Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio have had quite an effect on Finn Balor.
The Judgment Day has caused quite a stir in WWE with their current line-up boasting the Women’s World Champion, Señor Money In The Bank, and the NXT North American Champion.
Finn Balor could have added to that haul at SummerSlam when he challenged Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Title but a miscommunication with Priest led to a defeat. Despite the rising tension in the group, Finn Balor has spoken glowingly about The Judgment Day’s two younger members.
Speaking to Sportskeeda, Finn Balor explained how Ripley and Mysterio’s youth – both stars are 26 – have rubbed off on him and Damian Priest:
“(Rhea Ripley) brings an unquantifiable charisma that, I feel, rubs off on everyone that’s around her. She’s got the x-factor that very few people have in this world let alone this business. Just getting to be around her and Dominik, their youthful exuberance rubs off on me and Damian.”
Rhea Ripley celebrating in and out of the ring
Rhea Ripley has dominated the women’s division in WWE since she won what was then the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 39. The last time the Women’s World Champion lost on TV in a singles match was well over a year ago against Liv Morgan on Raw in May 2022.
Now Ripley has reason to celebrate in her personal life as well as she has revealed she is now engaged to AEW star Buddy Matthews.
