Rhea Ripley is most certainly one of the top female WWE Superstars right now and she has garnered a major fanbase thanks to her dominating presence. She also has a lot of love for her Dom Dom but it appears WWE intentionally separated the two before Elimination Chamber this year.

During the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event, Rhea Ripley defended the Women’s World Championship against Nia Jax in the main event, where she was essentially treated like babyface despite being a heel in Perth, Australia.

While speaking with Comicbook Nation, Dominik Mysterio claimed that WWE kept him separated from Rhea Ripley so that fans would not boo Rhea Ripley in Australia because of her association with Mysterio.

“She’s just so loved by the fans and the people. I’m the complete opposite. They do not like me. There have been times, everything leading up to Australia in Perth, that’s why you do not see me and Rhea together. She was gonna get cheered in Australia and they wanted her to get cheered in Australia. At any point in time, if I was with her in Australia or leading up to it, she’d get booed. It’s crazy, right?”


Dominik Mysterio inadvertently helped Liv Morgan win the Women’s World Championship at WWE King and Queen of The Ring, so we will have to wait and see what Rhea Ripley will have to say one she does return to WWE television and confronts him.
