WWE Star Backstage At AEW Event Amid In-Ring Hiatus

WWE Star Backstage At AEW Event Amid In-Ring Hiatus WWE

An absent WWE star was spotted backstage visiting at the May 26 AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view, amid speculation about her return to the ring.

Rhea Ripley hasn’t wrestled since defending her WWE Women’s World Championship against Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 40.

She was forced to relinquish the title in April after suffering an arm injury during a backstage segment with Liv Morgan.

With Morgan currently holding the WWE Women’s World Title, there has been a lot of speculation about Ripley’s return for a potential match against her former teammate.

Fightful Select now reports that Rhea Ripley was backstage visiting at AEW Double or Nothing.

Ripley is engaged to AEW star Buddy Matthews. While Matthews didn’t wrestle at the pay-per-view, he did interfere in his House of Black faction mate’s match, helping out Malakai Black by attacking Adam Copeland in their Barbed Wire Steel Cage match.

Matthews was then attacked by Gangrel, who made a surprise appearance to help Copeland.

Amid Rhea Ripley’s WWE absence, Liv Morgan has taken an interest in Dominik Mysterio, who she kissed after her match on the May 27 Raw episode.

Another Judgment Day member has thrown shade on Liv Morgan following her recent interactions with Mysterio, which you can read more about right here.
