Rhea Ripley Announced For NXT Match

Rhea Ripley

Rhea Ripley is making a return to NXT.

Previously, NXT’s Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez agreed on a “pick your poison” tag team match, scheduled to take place on Tuesday’s episode of the developmental brand, where Jade would pick an opponent for Perez, and vice versa.

Last Friday on WWE Smackdown, Roxanne Perez would show up, eventually asking Raquel Rodriguez backstage if she could help her take on Jade, which Rodriguez accepted. However, it would come with a price with Perez, eventually losing to Damage CTRL later in the night after being challenged by Bayley after she was offended Perez didn’t ask her to be her partner.

On WWE Monday Night Raw, Cora Jade made an appearance in an attempt to get her partner. While Judgment Day was backstage, Jade approached Rhea Ripley, asking her if she’d be interested in teaming up against Perez and Rodriguez. Ripley didn’t need much persuasion, quickly accepting the offer from Jade.

Now with Jade finding her partner, the “pick your poison” tag team match is now set for Tuesday night’s NXT, with the bout officially being booked as Cora Jade and Rhea Ripley vs. Roxanne Perez and Raquel Rodriguez. The show is scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM ET on USA Network.
