Rhea Ripley WWE

Rhea Ripley no longer has the respect of one WWE star.

Lyra Valkyria blindsided Ripley following the main event of the August 8th episode of NXT, where Dominik Mysterio retained the North American Championship against Dragon Lee thanks to help from Mami.

After the bell rang, Ripley got in the ring to join Dominik in gloating about the victory and confronting Rey. Running in from the crowd, Valkyria knocked Ripley out of the ring, leaving herself, Lee, and the Hall of Famer to stand tall.

Taking to social media after NXT went off the air, Valkyria responded to the post stating that she took out the Women’s Champion with the statement “Yes I Did.”

On the 15th of August edition of NXT the Women’s World Champion laid down a challenge for NXT Heatwave which will take place on the 22nd of August. Ripley wanted both Valkyria and Dragon Lee to meet her and Dominik Mysterio in a tag team bout and the match was soon made official.

What did Lyra Valkyria say about Rhea Ripley?

After Rhea Ripley commented on the upcoming match, Valkyria again retreated to social media to say she has lost respect for Ripley:

“You LOST our respect… Well… I mean Dom never had it but anyway you still have my attention”

Despite being Women’s World Champion, Rhea Ripley has not defended her title since the 3rd of July edition of Raw where she defeated Natalya. That was only the third defence of the title since Ripley won it from Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 39.
