What happened to Rhea Ripley? Why is Rhea Ripley out of the WWE?

Demi Bennett is an Australian professional wrestler. She performs on the Raw brand for WWE, where she is currently signed, as Rhea Ripley. Moreover, Ripley is a member of The Judgment Day stable, and her 380-day reign as a former Women’s World Champion is tied with Bayley as the longest in the title’s history.

What happened to Rhea Ripley? 

This week on Raw, Rhea Ripley gave up the Women’s World Championship after suffering an injury.

The career of the most amazing female wrestler in WWE history, “Mami” Rhea Ripley, has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. On Monday Night RAW on April 15, the Judgement Day member was compelled to relinquish her WWE Women’s World Championship.

With a glum expression on her face, Ripley left the building and informed the Montreal audience that Liv Morgan’s attack the night before WrestleMania 40 had injured her.

Ripley’s convincing victory over “The Man,” Becky Lynch, at WrestleMania 40 occurred just ten days ago. After winning the title at WrestleMania 39, Ripley has successfully defended it ever since. However, an injury has now forced her to give up the title. 

Indeed, no one wants to see a title reign end like this, especially one as dominant as Ripley’s, which has seen her become the face of WWE’s women’s division and possibly its next great attraction. Despite the regrettable circumstances, Ripley’s decision to forfeit the Women’s World Championship is anything but bullsh*t.

Rhea Ripley stated on Raw, according to Fox Sports, “This championship means the most to me in my entire life, which is why this is so painful.”

Rhea Ripley Isn’t The Only One

Injuries have been detrimental to wrestler’s careers and Ripley isn’t the first superstar to vacate her championship. Numerous wrestlers, including Edge, Finn Balor, and Roman Reigns, were forced to relinquish their championship titles in the past.

Who will challenge for the WWE Women’s World Championship next?

After Rhea Ripley, either Becky Lynch or Liv Morgan are the top contenders for the belt. Additionally, there may be a match between the top contenders, with the championship potentially going to the eventual victor.

Also, the two might square off at Backlash on May 5, 2024, and WWE might have a new champion crowned at the pay-per-view event.
