What's next for Rhea Ripley as the Women's World Champion?
Since joining The Judgment Day last year, Rhea Ripley has become one of the biggest names on the WWE women's roster. Capitalizing on her momentum, Ripley won the 2023 Women's Royal Rumble match. She later defeated Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 39 and captured the women's title.
Speaking of The Eradicator's title reign, it has been decent until now. She has had two personal feuds against Natalya and Raquel Rodriguez since becoming champion. During her latest championship defense against Big Mami Cool, Nia Jax returned to WWE and assaulted the latter, allowing Ripley to reign supreme.
Jax surprisingly attacked The Judgment Day member following the contest, possibly laying the foundation for the latter's next title program. Ripley has been away from WWE programming since the assault, but many expect her to return soon.
Upon her imminent comeback, Ripley could lock horns with Jax at a major event like Fastlane or Survivor Series 2023. Many have expressed displeasure about the Women's World Champion not having enough credible challengers on RAW. However, The Irresistible Force's arrival could solve that issue.
