Rhea Ripley has worked very hard to become one of the top female Superstars in WWE. She is currently a member of The Judgment Day and fans have finally started getting behind her character as well. While Ripley returned to WWE a while ago, she didn’t really wrestle much, and there is a good reason for that.
Back in June, Rhea Ripley defeated Alexa Bliss, Doudrop and Liv Morgan to become the #1 contender to Bianca Belair’s RAW Women’s Championship. Unfortunately, she was out of action due to a concussion, and she had some dental surgery.
Ripley eventually returned to in-ring back in October. Since then, she teamed up with Damien Priest at a WWE live event, losing to Nikki ASH and Dolph Ziggler. She then defeated Roxanne Perez on NXT and then beat Asuka on this past week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.
Despite not competing in the ring for a long time, she was still seen with her Judgment Day members. While speaking to The New York Post, The Eradicator talked about the reason why she rarely wrestled since coming back. She attributed it to the aftereffects of her injury.
“A lot of it was the injury. I hadn’t been cleared for the longest time. I think I got cleared properly and fully the week before my “NXT” match. Apart from that, I pretty much wasn’t cleared that whole time. After that there pretty much hasn’t been an opportunity for me to wrestle because I have been there with The Judgement Day and sort of their muscle. I help them out if they need me.”
Ripley also believes missing out on the Money In The Bank event was a blessing in disguise. Rhea Ripley will also be part of the Women’s WarGames match at Survivor Series on November 26th. So, it remains to be seen whether her team will win the match or not.
