Rhea Ripley is injured and will be forced to miss her scheduled match at Money In The Bank against Bianca Belair. Meanwhile, after the live announcement at the opening of Bianca Belair on Raw, the WWE has launched a Fatal 5-Way match to decree a new n°1 contender for the title and in the contest were included Asuka, Becky Lynch, Liv Morgan, Alexa Bliss and Carmella, with all these names who have already been former world champions (except Liv Morgan) in different situations and it was Carmella who won.
Although the nature of the injury was initially unknown, even though the assumptions all pointed towards the small incident that led The Nightmare to run to the dentist to have his broken teeth fixed, Rhea has made it clear that it is a head problem.
Rhea Ripley is injured
Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, and almost every female WWE star regularly post images on social media. Speaking on this week's episode of Legion of RAW, Russo noted that the wrestlers look entirely different from how they are portrayed on RAW, SmackDown and NXT.
During today's Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez discussed the matter. Meltzer said she is not expected to be away from the square that long. “Her teeth were broken in a match and she had braces on.
The set was evident on her the last time she was on TV. The other thing must have been when she talked about her brain, which usually means a concussion. As we said before, we said it on Monday when we announced it. The two things WWE doesn't like to talk about are COVID and concussions.
I've known people in WWE who have both of them [said] outright: 'We've been told not to say that.' She said it. She didn't really use the word concussion, but she had a brain injury that's what she said.
I've been told she won't be on pay-per-view, of course. They have said this very clearly, but it is not expected to be a long-term absence. She should be back very soon. I don't know what it is. I have never seen a television show that has attempted to make very attractive women look unattractive," said Vince Russo.
"I don't understand. I'm not just talking about Becky Lynch. I'm talking about Rhea Ripley. I don't understand it. Bro, Rhea Ripley put a picture up of her this week, and she looks stunning. I mean, absolutely stunning."
