Rhea Ripley, the immensely popular women's star in WWE, has recently sparked controversy with her declaration involving announcer Samantha Irvin, the real-life partner of Ricochet. This unexpected turn of events has left Cathy Kelley, who happens to be one of Irvin's close friends, feeling quite upset.
Ripley, however, has now responded to Kelley's discontent. During a recent WWE Live Event, Rhea Ripley blew a kiss towards Samantha Irvin, catching the attention of the ring announcer who commented favorably on the gesture.
The Women's Champion took to Twitter to share the exchange and playfully claimed that Irvin was now her girlfriend. In a playful twist, Ripley even tagged Cathy Kelley, further fueling the drama.

Responding to the retweeted exchange, Catherine Kelley took a lighthearted approach, jokingly expressing her surprise at learning about her supposed separation from Irvin via Twitter.
Ripley, in turn, replied by stating that such is the nature of life and how things sometimes unfold, emphasizing the inherent unfairness of it all. Although Rhea Ripley does not have a match of her own, the upcoming WWE Money in the Bank event holds significant implications for her and the Judgment Day.
Fellow Judgment Day members, Finn Balor and Damian Priest, are slated for crucial matches at the event. Balor will challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship, while Priest will participate in the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder match.
With existing tension between Priest and Balor, the outcomes of their respective matches could potentially add further strain within the group. In addition to the aforementioned matches, Dominik Mysterio is set to face Cody Rhodes, with Rhea Ripley being advertised to appear ringside.
This signifies that Ripley's involvement extends beyond her own match, indicating her continued influence and presence within the WWE universe. As the wrestling world eagerly anticipates the Money in the Bank event, Rhea Ripley's personal drama and her entanglement with Samantha Irvin, as well as her ongoing interactions with Cathy Kelley, add an extra layer of intrigue to the unfolding events.
Fans and critics alike await the resolution of these storylines, curious to witness the impact they may have on the Judgment Day and the overall WWE landscape.
