Rhea Ripley’s journey in WWE has been marked by triumphs and challenges, including a dominant championship reign and significant victories, alongside the inevitable hurdles of injuries.

During this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Rhea Ripley appeared with her right arm in sling, delivering the unfortunate news of her relinquishing the WWE Women’s World Championship due to injury. While specific details regarding the injury were not disclosed, reports from Bryan Alvarez on the Wrestling Observer Radio indicated that Ripley suffered an AC Joint sprain. Initial estimations suggested a recovery timeline of 4-6 weeks for regaining mobility, with a potential return to action in approximately three months.

However, PWInsider reported that the exact duration of Ripley’s recovery remains uncertain and hinges on factors such as the necessity of surgery and the extent of her physical therapy. The injury reportedly occurred when Ripley was sent into a wall by Liv Morgan during a confrontation, resulting in damage to the AC joint connecting her collarbone and right shoulder.

Should surgery be deemed necessary, Ripley’s recuperation period may be prolonged as she undergoes the procedure and subsequent healing before commencing physical therapy. Conversely, if surgery is not required, her recovery may be shorter, contingent upon her progress in therapy.


Rhea Ripley took to Twitter to share a cryptic message, quoting lyrics from The Judgment Day’s theme song, accompanied by a photo of her Women’s World Championship: “See you on the other side.”

Meanwhile, Liv Morgan’s reaction to Ripley’s injury stirred controversy, as she expressed joy over the situation. With tensions rising between the two, a future feud seems inevitable upon Ripley’s return to WWE television.

As fans await her triumphant comeback, the stage is set for an intense rivalry between Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan, showcasing the resilience and determination of both competitors.
