Current SmackDown Women's Champion Rhea Ripley is arguably the biggest name in WWE's entire women's division. She is also part of one of the most popular factions current in the company, The Judgment Day. Her real-life boyfriend, Buddy Matthews is also part of a dominant group, The House of Black, who are the current AEW World Trios Champions.
On tonight's episode of Dynamite, The House of Black took on the trio of Blake Christian, AR Fox, and Metalik. The champions would dominate the entirety of the match. The bout ended via submission as Matthews, the legal man, held Fox specifically in a submission hold until he tapped out.
Fans would notice that Matthews was using a submission hold very similar to the Prism Trap (Standing Inverted Texas Cloverleaf) that his girlfriend Rhea uses. The move helped Buddy to get a win for his team. He would then go to Twitter, tagging The Eradicator and letting her know that her move won him the match.

The submission hold has won the SmackDown Women's Champion a lot of matches over the years and this time the move helped her real-life boyfriend Buddy Matthews.
