Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that, Rhea Ripley and Natalya impressed the masses and people backstage on the July 3rd episode of WWE Raw.
Fightful Select heard from higher ups during WWE Raw on July 3, who were very happy with the gritty nature of the Natalya vs. Rhea Ripley match. In fact, one was in contact with us to tell us it should be the first thing we watch when traveling back from Money in the Bank.
Both women were said to have taken a real beating during the match and laid in strikes, and ended up very happy with the match, the reaction backstage, and online. Ripley got her mouth busted open, but we’ve heard that both women backstage told others how much fun they had.
It was also reported that management in attendance were happy with the match. We will have to see what’s next for Natalya and Rhea Ripley, but those two really impressed a lot of people in WWE this week.
