The WWE RAW brand heads to Rhea Ripley.
After her official call-up from WWE NXT was deemed to be at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in late January, there had been speculation about Ripley probably going to RAW or SmackDown. WWE has now confirmed that the former NXT Women’s Champion is heading off on Monday nights.
As seen below, during tonight’s post-Elimination Chamber edition of RAW, a “coming soon” vignette for Ripley aired.
Last month, Ripley was the #14 entrant in the 30-Woman Rumble Match, and was the final elimination, tossed out by Bianca Belair, the winner. She lasted for 39:06 and, with Belair’s help, eliminated Toni Storm, Santana Garrett, Dana Brooke, Dakota Kai, Mandy Rose, Alexa Bliss, and Charlotte Flair. Ripley’s last NXT TV match came on January 6, when she lost to Raquel Gonzalez in the Last Woman Standing match in the New Year’s Evil special.
When Ripley makes her official RAW debut, there is still no word on it, but stay tuned as we will keep you updated. The vignette from tonight’s RAW is below.
