Rhea Ripley is out and injured due to current WWE Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan. Ripley was attacked by Morgan the night after she retained her title against Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 40. In a brutal assault, Morgan slammed Ripley against the wall, which led ‘Mami’ sustain a shoulder injury.

There have been also theories on Liv Morgan replacing Ripley in the Judgement Day faction, due to her constantly poking her nose into the affairs of Judgement day, especially her flirtatious attempts with Mami’s boy, Dominik Mysterio.

However, there is a new update on Rhea Ripley’s potential plans in the company. According to Fightful Select, Ripley can very much return before SummerSlam which is on August 3, 2024, and her role could be getting into WWE programming, even if it’s in a non-wrestling capacity.
 

What is Rhea Ripley intended to do upon her return?

While the general view is that Ripley might come and exact her revenge on Morgan to reclaim her WWE title, the backstage news indicates that might not be the case. According to Fightful Select, “the story available at the time of her return” will indicate her onscreen direction.

It was also reported that many creative decisions had been made in Rhea’s absence from the WWE. Meanwhile, Ripley has taken some time off wrestling, and is spending time with her fiancee, Buddy Mathews.
