In a thrilling development, WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley has been confirmed to participate in tonight’s episode of NXT.
This news has sent ripples of excitement across the WWE universe, as fans eagerly anticipate Ripley’s return to the NXT ring.
Rhea Ripley NXT Match
The announcement of Ripley’s NXT match on July 25 was made via social media, following the July 24th episode of WWE Raw.
In a video clip that has since gone viral, Ripley’s interview was interrupted by NXT’s Lyra Valkyria. Valkyria, eager to prove her mettle, challenged Ripley to an NXT match, thereby forfeiting her scheduled match with Jacy Jayne for a chance to face the WWE World Women’s Champion.
Tonight’s episode of WWE NXT will begin with Ripley and the new North American Champion, “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio.
Mysterio recently claimed the title after defeating Wes Lee in last week’s WWE NXT. Since his victory, Mysterio has successfully defended his title against Butch on the July 21st episode of WWE SmackDown and Sami Zayn on last night’s WWE Raw.
