Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving Rhea Ripley and Finn Balor.

• In the main event of RAW, Dominik Mysterio & Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan defeated The LWO (Rey Mysterio & Zelina Vega).

Since Liv helped Dominik finally pin Rey, Dominik celebrated with Liv and that’s exactly when Rhea Ripley’s music hit and Mami returned!

Rhea went after Liv, but Liv ran away. Rhea looked at Dirty Dom with disappointment and turned down a hug from him before leaving.

According to PWInsider, Rhea is internally listed as a babyface now, while the others members of Judgment Day are still listed as heels.

• Since Endeavor took charge and merged WWE with the UFC, the company has approached contracts differently. While several superstars like Drew McIntyre, Chad Gable, and Seth Rollins have signed new deals, others such as Ricochet have left. However, Finn Balor is staying put.

During an interview on What’s The Story, World Tag Team Champion Finn Balor confirmed he has signed a 5-year contract extension with WWE. Balor shared his excitement about the extension and reflected on his career:

“Yeah, another extension for 5 years. I’m super excited. You never know. I remember when I was 20 and I was like, ‘If I make it to 30 I’ll be doing well.’ Then, you’re in your 40s and I’m like, ‘Do they want me to keep doing this? Am I able to keep doing it? How is the body going to feel?’ We sat down, had a couple of conversations, and the feelings were mutual. I wanted to stay, they wanted me to stay. We hashed it out and I couldn’t be happier. It was a strange time.”

Balor also discussed his career journey, noting the unexpected longevity of his WWE tenure:

“It was 6 months to when my contract was coming up. I thought, ‘Is this the end of my run? Is it time to move on?’ 10 Years is incredible. I lasted for 6 years in England and thought, ‘England is always going to be the biggest chapter of my career.’ Then I went to Japan for 8 years. ‘You lasted 8 years in Japan. That’s definitely going to be the main chunk of my career.’

Then, I went to WWE to see what happens, maybe last 2 or 3 years and go back to Ireland or Japan. Now, I’m 10 years in with another 5 years to go. Fingers crossed they don’t fire me. It’s a pretty wild journey.”
