Interesting Note Internally Within WWE Following Rhea Ripley’s Return On Raw

In an exciting turn of events, WWE Superstar Rhea Ripley has made her highly anticipated return last night on Monday Night RAW after being sidelined with an injury.

Following her official return to the company, it has been reported by that Rhea Ripley has now been classified internally as a babyface by WWE. The change in Ripley’s designation within the company seemingly signifies a potential shift in her character portrayal moving forward.

A report from Fightful Select in late June indicated that WWE wanted Ripley to return to television ahead of SummerSlam even if she wasn’t yet cleared for active competition.

The recent developments surrounding Ripley’s return have ignited speculation among fans and wrestling enthusiasts. Known for her fierce and intense presence, the indication of a possible character change within WWE raises questions about the direction Ripley’s storyline may take.

On the April 8th episode of Monday Night Raw, Rhea Ripley found herself caught in a backstage brawl with Liv Morgan. Unfortunately, Ripley suffered an injury during the altercation, later revealed to be a sprained AC joint. As a result, she was forced to relinquish her title on the April 10th episode of Raw after an impressive 380-day reign as champion. Promising to return and seek revenge on Morgan, Ripley expressed her determination to confront the woman she labeled as a “coward” for blindsiding her.

Since that fateful night, Rhea Ripley has been absent from WWE programming. However, her presence has not been forgotten, especially by Liv Morgan, who has taunted the injured star by making advances towards Ripley’s on-screen partner. Morgan’s actions included kissing Dominik Mysterio after the May 27th episode of Raw and later stealing Mysterio’s vest, leading to a provocative moment between the two on June 17th.

On the latest episode of WWE RAW, a tag team match took place featuring Dominik Mysterio teaming up with Liv Morgan against Rey Mysterio and Zelina Vega. After a highly intense contest, Dominik and Morgan emerged as the victorious duo. However, as they were about to celebrate, a surprising turn of events unfolded. Rhea Ripley’s entrance music played, prompting Liv Morgan to quickly escape through the crowd. Rhea confronted Dominik in the ring, pushing him away as he attempted to embrace her. Despite Dominik’s efforts to explain the situation, Ripley showed no interest in listening to his explanations, leading to an intriguing cliffhanger.

Throughout her career, Ripley has established herself as a dominant force in WWE, captivating audiences with her unique style and undeniable talent. Her return promises to bring a renewed energy to the WWE roster, as fans eagerly anticipate the electrifying matches and compelling rivalries she will undoubtedly be a part of.

As Rhea Ripley embarks on this new chapter of her wrestling journey, the WWE Universe eagerly awaits the unveiling of her potential character shift. With her undeniable presence and remarkable skills, Ripley is poised to leave an indelible mark on the industry, captivating audiences worldwide with her captivating performances.
