Former WWE NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley will join on RAW soon. Earlier this year, Ripley was officially called-up to WWE’s main roster for the Women’s Royal Rumble match. Today, WWE has announced on WWE Monday Night Raw that Ripley will be added to the main roster on RAW.
Rhea Ripley became NXT Women’s Champion and NXT UK Women’s Champion also. In her last appearance on the 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble, she eliminated the most competitors at 7 and stayed 39 minutes on the stage. However, the Australian professional wrestler finished second to Bianca Belair, and it was her second Royal Rumble appearance. Ripley’s first Royal Rumble appearance was in 2019.
Career summary of Rhea Ripley
Previously, in her NXT Women’s title at WrestleMania, Ripley faced Charlotte Flair. Besides, she also fought Sarah Logan in a singles match on WWE RAW in February of 2020. Before that, Rhea Ripley participated in 2017 in the Mae Young Classic and later signed a contract with NXT. The following year she also appeared in the second Mae Young Classic. Later, the 24-year-old wrestler moved to NXT UK and became the inaugural NXT UK Women’s Champion.
In 2019, she moved to NXT again and won the NXT Women’s title by defeating Shayna Baszler. In her seven years of career, this Australian champion has been a woman of many firsts, so it will be fascinating to see how she handle her appearance in the upcoming main roster.
The fellow wrestlers are supporting her after the announcement. WWE shared a powerful GIF that reads ‘Rhea Ripley Coming Soon’ on its official Twitter account. And, in the comment section, people have expressed how excited and eager they are waiting for her comeback.

Foley wrote, “It’s vital that @WWE not mess around when it comes to pushing @RheaRipley_WWE. PLEASE don’t allow her to suffer a 50/50 fate. Strap that rocket to her back, and see how far she can fly.”
