Rhea Ripley lost the NXT Women’s Title at WrestleMania 36. There is bad news for fans who hoped that Rhea Ripley would get a chance to re-capture that title right away.

PW Insider reports that Rhea Ripley was forced to go back to Australia due to her work visa expiring. She will not be around during the company’s next set of television tapings.

Anyone flying into Australia at this point needs to go through a mandatory two-week isolation for precautionary reasons. The island country isn’t taking any chances with COVID-19.

Ripley had to return to Australia to get her visa renewed. It is not known when she will be permitted to return to America. Right now traveling and international flights is a very trick situation.

Given the current state of the world, there is no known timetable for her return, but she given the different quarantines involved with international travel in each country, there is no real way for her to return in time for this week’s scheduled NXT tapings in Florida, which will cover multiple episodes of the USA Network series.

It was noted that Rhea Ripley’s visa expiring could have played a part into why Charlotte Flair won the NXT Women’s Title at WrestleMania 36. Rhea Ripley will be back, but she likely won’t be seen on WWE television for a while.
