• Update On Rhea Ripley’s Status After Brain Injury
Rhea Ripley earned the right to challenge Bianca Belair for the RAW Women’s Championship at Money In The Bank 2022 a few months back.
However, she got pulled from the match as she was not cleared to compete.
When a fan said Ripley doesn’t look injured on Instagram, she replied:
“Brain/teeth. Can’t see a brain injury. Stop being incompetent and reaching at nothing.”
Rhea got hurt after her head collided with her own knee after taking a DDT from Alexa Bliss.

She wrestled two tag team matches at this weekend’s Live Events. She teamed up with Damian Priest to lose to the team of Dolph Ziggler & Nikki A.S.H. at these events.
