A WWE name has revealed the reason behind their rare in-ring spots.
Rhea Ripley has become a frontrunner on the WWE women’s roster since aligning with Finn Balor, Damien Priest and later, Dominik Mysterio of Judgment Day.
Ripley was out of action for several months after suffering an injury in June 2022.
She continued to appear alongside the Judgment Day faction and returned to in-ring action in October.
Rhea Ripley has featured in several tag matches during WWE Live Events since her injury.
Notably, she has not seen much in-ring action on WWE television.
She fought Roxanne Perez on NXT on October 18 and recently defeated Asuka on the November 21 edition of Raw.
The Judgment Day member has now addressed the reason behind her rare in-ring spots.
In an interview with the New York Post, Ripley said she sees her career “starting up again,” and explained:
“I hadn’t been cleared for the longest time. I think I got cleared properly and fully the week before my “NXT” match.
“Apart from that, I pretty much wasn’t cleared that whole time.
“After that, there pretty much hasn’t been an opportunity for me to wrestle because I have been there with The Judgement Day and sort of their muscle. I help them out if they need me.”
Rhea Ripley will be teaming with Damage CTRL and Nikki Cross to take on Alexa Bliss, Asuka, Bianca Belair, Mia Yim and a TBA at Survivor Series WarGames on November 26.
