favorite social media postings by the women in wrestling and present them to you here. Have you found a post we should include next week? Send it in.
Here’s our latest batch:
I can’t believe my eyes! It’s Summer Rae…in ring gear! The dancer-turned-manager-turned-Russian-translator-turned-selfie-queen returned to in-ring competition this past week weekend during WWE’s tour of India. We can’t help but notice how happy Summer looks to be back to wrestling:
It's been a pretty long time since I got to do this & no better way to do it then in front of over 15,000 screaming people in New Delhi, India tonight! I'm not going to lie…I was pretty nervous! ? But hearing you all scream my name helped the butterflies go away. And the best part is…I get to do it all again tomorrow night for you! Thank you for tonight. ? #WWELiveIndia #wwe
Okay, maybe Summer missed in-ring competition a little more than we thought. Darren Young posted a video of Summer Rae channeling her best Catwoman with some whip skills. She was pretty good – so good she almost took out a bystander. Keep it in the ring, girl!

Natalya shared a photo of herself squatting some serious weight in the gym along with a paragraph about some of her recent struggles. They don’t come any stronger than Nattie – literally:
Two months ago I couldn't dream of squatting like this because of my ankle. I pushed through and I was relentless in my recovery. Obsessed. Training twice a day, healing a broken bone. Vitamins, great nutrition, a strong support system around me and working my a$$ off to come back made such a huge difference. Plus I'm really stubborn … Hence wrestling right after I broke my leg. I didn't even know it – because I wanted it that much. People talk about PASSION all the time. It's an easy word to throw around. When you have everything taken from you, and you get it all back- you never take anything for granted ever again. #AdvancedRehabTampa #HardNocksSouth
NXT continued their world domination this past weekend with a live event in Chicago, where Finn Balor and Bayley ended the show by inviting some young fans into the ring:

After a hiatus during the holidays, Emma announced the return of Taste of Tenille on Twitter. She also promised a little more insight into her personal life in addition to her yummy recipes. Hmm…can we expect guest appearances from her boyfriend Zack Ryder?

This week, Nikki Bella learned her fate, heading to the doctor to see if her neck injury required surgery. While we have no update yet, we does have this powerful photo that Nikki shared while awaiting the doctor’s news:

Busting out the old yearbook always brings on the secondhand embarrassment, and a gutsy Sasha Banks shared hers with her Instagram followers. Hard to believe that’s the Bo$$!
Diva figure collectors have been dreaming of the day this figure would be made. Ringside Collectibles has unveiled the highly anticipated Mattel Lita figure this week! She comes with two different tops AND her thong is something, something Jakks only put on one of her many figures!
