Welcome back. Wrestling is built on the idea of long term stories and that means things can be shaken up in a big way if someone is taken out. One of the most common ways this happens is through an injury, as a wrestler can be put on the shelf for a period of time. That was the case with a Monday Night Raw star, but now she is back and already getting physical.
Rhea Ripley made her return to television on this week’s Monday Night Raw. Ripley appeared in a backstage segment to distract Rey Mysterio, allowing the rest of her Judgment Day teammates to attack him. Later in the show, Ripley appeared again and kicked Mysterio in his injured arm. This was Ripley’s first appearance since June 13 as she was pulled due to a variety of medical issues.
Opinion: It’s great to have Ripley back as you never want to see someone go on the shelf for any length of time. Ripley is someone who could be inserted into the Raw Women’s Title picture without much trouble and it would be nice to have some fresh blood around the championship. There is no one like her on the roster and thankfully everything seems to be back to normal for her.
What did you think of Ripley’s return? What is next for her? Let us know in the comments below.
