Can you blame her? We are less than a week removed from WWE Survivor Series and the show did not seem to inspire the fans as much as it has in previous years. The main story of the show was the battle between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown for brand supremacy. This included a pair of Survivor Series matches, and one participant does not seem thrilled with how her match was set up.
In a recent interview with SportsKeeda, Monday Night Raw’s Rhea Ripley said that she was disappointed that Nikki Ash, her regular tag team partner, was not part of this year’s Raw Survivor Series team. Ripley said that the two of them were both disappointed and that she found it a little bit disrespectful for Ash to not be included. Ash and Ripley lost the Women’s Tag Team Titles to Carmella and Queen Zelina this week on Monday Night Raw.
She’s not wrong on a lot of this. Check out the interview, how they work together, plus Ash on her own and how the Survivor Series match went:
Opinion: I can’t say I disagree with Ripley, as it never made a ton of sense to have one of the champions on the team while the other was just sitting on the sidelines. The team wasn’t exactly the most dominant in the first place but it would make sense to have someone with a title in the lineup. That should have been a bad sign for the team’s future and then they lost the titles the next night, which shouldn’t be the biggest surprise.
What did you think of the match? Does Ripley have a point? Let us know in the comments below.
